Bonfires are an annual tradition for junior branches. Each branch has its own event and the students registered at that school attend with their family and friends. The event is an opportunity for students to take a brief break from schoolwork. It is also a chance for them and their parents to interact with teachers and school staff in an informal and social setting. Students and teachers often use this as an opportunity to discuss things that might be causing problems at school because everyone is in a good mood and willing to be more cooperative.
Concerts by famous musical bands are held annually. The bands may be local or even the school's own bands. All major branches put on an annual play every year, in Punjabi, Urdu or English. Plays like Andhera Ujala were screened on television channels whereas Khatra-e-Jaan which had a number of LGS participants also received favourable reviews across Lahore. The school's network has gone on educational trips to Lahore, all over Pakistan and to abroad countries including India, China, the United States of America, Uzbekistan, Greece, Spain, and Egypt.
