Community Cohesion


The LIA has always promoted respect for people belonging to other faiths and culture. People who have visited the school and spoken freely to many students and staff have highly praised the school for promoting universal values of respect and tolerance for all. We are pleased that the school continues to work effectively with the local community. We have welcomed volunteers from the community to work with children in the school and appreciate the help our parents provide during educational visits and during many other activities within the school. We have had many visitors from different professions to help enrich children’s learning experience. We have had visits from dentists, opticians, policemen, etc. We are proud of our children’s caring attitude and their commitment to fund raising activities for the school and for other charitable organisations. The school has continued to organise a series of educational visits for children in order to enrich and enhance their learning.
