Laboratory Primary School

Introduction

Laboratory  Primary School for Out of School Children

Vice Chancellor, Lahore College for Women University, Dr. Sabiha Mansoor, announced the establishment of a Model Primary School on 14th August, 2013, to lead the country towards literacy, with reference to the letter from Government of the Punjab, No.D.S (S.I) 1-24/2013, dated: 7th August, 2013, about “Enrolment Emergency Campaign 2013”.

Vice Chancellor, Prof. Dr. Sabiha Mansoor with her team, on the Independence Day celebrations, further announced that LCWU would be a frontrunner in this literacy drive. In this regard, LCWU dedicated two ‘garage rooms’ for the laboratory primary school that would offer primary education to out of school children on campus in the surrounding area of the university.

The Institutes of Education, has developed the curriculum and school plan in collaboration with the institutes of Languages and Cultures, Design and Visual Arts, and the directorate of Faculty Development and Internationalization. The Punjab Textbook Board syllabus has been implemented in the formal school

LCWU is ready for the launch and would play its role to complement the vision of the Higher Education Department of the government of Punjab to ensure no child is out of school. The school at LCWU will be promoted to elementary and secondary school for underprivileged girls. These girls will be the future students of the university.

This small step of ‘Enrolment Emergency Campaign, 2013’ may prove to be a giant leap for the underprivileged, marginalized, out-of-school children by equipping them with basic education as a way forward for survival with dignity.
