School trips are essential in expanding a student’s worldview. They help improve their critical thinking skills and help them learn about the local culture while protecting historical heritage and raising awareness among young children. A greater bond between students and teachers is formed and lifelong memories are made. Educational trips turn students into proactive and experiential learners.
The students of grade 9 went on a heritage trip from the 24th to the 28th of September to Delhi, Vrindavan and Jaipur. Some of the places they visited in Delhi were India Gate, the War Memorial and the Rashtrapati Bhavan. The highlight of the Delhi trip was the visit to the Akshardham Temple, the boat ride and the amazing light show.
In Vrindavan, they visited the Govardan Hill, Kaliya Ghat, Mathura and other places associated with Lord Krishna. The boat ride on the Yamuna river and placing the lit diyas in the water was truly an incredible experience for the students.
The Amer Fort, Jal Mahal and the City Palace were some of the places that they visited in Jaipur. Dinner at Choki Dhani was a unique experience of the rich culture and the amazing cuisine Jaipur is famous for.
Exploring the rich cultural heritage of our country with friends, the late night talking sessions with them, the comfortable journey and the luxurious hotels they stayed in are things that they will always cherish and treasure.
