    The lessons in the school arranged were very enjoyable

    Can I correct the sentence in the following ways (especially the 2nd one)?

    - The lessons the school arranged were very enjoyable.
    - The lessons that/which the school arranged were very enjoyable.
    - The lessons that/which were arranged by the school were very enjoyable.

    Thanks

    I think 'that/which were' can simply be omitted.
    I am not a teacher.

    That's what the OP did in sentence 1. Mike already said all three were OK.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    What the OP did in #1 is different from what I did in #3.

    1. The lessons the school arranged were very enjoyable.
    3. The lessons arranged by the school were very enjoyable.
