“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” - Mahatma Gandhi
'Joy of Giving' has been the hallmark of the educational ethos at Sanawar. Social Service has been an integral part of The Lawrence School, Sanawar since its inception as the idea of establishing Sanawar has its roots in a social cause. Social work is encouraged in Sanawar to inculcate among children the core educational values such as compassion, social responsibility, charity, and empathy for the poor and the disadvantaged section of society.
The Sanawarians have always risen to the occasion and lent their helping hands when natural calamities such as earthquakes, landslides, floods, and pandemics including Covid-19 affected the lives and livelihoods of our countrymen in general and neighbouring communities in particular.
The Socially Useful Productive Work (S.U.P.W), a mandatory part of Sanawar’s curriculum requires all students of the School to complete mandatory hours of social service. As a part of its community outreach program, the School adopts villages and works with the villagers to bring about a positive change in the quality of life in the areas of health, education, sanitation, and conservation of natural resources. We undertake need-based development work in collaboration with the neighbouring rural communities and Panchayati Raj Institutions. Staff and students of the School frequently volunteer their labour towards building community centers, school buildings, and toilets. The School also collaborates with NGOs to support and promote their work dedicated to the welfare and empowerment of the poor and the deprived section of society.
The Lawrence School, Sanawar is one of the regional spearheads of the Round Square Group of Schools and regularly participates in and hosts international service projects. Moreover, The International Award for Young People (IAYP) program run by the School further motivates our students to wholeheartedly dedicate themselves to participating in service projects.
