“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” Keeping this in mind, the school has planned its curriculum in such a manner that trips and excursions are its integral part. The school added feathers in its cap by organising a number of outstation trips, day picnics and educational trips, to facilitate young students to re-evaluate some of their beliefs, attitudes and assumptions, particularly around different cultures and their own beliefs in life.
An excursion is a trip by a group of students usually made for education, leisure or physical purposes.
The school has organised the following outbound trips in academic year 2018-19.

Educational trips are planned to take the children away from their normal environment. The purpose of these trips is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities.
Our School organized an educational visit to the National Museum, New Delhi for classes IXand X along with the faculty of Art Department. The theme of the visit was „Art‟ and „looking at art‟ from multiple perspectives like science, social studies, philosophy, history etc. The groups of students were divided into two groups and were taken to different galleries in the National Museum.
Thus, these trips and other outdoor activities form a vital part of the curriculum and always help in adding something more innovative to the educational learning of the children apart from their regular curriculum.
