LGIS in the Community

Students at LGIS have several opportunities to extend their learning beyond the classroom by participating in a wide range of Creative, Active and community Service activities (CAS). Through involvement with groups such as Habitat for Humanity, JAAGO, CRP Swimming, School of Hope, MUN and the Ashic Foundation, students broaden their understanding of humanitarian issues in the local, national and international communities. The programme provides a rich learning experience that promotes responsible citizenship and personal growth.

To spread kindness, the volunteers of VBD Chittagong & Dhaka District visited our school on 3rd October 2016. They described the students about GKC and the importance of kindness.

Then the students were asked to make ‘Thank You’ Cards and give the cards to those people who they thought works relentlessly.

The students enjoyed the task very much and after making the cards, they gave it to their Teachers and Office staff of their school saying thank you. Heartiest thanks to the volunteers.
