Far from the potholes of the Abids road, but not from its maddening crowd, Little Flower is one school facing massive traffic problems. The off time buzzes with auto rickshaws, cars and pedestrains all juggling their bodies to keep pace with the fleeing horde of school children. This melee is somewhat co-ordinated by a very harrassed policeman, who unfortunately had taken to policing to escape being a school teacher.
The premise too titters with children staying back for a round of gossiping or the film screening that takes place every weekend. From gangly boys to bespectacled girls, Little Flower High School glows with high, liberated spirit. One of the city's premier schools for a long time, LFHS has always produced amongst the best of students. The curriculum, based on the AP State Board, does not sit too heavy on these young shoulders, and they get enough time and energy to participate in extra-curricular and sports activities.
Cricket, basketball, volleyball, table tennis and hand-ball, are some of the games that the students can try their hands at, in addition to participating in the NCC activities. Little Flower also has several clubs and associations, like a science club, a computer club, a fine arts club, an environment club, and a music and dance club. With a well-stocked library, a fully equipped auditorium and a spacious playground, the school takes care of both the physical and the mental development of your child.
The admissions are through an entrance test, except for the LKG, where a selection committee admits students through an interview with the child and the parents. With Rs. 15,000 as admission fee, Rs. 300 as monthly fee and Rs. 600 per term in addition, the school attracts a lot of budget-sensitive yet aspiring parents.
LFHS is part of the brotherhood that also runs All Saints High School
, St. Paul's High School
