TRIP TO BLUE WORLD
Students of Pre primary and Classes I to VIII were taken to the Blue World Water Park on 31st July and 1st August, 2019 for an entertainment trip. The students were escorted by their teachers and support staff under the guidance of Principal and Headmistress Ma’am. The students enjoyed various rides including splash pool in the water park. It was fun filled day, where students enjoyed with their friends and relaxed after a hectic examination schedule. The water slides were amazing and the humongous wave pool tested their endurance and agility. Students were provided with a lot of refreshments along with a sumptuous lunch in the Blue World. The day ended with a lot of beautiful memories for the students.
EXCURSION TO MOUNT ABU
The students of class XII, pursuing Humanities went for an excursion to Mt.Abu from the 21st to 26th of July.
After a gruelling yet fun- filled overnight journey by train, they were more than elated to watch the train halt at the station; the simple thought of grabbing an opportunity to be awash with fresh air and straighten their backs exhilarated their somewhat doused spirits.
On the first day, they went for boating on the Nakki Lake.
On the second day, they climbed the highest peak of the Aravallis- Guru Shikhar(5650 ft.) and also offered prayers to lord Shiva in the AchleshwarMahadevMandir. They also trekked in the ruins of the Achalgarh fort, claiming all the discernible nooks and corners.
The next day also was extremely eventful. In the morning they visited Dilwara temple- an epitome of exquisitely carved boulders of marble-and a local Gurudwara. In the evening. They visited the sunset point and ended the day with a close view of the fading sun. On the concluding day, they trekked through the wild green mazes of Abu to reach the humongous Toad Rock. After spending a couple of hours revelling in the cool breeze, they headed towards the railway station and boarded the train to Kanpur.
The school had organised a trip to Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur. The students from ClassesVIII to Class XII participated in the trip. A group of eighteen students and two teachers left for Kuala Lumpur from Delhi on 25th March 2019.
Reached Kuala Lumpur at around 2:30 in the afternoon. After the immigration formality we checked into the hotel. On our way to the hotel we passed through the well planned Cyber City. That day we rested in the hotel and visited the nearby local market.
We boarded a bus to see the Batu caves. Batu Caves are located approximately 11 kilometres to the north of Kuala Lumpur. This 100-year-old temple features idols and statues erected inside the main caves and around it. From there we moved towards the Genting Highland. Genting Highlands was founded by Lim Goh Tong, who arrived at the shores of Malaysia from Fujian, in 1937. In the middle of 1971, Genting Highlands opened for business – the first Prime Minister of Malaysia Tunku Abdul Rahman. Today, Genting Highlands is one of the most popular highland tourist destinations in Malaysia, attracting visitors from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore and all over the world. We had a sumptuous buffet lunch at the coffee terrace. It included Malay food, Chinese food, Indian food, French food and many more.
Students visited the Sunway Lagoon Theme Park. The theme park had over 90 attractions spread across 88 acres Sunway Lagoon provides the ultimate theme park experience in 6 adventure zones — Water Park, Amusement Park, Wildlife Park, Extreme Park, Scream Park & Nickelodeon Lost Lagoon– Asia’s 1st Nickelodeon Themed Land.
We had a full day city tour of Kuala Lumpur. We first stopped at Istana Negara- the official residence of the monarch of Malaysia. We drove through the botanical garden. This garden houses a wide variety of flora and fauna. It even has some official complexes in it. We visited the Harriston Chocolate Boutique – there students learned how chocolate beans are converted into creamy chocolate. After Lunch we visited the two most iconic buildings of Malaysia the Petronas Tower and the KL Tower. Soaring to a height of 451.9 metres, the 88-storey twin structure is Kuala Lumpur’s crown jewel. The next stop was the KL tower. The KL Tower has become the symbol of KL, and you can spot it from anywhere in the city, as it is impressively 421 m tall. From the top, you have the best view of the KL skyline! Although the famous Petronas Towers is a taller building (451.9 m tall), the KL Tower gives you a higher viewpoint. KL Tower has the record of the tallest freestanding tower in the whole of Southeast Asia, and the seventh tallest in the world. It took eleven years to be built and was completed in 1995. We went up to the indoor Observation Deck at KL Tower, 276 m above the ground. The Observation Deck is an indoor deck with huge glass windows, located at 276 m above ground in the KL Tower. It is not as cool as the Sky Deck, but you still get a great view of Kuala Lumpur. We went to the China Town a small local market for shopping. There the students bought some souvenirs.
We visited Putrajaya which is Malaysia’s third and latest Federal Territory. Built on an expansive marshland and former oil palm estate in Selangor, the city spans an area of almost 5,000 hectares and lies 25 km from Kuala Lumpur. Putrajaya takes over the administrative functions of the capital city Kuala Lumpur and is a part of the Multimedia Super Corridor project of the Malaysian government.
We visited the Barjaya Square – a shopping mall, and at a short distance from it on the opposite side is the Electronic Mall – this mall has hundreds of shops selling electronic items. It’s a treat for gadget freaks.
On the same day we took our flight back to India. With a lot of sweet memories.
The students of Pre-Primary and Primary went to places of worship on 18th and 21st Jan’19. The purpose of the tour was to make them understand the beauty of “Unity in diversity” and expose them to different forms of spiritual expressions.
The children were really excited for the trip since this experience was altogether new for them. The calm and serene atmosphere of the Church and grandeur of the Gurudwara filled them with renewed energy. Through this trip, they learnt the importance of worship, religion and symbols of religious expressions.
This is how we believe in the holistic development of the students and educational trips are an integral part of the curriculum.
You cannot believe in God,
Until you believe in yourself.
The students of Classes XI-XII, pursuing Humanities went for a two day excursion to Orchha and Jhansi on 2-3 November.
They visited the Orchha Palace which lodges a number of colossal palaces and temples, the ravishing ‘chatries’ or cenotaphs on the bank of Betwa River where relics of 14 Bundela rulers lay buried. The light and sound show wherein the history of Orchha was told and impeccable light and sound effects were applied to accentuate its essence. The Fort of Jhansi was visited on the next day where new stories about Rani Laxmibai mingled with the old ones were told to the students. Thus owing to the amount of historical and geographical significance these two places majestically hold, they were perfect for gaining knowledge. The awe-inspiring architecture of these places comprising robust monuments, exquisite carvings and an architectural planning nonpareil, took everyone by surprise
EVS and EVA students of class IX, X & XI visited Chandra Shekhar Azad University (CSA University) on 15th October, 2018 along with Mrs. Sudha Singh and Mrs. M. Bhattacharya.
It was an informative experience for the students and teachers too. They had an opportunity to observe the following:-
- Horticultural Nursery which includes three types of houses according to the seasons (Poly House, Green House & Glass House)
- Different varieties of trees like Lichi, Mango, Arjun, Amla and Turmeric plants.
- A fair which comprised –

- They also visited the stalls of
- Pumping machine
- Eco friendly toilets and septic tanks
- Solar panels
- Soil science department

A hush fell as soon as the movie screen lit up, followed by a collective “Ooh”. Field trips give children various experiences away from their regular school environment. Keeping this in mind, as a part of a recreational trip, on 28 th August 2018, the students of Pre- Primary and Primary were taken to Z square, Inox for a special screening of the movie “The Incredibles 2”. The objective behind this was not only to refresh the kids but also to entertain them. The kids had lots of fun and they thoroughly enjoyed the movie.
