“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page “
Every student looks forward to the summer vacation. The students of classes V and VI of MRIS- Sector 14 were all the more excited as they were planned to go an excursion to Jim Corbett and Nainital. 125 students along with 16 teachers under the guidance of the Headmistress Dr. Shalini Bindra, reached school at 4.30 am to board the buses to proceed on a fun filled journey. The students were so excited that they did not even blink their eyes enroute. The buses echoed with the melodious songs, giggles and cheerful voices of the students.
They were warmly welcomed at Wood Castle Resort and were allotted rooms to freshen up to move for jungle safari after a sumptuous meal. It was an adventurous ride and for most of the students it was the first hand experience to see the animals and birds in their natural habitat. They saw a variety of rare and migratory birds. Some were lucky to observe the Yellow Throat Martin while the others were speechless to track the Tiger. The joy was visible in their eyes and talks. They also visited the Corbett Museum and the Gargiya temple.
This trip had other excitements too. The students danced to the times of their favourite singers, had fun games and enjoyed lavish food. They saw trees laden with mangoes and litchees. They also plucked raw mangoes. Next day they visited the Cave Garden at Nainital. The caves were full of adventure and required balance, presence of mind and team work to get through. As they strolled through the Mall Road at Nainital, they were enchanted to see the scenic beauty of the place. The Naini Lake looked very calm and quite and cool breeze swayed making the atmosphere pleasant. They also took the blessings of God almighty at Naina Devi temple. The students picked souvenirs to be taken back home for their loved ones. To be out of the protected shell of the family and to be on their own makes the children confident, social, sensitive and good decision makes too, which was indeed the purpose of this educational trip.
