Smt. Shashikala E.R is one of our rare statesmen that Karnataka has seen. She has founded so many such useful ventures to the public. It was her dream to begin an institution which should give the best education for those people who are taking their children out of Karnataka in search of a good institution. The dream of Smt. Shashikala E.R has now turned into a reality after the initiation of Shashi Education Trust, which is constituted by professionals, educationists, administrators, Academicians and technocrats. The trust established Lalitha International Public School, in Lokikere Main Road, Davangere in the year 2011.
An industrialist, educationist, and above all a man with a rare foresight, Dr Sri Raviraja, is a visionary who envisages human excellence and strive with enthusiasm to steer young minds into paths of nobility. He has inspired the administrative members and the faculty for aspire the greater height and to create excellence in all their achievements.
Life will not be meaningful if you leave for yourself. We must have the enthusiasm to serve the society this can be instrumented in the development of the country and the people. Positive forces must be created to bring the society together. Education is a continuous process by which a generation is prepared for the future and providing many opportunities to develop the personality of the student. LIRS aims to develop the best that s latent in them and to prepare the students for the challenges of the changing world. It also help the students to acquire ethical and moral values through informal education. Students are trained to face the competitive world to help them. Pursue the variety of creative interests and to choose a career. The school being secular creates the right environment to help the teachers and the taught to learn and left fearlessly.
It is my hope LIRS will shine like a beacon of light throughout the world spreading education and knowledge.
Youngsters need to understand the purpose of life. They need courage and wisdom to face the challenges of life. With that understanding they become the light of the world. If we care for them responsibly, moulding their whole character with love, then the future of the world will be safe.
We believe in an educational philosophy that is both ebullient and in accordance with the altering demands of the society. 'Team Lalitha' strives to focus on each and every child, monitor and mentor the young learners and mould them into compassionate and confident individuals. A host of ardent and committed educators, the state of the art library and laboratories, cutting edge curricula, exciting co-scholastic activities and abundance of other essential facilities make the perfect recipe for forging ideal characters. In an effort to make teaching more engaging and interactive, each classroom has been fitted with the latest smart class technology that imparts an enduring, interesting and exciting learning experience. Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way. Hence, the school curriculum has been designed to nourish the physical, emotional, social and cultural needs of the students. Let’s say, we at Lalitha, don’t tell the children what to think but how to think. The school provides an appropriate and participative learning milieu, inculcating life skills in the susceptible minds. It is mandatory for all the students to take part in the activities that stimulate critical thinking and problem-solving abilities. The idea is to make tutelage meaningful and relevant to the socio-economic needs of the times and also to equip our youth to face sundry challenges. The school has attained its eminence through the achievements of its students. It gives me immense pleasure to state that our students have been garnering accolades in a series of prestigious contests held in inter-school, district and national and international level. The excellence manifested in the scholastic and co-scholastic ambits have been receiving the acclaim that it deserves. These achievements keep us inspired to perform even better in the years to come.
In the era of eroding values, it is highly gratifying to see the progress the school has made by imbibing in its students value based education synergized with modern teaching-learning methods. The administration and staff believe that every student is unique, special and gifted. Through various means, such as workshops, class assemblies, awareness campaigns and special programmes, students are continually encouraged to appreciate the diverse community and develop a concern and active respect for the environment. After all, all of us wish to see a generation of well informed and emotionally sound youngsters at the helm of affairs in future. Dalai Lama had once said, "When educating the minds of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts". Keeping with this ideology, the school has initiated an initiative that aims at strengthening the moral fire of the students by allowing them to experience the joy of giving. On one hand these glorious feats fill us with pride and on the other hand they remind us of the need to be perseverant and consistent. I sincerely hope that this quest for excellence will forever be our driving force.
