Moving with purpose
‘Excursions provide constructive learning experiences.’ Keeping this in mind, the school organizes picnics and educational tours for students in every academic session. Through these excursions, students get the opportunity to explore their surroundings, broaden their knowledge spectrum beyond textbooks and enable them to think out of the box. Students go for day trips to adventure camps, cross cultural exchange programmes with Embassies, visits to National museums, planetarium, historical monuments and heritage walks in different cities, along with field trips to different industries and pleasure/outstation trips to wildlife sanctuaries or hill stations etc.
These experiences are long etched in students’ minds and provide valuable insights. All the excursions are meticulously planned to add fun and enthusiasm, as well as, give the teachers and students an opportunity to bond beyond school, away from the hectic schedules.
