Even a small child can begin to learn to care for the needs of another living being. Whether helping to empty a cup of dry kibble into the rabbit's bowl, or filling the Budgerigar's water bottle, it is never too early to start teaching kids proper animal care. Of course, elders must monitor all pet care that the child carries. LIS organized a special assembly on December 06th, 2017 for Pre- Primary section on the topic Pet Care. Furry, feathered, or finned friends offer kids much more than companionship. They help children to develop lifetime character traits like responsibility, compassion, empathy, accountability, resourcefulness and the ability to love unconditionally. It is important to teach children to care for the pet responsibly. Children should learn what their pet needs for health and happiness. They should understand the care and affection their pet requires. Pallavi Rajpurohit of Grade prep and Mrs.Payal (mentor) shared their love bond with their pets.

These nano garnets of Lucky International School have fantastically conveyed this significant message ‘Say Yes to Sports to be a fantastic academic performer!!
