Educational Excursion: Bharat Darshan Park
Delhi, October 27, 2022: An educational excursion to Bharat Darshan Park, Punjabi Bagh, was organised for the students of Class V on 27 September 2022 and for Class IV on 28 September 2022. This wonderfully amazing park is an initiative by Delhi Municipal Corporation in which 22 structures- 1 Banyan tree and 21 historical & religious places have been erected. These include the Qutub Minar, Taj Mahal, Charminar, Gateway of India, Konark Temple, Nalanda Ruins, Meenakshi Temple and many more. 350 tonnes of waste material which included electric poles, old cars, spare parts of trucks, pipes and other scraps were used to construct the replicas of the monuments.
It is a perfect example of ‘Kachre Se Kanchan’ as quoted by Mr. Amit Shah, Union Home Minister, during the inauguration ceremony on 25 December 2021. It was a good learning experience for the students who were awestruck on seeing so many famous monuments under one roof.
Visit To Rail Museum
Delhi, September 27, 2022: The students of Class II and III along with the teachers visited the National Rail Museum on 27th September and 28th September 2022 as an Educational Excursion. The students were all highly excited and charged for the excursion as it was their first excursion after the pandemic. Taking all the necessary precautions, the visit proved very informative for the students.
They witnessed the engines that dated back to the 19th Century like the Patiala State Monorail, the Fairy Queen, Fireless Engines, the Saloon Cars and many more. They had a fun-filled ride on the toy train. The students also saw the timeline where the evolution and discoveries in the field of rails and trains were showcased. After their visit, the students were given a worksheet to do based on their visit. Such educational excursions help the students to learn beyond their Classrooms.
