Secondary School Trips
As a part of the total learning experience, Trips Week provides immersive travel experiences for high school students. The focus of Trips Week is for students to explore connections between their learning and the world around them. It provides opportunities for the students to grow and develop lasting bonds. It aims to:
nurture a sense of independence and confidence
develop and support the students intellectual curiosity
nurture talents beyond the traditional classroom
provide life-changing experiences and memories
The students get an opportunity to explore India and immerse themselves in its diverse culture, food and heritage. Trips Week is also a time for students to take a break from academics, connect with their hobbies and spend quality time with their peers and teachers. Being amidst nature, the students return rejuvenated, after a lot of fun and adventure.
In the 2019-2020 academic year, the students got an opportunity to visit Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Jaipur, Rishikesh, Coorg , Pune and Mangalore, and Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand.
Here are a few details of some of the trips as narrated by the students and the teachers.
This trip covered three places in Northern India - Rishikesh, Jim Corbett National Park and New Delhi. There were fifty-two M4 (Grade 9) and M5 (Grade 10) students accompanied by six teacher chaperones. After flying into Dehradun Airport, we travelled by minibuses for 45 kms along narrow mountainous roads to our first stop.
The D1 (Grade 11) students visited the Andaman Islands, the beautiful beach destination of India. They first visited Port Blair, which is the capital of the Andamans. Then they visited the historic Cellular Jail and enjoyed a poignant sound and light show and learnt about India’s heroic freedom struggle.
