Field Trips / Excursions

Grade X in Hyderabad 

The tenth-grade students of CHSV went on their annual outbound trip to Hyderabad.

We spent our days doing adrenaline-pumping activities such as rock climbing, commando net, valley crossing, Burma bridge, rappelling and zip lining. The surge of excitement that pounded through us when we did these activities is not something we experience in our day-to-day lives. It was a refreshing and unique experience that none of us would have wanted to miss.

We went on a few treks as well. Some of these treks included seeing a monument in the end, for example the Golconda Fort, where we learned a great deal about its rich history. We also forged new bonds when we participated in numerous team-based activities.

The best thing about the trip was the fact that we got to spend more time with our friends.  The accompanying teachers also joined in the fun. Overall, everyone had a fantastic and joyous trip and the memories made will remain in our hearts forever.

 Grade XI – Adventure Cove, Hyderabad

For the class 11 outbound trip, we went to a camp near Hyderabad. It was a fun-filled trip. I can honestly say that it involved more exercise than I have done in quite some time. From the day that we arrived, until the day we left, our days were filled with a variety of activities. From zip-lining to a game of minesweeper, there were definitely no dull moments.

It wasn’t just activities though. We got a dose of history and scenery on our visit to the Salar Jung museum, Bonghir and Golconda  forts. We also learned quite a bit about saree weaving on our visit to Puttapakka, a weaving village. Our trip concluded with a visit to the Charminar, where we were allowed to shop to our hearts content. The walls of the shops were filled with colourful bangles and sparkling jewellery, beautiful statues and a whole variety of items. The boys went looking for board games and souvenirs of their interest. The whole experience, from the tiring bus journey to the fun activities and shopping, was amazing and I am grateful to my school teachers and classmates for this experience.

Grade XII Field Trip to Yelagiri 

In spite of their busy schedules, the students of class 12 visited Yelagiri as part of their outbound experience. Although there weren’t many of us on the trip, it was still one to cherish, as it was our last year of school. The trip lasted three days, all of which were memorable. The bus ride to the hills was enjoyable with music and games. After a number of hairpin bends, we finally reached our hotel. The rest of the day was spent playing somme team building activities.

The next day, we went on a 3 hour long trek through a trail about a kilometer away from our hotel. The climb upwards although steep was scenic and awe-inspiring. After returning to our hotel, we were off to an adventure sports park where there were various activities like zip lining, walking a Burma-bridge, zorbing, archery, and even driving an All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV)!

The last day at Yelagiri was spent playing games. The ride home was long but fun all the same. Yelagiri, you will definitely be missed!
