Study Trips

Grade V – Recreation – Reading Under the Tree

October 11, 2017

The visit to the Anna Centenary Library was filled with fun, excitement and joy. The huge library building which greeted us kindled our curiosity to know more about the library. Our first stop was at the Braille section where the librarian explained the facts about the Braille language. We got an opportunity to touch the Braille boards for the first one. Next we went to the children’s section. Toy birds, parrots, cute monkeys and a white sloth bear on a huge realistic tree was the centre of attraction. We were told about the various facilities available at the library like the old wooden manuscripts written in various languages. We were also given books to read and we enjoyed reading it under the tree.

 A visit to the Irula Community – Grade XI and XII

The Sociology and Psychology students of grade XI and XII visited the Irula community at Annai Sathya Nagar, Thirukazhakundram. The children had an insight into the Tribes of India and the Bonded Labour System. Children were also given an opportunity to interact with the tribes to get to know about their culture, lifestyle, and problems.

The trip was enriching and interesting and we learned about the Irula culture and their lifestyle. It provided us with an opportunity to mingle with people about whom we had only read about in text books. Through our interaction with the tribals, we learned the value that each day must be lived to the fullest before wondering about the next and we must cherish what we have.

Silence is Golden – Grade V

Our trip to Ramakrishna Mutt was very ‘quiet’. First we went to the meditation hall where we sat in meditation for some time. It relaxed our body and minds, then we were shown a power point presentation on ‘Silence’. The Swamiji spoke to us on the value of silence and respecting others. All of us felt that sitting quietly for some time is not so difficult.

Little Moments, Big Memories – Grade II

At the Adyar Poonga, we saw herbs, shrubs, climbers, creepers and trees. We also saw fish, terrapin and tortoise. we held a terrapin and a tortoise and were excited. We saw a clipping on keeping the earth clean. We saw so many flowers like lily, lotus, aloe vera, rose and hibiscus. We saw a honey bee busy taking honey from the flower, going buzz buzz….. After that we played hide and seek with my Acharyas and friends. We saw a fish jumping all around the water. We enjoyed the field trip. Thank you Acharyas!

Catch the Falling Stars – Grade III

Children were transported to space during the visit to the Birla Planetarium. The planets, stars, black holes, galaxies, space showers and meteorites gave them hands-on learning experience. They were amazed and thrilled to watch a 3D show and understand that ice rocks float around Saturn and the earth is made up of gases.

Fun with Numbers – Grade XI

6 students of grade XI attended the CMI workshop, where they explored topics beyond the text book. The hands on experience widened their perspective on Mathematics and its link to other subjects.
