Excursion To Sawai Madhopur (Ranthambhore)-Jaipur (Classes IV-V)
We at Maxfort School, Pitampura believe in giving learning beyond the classroom. Here students learn it by living it, when they experience first hand, the very best historic, cultural and natural sights. Keeping this in mind, an educational trip was organized for classes IV –V to the Ranthambhore & Jaipur from 3rd January to 7th January 2018. The students were taken to Ranthambhore fort to catch the historical & architectural glimpse. The view of the Jungle from the top of the Ranthambore Fort was truly captivating. Then we visited the “Trinetra Ganesh Temple” located in Ranthambhore fort. The temple itself is mystifying as it is said the idol emerged from the rocks on its own and is the only idol of Lord Ganesha which has three eyes and is rightfully called the Trinetra Ganesha.
After the temple, we began with an adventurous safari to the Ranthambhore National Park. Students were accompanied by a guide who promised for a fair chance of spotting a tiger as Ranthambore offers some of the finest opportunities for sighting the magnificent tiger in the wild. Visiting this national park helped the learners to understand that National parks safeguard these habitats, and provide a safe space for wildlife to breed and survive. Without national parks certain animal species are at greater risk of becoming extinct.
In the evening, there was visit to the famous Hamir fort and Yogi Mahal. It helped the learners to enhance their knowledge about the historical background of these famous forts. During their visit, they also got the opportunity to see live performances by Rajasthani folk musicians and dancers. The simple yet expressive dances of Rajasthan were enjoyed by one and all.
On the third and final day was the trip to the citadels of Jaipur that have allured visitors from all across the world for centuries. Students started their day by visiting the famous Amer fort that is known to serve as the capital city of Kachchwaha clan of Rajputs before the advent of Jaipur. This beautifully made fort has a number of stunning palaces to fascinate its visitors. The palace that attracted us the most was the dazzling Sheesh Mahal.
This trip was an opportunity for the students to build positive attitude which subsequently lead to improvement in achievement and motivation in all area- including academic. It helped the students to develop better understanding of India’s rich heritage culuture.
