There is no religion greater than humanity

Ms. Saman Ijaz (DOS)The firm belief that charity is the real investment with our Creator that, He has promised to return with much greater reward on the day of judgement, drives and motivates us to do even more.

Ms. Saman Ijaz, former Director of Studies LCGG, donated an amount of Rupees thirty thousand on 13th June, 2019 for welfare of the junior staff of the College. She desired this amount to be used to support their children’s education.

The Principal and staff of the College are thankful for this kind contribution. May she be blessed with long and healthy life.

A life lived for others is a life worthwhile

Happiness doesn’t result from what we get, but from what we give. LCGG families share the values of empathy and make an effort to gel each member in acts of kindness. The Ladies Club continued its tradition of multiplying the happiness of Eid and making it sweeter for the custodian staff at LCGG. A handsome amount, contributed by the Ladies Club members, was collected to purchase 224 kg of sugar, and was distributed among 112 members of the support staff. 

Mr. Nouman Yousaf, an old Gallian, and Gallian Welfare Trust of Inter 1988, donated generously an amount of Rs. 200,000 which was disbursed among 245 junior staff members equally as Eidi. The trust has been actively involved in taking certain steps for welfare of the support staff for the past few years. It shows their love for their alma mater and the life skills they learned at GG.

The Principal, staff and students of Lawrence College highly appreciate the passion and spirit of Gallian Welfare Trust of Inter 1988. We believe it will motivate many others to be kind and helpful to the needy and poor wherever they are and whatever way possible.

Mathematics Workshop

LCGG always strives to keep its faculty abreast of the evolving teaching techniques. Since Mathematics is a core subject at all levels in the College, few Mathematics faculty members attended a workshop on 11th May, 2019 in Islamabad, conducted by Mr. Shad Moarif, a Harvard graduate, president CLSO Learning System, developer of Karismaths program and pioneer of Universal Design of Learning or UDL.

Principal Lawrence College, Brig Mujahid Alam (Retd), invited Mr. Shad Moarif to visit the campus to enable the whole Mathematics faculty to benefit from his rich and diverse 35 years’ experience of teaching Mathematics to children and adults internationally, through an interactive session. Mr. Shad graciously accepted to visit and a session was held on 13th May, 2019 where he shared not only the details of Karismath but also discussed in detail the pedagogical logics for maths teaching in senior classes. Teachers showed keen interest in this innovative way of teaching Mathematics catering to the individual need and pace of learners assisted by visual aids. The session proved very beneficial.

The Principal too highly appreciated the Karismath approach towards teaching Mathematics and intends to implement this at junior level in Lawrence College. Mr. Shad Moarif ensured his full support in launching Karismath program through his time to time guidance in future as well.

Welfare of the Support Staff

Welfare of the staff of an organisation is one of the most important duties of the administration. At Lawrence College, this area has always been considered a priority.

The Principal, Brig. Mujahid Alam (Retd), strengthened this bond further by continuing his initiative of providing a bursary of Rs.1000 per child to the wards of the College employees in BPS 1-15. This applies to both residential and non-residential staff and will help them, at the start of the academic year, in provision of course books, uniform, etc. for their children. This year a sum of Rs. 471,000 (four hundred and seventy-one thousand Rupees) has been paid for 471 children of 139 employees. 

Another step taken this year to facilitate the staff in BPS 1-15 is that their sons studying at Lawrence College securing 80% and above marks in Annual Examination 2018 will be awarded 100% waive off in their fee along with free books and uniform. Nine students qualified for this. The scholarship winners, their proud parents, were invited to the Principal’s office on 3rd May, 2019 in presence of the three school heads and Director of Studies.

The Principal, Brig Mujahid Alam (Retd) appreciated the hard work of boys and he acknowledged the contribution of the parents in this regard. He assured his continuous support for the passionate learners.

This step will surely build confidence of these parents and strengthen the belief of all students in hard work. These welfare steps by the College administration is a clear depiction of its motto as well as its policy to bring forth empathy as the top most life skill to be inculcated in our staff and students.

Participants of Young Ulema Leadership Programme visit LCGG

On 25th April, 2019, Maulana Jahangir Mahmud, Director Society for Educational Research, visited Lawrence College with a group of eighty young Ulemas. They were warmly received by the members of the Islamic Studies Department. The visit was a part of an effort, Maulana Jahangir Mahmud had been making for the last five years across the country, through his programme YULP (Young Ulema Leadership Programme) to build a strong bridge of inter faith harmony.

Principal Brig. Mujahid Alam (Retd), in his welcome address to the young scholars in Hamid Hall, appreciated the efforts made through the YULP. He briefed the young visitors about Lawrence College, its history, traditions, academics and training programmes. He also briefed them about the focus laid on character building of Gallians through meaningful assemblies, activities, talks, daily conversation, healthy competitions and events in mosques. He told them that students from all the regions of Pakistan were living at LCGG like a family as no bias, prejudice or sectarianism is tolerated here. Special focus is laid on the religious education of students. Zohr and Maghrib prayers are compulsory for them and they are made to learn the translation of Namaz. The last sermon of the Holy Prophet (SAW) has been displayed in all the halls and libraries so that the students could learn the lessons of peace, equity and brotherhood from that sermon.

Talking to the young scholars, for their guidance, the Principal stressed on the need that morals prove as the catalyst of change and can be a source of success here and hereafter. He said that the Rasool (SAW) earned the title of Sadiq and Ameen due to his morals and character before he was bestowed with nabuwwat. The Charter of Madinah teaches harmony among the people from all religions that turned the State of Madinah into an exemplary state and model for the ages to come. We need to go for introspection instead of finding faults with others. Discussing the ethics of disagreement, he said that the difference of opinion should be constructive, not destructive. In the same context, he said that we should correct and advise others in a polite and wise manner. He advised them to be extremely careful while passing some remarks about anybody else. He also advised them to shun hatred and pride as they are the root cause of many social evils. He said that we need to present a brighter image of Islam before the World by sacrificing individual interest for national interest.

The address of the Principal was followed by a question-answer session. The young scholars raised many questions which received satisfactory answers. In the end, Maulana Jahangir Mahmud thanked the Principal and College administration for facilitating the visit. The participants were served with scrumptious tea and a delicious lunch. After enjoying a beautiful day in Murree they left the campus with unforgettable memories.
