Studies have shown that those who learn on a computer perform better academically than their peers, and the jobs of the future will demand computer literacy from just about everyone.

Geography is changing. It is an issue which is central to many of the stories that are in the news today and we do our best to reflect this in our subject matter.

Despite understanding the necessity of western language in our modern society, Lawrence Public Inter College also stresses the importance of pupils’ native language. Hindi can be particularly useful when explaining content deeply to students. In this way, we try to maximise the use of both English and Hindi in the classroom to maximise pupils’ learning and progress. Our skilful teachers bring the famous poems of Kabir and Rahim and the stories of Premchand and Mahadevi Verma to life and teach them in a way that helps students understand the depth of the content.
The study of history is essential to give future generations the strength to fight against injustice. It introduces us to democracy, individual freedoms and the fundamental values of life. As well as learning about their past and analysing historical events, this method of studying improves the mind of the students and their critical analytical skills, encouraging them to think and argue for themselves.
The subject teaches and encourages the students to think about how to live in society as well as how to be a responsible family member.

Humanities at Lawrence Homan P. I. College
The Arts (Humanities) Faculty is a very well developed part of the school, in which our teachers teach languages as well as social and applied subjects. Subjects taught include the following:
All teachers in this faculty are fully qualified and are approachable and keen to help the students.
The school library is well stocked with subject related books and an excellent literature section with books in both Hindi and English. We also have many religious books such as Vedas, Ramayan, Kuran and the Bible.
Education and Learning
This faculty is one in which the students are taught about the society in which they live in and morals about how they should live their lives. Our students study their own culture from a moral, social, religious, traditional, economic and environmental perspective.
This is theoretical in the classroom and applied outside the classroom by activities such as trips, dramas and surveys. Through these ways, our students can learn the art of living and they become more emotionally developed.
