Excursion to Binsar and Nainital (Classes VI-VIII)
Maxfort School, Pitampura organized a trip to Binsar and Nainital on 2nd January, 2018 for classes VI-VIII. Our Principal Ma’am, Ms. Mona Lakhanpal gave various guidelines to the students to have a safe journey. It was a trip of 4 days and 3 nights. Students boarded the bus at night on 2nd January.
These trips are tailor made to facilitate the students to know and understand the real, multicultural world.The school discreetly organizes educational trips to strategically and historically important places and facilitates for students to reach out for information beyond the text books. It was a fun filled trip away from the school and home where students had the opportunity to learn in a totally different environment. They learnt to look after themselves and their belongings away from the supervision of their parents. They learnt to adjust themselves in the company of their facilitators and friends. They learnt to live out off a shell, being on the move.
A visit to the Binsar Wildlife Sanctuary was something they all looked forward to. Trekking to Zero Point, the highest point in the sanctuary was a breathtaking experience for them. Though due to the weather they could only catch a glimpse of few barking deer and a few birds. Also the children went to the famous temples of Binsar where the environment was full of sanctity. Nainital and its picturesque surroundings recharged the students. Children enjoyed the trip throughout and learned several things like Leadership, importance of time schedule, co-ordination between two or more people etc. The Students came back from the trip fully refreshed and recharged. Parents and students extended their thanks and were grateful to the School Principal Ms. Mona Lakhanpal for organizing such excursions and for her unwavering support and guidance.
The students bought some souvenirs for their family and friends back home. The trip was enjoyed immensely by all and the students came back to Delhi taking back numerous pleasurable memories to cherish forever. These trips are meticulously planned to add fun and enthusiasm during vacation period. These trips also extend a much needed break from the hectic daily schedule and an opportunity for the facilitators and learners to bond with each other.
