The students follow a balanced schedule at the boarding school. During week days, our students begin their day at 6:00 am followed up by breakfast at 7:15 am. The meals are nutritious prepared by highly professional chefs under hygienic norms. Also, the diet chart is prepared keeping in mind the choice of students. The menu changes over time so that the students enjoy a variety of cuisines. After breakfast, students attend assembly and then head to their respective classes. Once school finishes, they return for snacks to the cafeteria and then get their presence marked for one hour of outdoor games. They come back to their dorms for a shower, followed by an hour of study time and then dinner. Post dinner they can talk to their parents and relatives and then prepare for the next day before going to bed.
Weekends are the perfect time to relax, unwind and go out for day hikes, excursions (a trip to one of Delhi’s museums, parks or even animal shelters), indoor/ outdoor sports, matches, value sessions, and a visit to the mall for shopping or to catch up on a movie.
Lancers International School makes a constant effort to give a meaningful, fun, experiential learning to the students in most effective manner possible.
