The Lawrence School, Sanawar, in collaboration with Aspire, will kickstart the second edition of The Sanawar Leadership Programme (TSLP), comprising a 10-day summer camp for 10-14 year old “young leaders” on their campus in Kasauli hills.

The programme will run from June 19 to 28 and is open to middle school students from across the country. The school says the endeavour is to “open its campus to the nation in order to gift its legacy of creating national leaders, beyond the students who attend the co-ed boarding between Grades 5 and 12”.

The camp, it claims, will help students understand and practice “enlightened leadership, develop self-awareness, grow in confidence, and evolve intellectually as well as emotionally through experiential learning”.

According to Vinay Pande, Headmaster of the school, “The Lawrence School, Sanawar, understands leadership intimately. In 2013, we became the first school to send a team of students to successfully climb Mount Everest.”

Amit Bhatia, global CEO of London-headquartered The Global Steering Group for Impact Investment or GSG and formerly, founder of McKinsey Knowledge Centre, commented, “Our children are our future leaders. They can seize their and our futures if we nurture, groom and invest in them. Every year, I take a fortnight away from work to invest in this shared future. It’s a privilege to be part of TSLP. ”

Triansha Tandan, Chief Learning and Development Officer at Aspire, who will lead TSLP, observed, “For six years, our Leadership Programmes have created a real impact in the hearts and minds of students. We connect with students at a deep personal level, enable them to learn about their inner selves, practice decision-making, and evolve as powerful and values-based leaders.”

The programme will feature two TiE-Aspire young achievers: Jamuna Boro, an international boxer who grew up in a challenging environment in her Assam village, and Vidya Y, a Bengaluru academician completely blind from birth. She was the first blind student to take a Computer Science major in Christ University.
