Learning takes place through various ways and means
wherein excursions play a pivotal role.
A team of 149 students escorted by Mr. Upendra Pandey , Ms.Annama Jacob and 13 other teachers from the Secondary Wing went to Jim Corbett and Ranikhet from 16th March, 2017 to 19th March, 2017.
It was a rejuvenating experience for the students as the trip offered an array of activities like jungle safari, Burma bridge, flying fox, ladder climbing, village walk, rock climbing and rappelling. In the evening, students enjoyed dancing around the bonfire.
They also visited the Ranikhet Museum, Shawl Factory, Ranikhet Baazar and Golf Course.
With the aim of providing hands on experience to the students, DPSG organised an educational trip to Gopal Jee Dairy, Hapur Road Pilakhua on 21st January, 2017 for students of class IX. The students got an opportunity to see the State of Art of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and Milk Packaging and Processing through this visit. It was a wonderful and interactive visit wherein the students gained insight into the production processes and its products.
A team of 32 students from Secondary Wing escorted by Mr. Upendra Pandey, Md. Aslam Ansari, Ms. Shalini Sharma and Ms. Aman Malia went to Ranikhet from 28th March, 2016 to 31st March, 2016. It was an adventurous trip which offered many activities like village walk, slithering, rock climbing, rappelling, bon fire dance and various team building activities. The students participated in all these activities with zeal and enthusiasm. These activities inculcated the spirit of teamwork amongst the students and gave them the experience which will be a lifetime memory for them. The students visited the Ranikhet museum and shawl factory as well as enjoyed shopping at the local market. The stay at the resort helped them to enhance their time management, organizational and social skills.
It’s often said ‘journeys are more fun than the real destinations’, but our destination i.e. Najafgarh village, Haryana, proved to be more fun filled than the journey. The trip to this place was organized by the school on 14th March, 2015 to provide the students the much needed break from regular studies.
It was a rejuvenating experience with loads of adventure and excitement for the students as well as the teachers since the place was a hub of activities. The excitement began the moment the buses left the school premises. As soon as they reached the spot, the children were divided into groups and involved in many adventure sports activities including rope climbing, river crossing, rappelling, flying fox and Burma bridge and various other guided activities. They enjoyed the rides on tractors, bullock carts and camels.
The children were served delicious and healthy food during the day which they relished a lot.
All together it was a memorable day.
