“A picnic is more than eating a meal; it is a pleasurable state of mind.”
It has been quite rightly said that the heart of education lies in education of the heart. A child's heart not only seeks knowledge but also yearns for fun and frolic as well as learning through experience of new and exciting things, places and people. Keeping in mind the overall development of the students, our school provides its students a rejuvenating break from their hectic and at times monotonous routines through excursions. The students of classes I-VIII went to Eco-Adventure Camp, Najafgarh for their annual class picnic. The students were overjoyed at the thought of a break for some adventure. Students excitedly explored the beautiful rural setting of the camp and the activities planned for them. They were given detailed instructions by the instructors regarding their conduct throughout the camp. The students were engaged in many activities like Rock climbing, Rappling, Stream Runner, Trekking, Gorilla Warfare, Giant Ladder, Burma Bridge, Camp Games etc. They enjoyed rides on camel, bullocks, and tractor and relished the scrumptious buffet. They also tried their hands-on the Potter’s Wheel, learnt spinning on a spinning wheel and grinding the flour in traditional way. The students enjoyed a lot when they gyrated on the stage and showcased their dancing talent.
It was a fruitful experience for the students since learning was incorporated with fun and entertainment. They thoroughly enjoyed this day with their peers, returning to the school with wonderful memories and a rejuvenated spirit. Overall, it was an outing that made the students confident, courageous and to a great extent assisted them to conquer their fears. It was indeed a wonderful day filled with fun and frolic for all.
