Lalaji Memorial Omega International School Chennai, set in a serene and green 22 acre campus, provides a unique environment for both day-scholars and boarders. We are one of the few schools in Chennai to offer a wide range of national and international curricula, all in one campus.

  • Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE)
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP)
  • Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE)
  • National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS)

Our Value Based Spiritual Education and Life Skills Activities programs are, together, the foundation on which the children’s education is built. The school places a lot of emphasis on Humanities and Arts and Crafts. The school actively promotes many sports and games and offers coaching programs in quite a few of them; athletics, football and cricket, for example. Our students regularly participate at the District and State level tournaments and have been to the Nationals in both girls and boys soccer. A few of our boys are now playing at the junior level of ISL with the Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC. We also own Brindavan CC, a first division club affiliated to KDCA, so that we may offer our boys exposure to the district and state cricket programs.

Innovators & Communicators

Students are encouraged to showcase their innate thinking and creative abilities. The research and analyses undertaken for their Extended Essays is a true test of their commitment to make a difference. They are given ample opportunities and provided with the resources they need to explore their research interests. Students have initiated, and now manage, specialised clubs including Robotics & Astronomy among others.

  • Using our laboratories, students are able to provide exhaustive analysis on imaginative topics. Examples include researching a solar cell's current output and learning the fact that it is dependent on the amount of Fraunhofer diffraction through a single rectangular slit, and determining the effectiveness of Fusarium fungal isolates in controlling the growth of common weeds in soil.
  • Similarly, students who wanted to understand the local environment around the school were able to test the waste water from an adjoining canal, to understand its composition, so as to make decisions on how to treat it. As a consequence, the once derelict canal is now becoming a sustainable ecosystem with many indigenous species of flora and fauna.
  • Most recently, the students have initiated an apiary program and have placed ten bee hives along the banks of this canal to encourage pollination. This project is part of the school’s initiative with UN Academic Impact.
  • Students have initiated a Youth Exchange Program in collaboration with a delegation from Sri Lanka to promote Peace & Partnerships beyond Boundaries.
  • Students regularly participate in national and international events and competitions; most recently in The World Scholar's Cup. Two teams of our students finished as the Second & Fifth Best Teams respectively in the Global round at Kuala Lumpur, and have qualified for the Tournament of Champions at Yale University.

Resources

  • The IBDP team comprises of well trained and dedicated facilitators, who ably guide each student through the demanding requirements of the program. We regularly engage with subject matter experts to further enhance the students' knowledge and awareness. Our Facilitators periodically attend IB Qualified Professional Development training programs.
  • Our library is stocked with around 32,000 books, apart from a collection of audio and e-books and numerous IB authorized journals. Students have access to our museum exhibits and our pictorial biodiversity record of over 2000 different reptiles, insects, amphibians and birds. We are one of the first schools in the region to set up a Government initiated Incubation Centre - the Atal Tinkering Lab. Our STEM subject labs on campus include tools like Vernier Labquest, Phase contrast Microscopes and 3D Printer.
  • We have one of the largest faculties in Fine Arts, Performing Arts & Visual Arts.
  • In the fine arts program, students are exposed to drawing and sketching, painting on a variety of media, clay and papier mache modelling, pottery and firing of models, and print making and etching. Students from local colleges visit our facilities to train in print making etc.
  • The performing arts program offers training in classical and contemporary music and instruments, drama and mime, and various dance forms.
  • Through the BridgeU University and Career Guidance platform, students get to interact directly with University representatives from US, Europe & UK. These initiatives, combined with their excellent performance, have seen our students go to prestigious Universities such as Imperial College, London, University of Cambridge, Brown University, University of Texas at Austin, University of California, Berkley, KU Leuwen University, Belgium, to name a few.

Creativity, Activity & Service

Our students are actively engaged in a variety of social integration programs:

  • Students collaborate with a reputed Cancer Speciality Hospital to create awareness and provide counselling services on overcoming pain in a holistic manner. Students also pledge their support to raise awareness about Cancer through the Terry Fox Runs & other Marathons.
  • Our school has the unique distinction of being the only institution from India to participate in the UN Student Leadership Conferences on Development for the last seven years, and have also been endowed with the responsibility of identifying topics of global significance for the conference.
  • Students engage in collaborative projects with "Habitat for Humanity" to identify and elevate the living standards of the downtrodden by providing them basic shelter needs. Students also work together with "The Gerry Martin Project" to learn essential life skills on conservation and ecology.
  • Students organize and manage "Kalanjali" - an annual event to showcase India's rich heritage in the Performing Arts. This event, comprising of an annual workshop and concert, usually held at a premium location in the city, is completely managed by students, and gives them event management skills beyond anything that they would normally receive at any school.
  • Students operate the school's paper recycling plant, to convert waste paper generated on campus into modern office stationery & souvenirs.
  • Students are actively involved in social empowerment programs such as the International Award for Young People.
