An Exciting Field Trip to Surendrapuri, Nalgonda.

The students of primary classes 2, 3 & 4 of Chinmaya Vidyalaya went on a Field Trip to Surendrapuri on Nov 12, 2016 (Saturday).

My daughter (then in Std II) was too excited as she will be going on a long trip to Surendrapuri with her friends. The previous evening she quickly made preparations on her own like backpacking for the next day's field trip. I dumped few dry food stuffs in her backpack like biscuits, potato chips and sweet items too.

The next day, I got up early in the morning to prepare and pack breakfast and lunch box for my daughter's trip. The reporting time was 8:00 a.m. My daughter too got up early than usual and got ready for the trip. By the time we reached school, I could see, as always, parents waiting at the respective classrooms to see off their dear little ones. After a couple of minutes wait, there was prayer and meditation. The class teachers took the attendance and on announcement, took the children in lines to board the respective buses.

OMG! parents excitement and worry is much more than the excitement of the children. I could see parents giving precautions to their kids, asking them to close the windows of the bus, hold the rod / seat tight so that they don't fall and blaa blaa blaa.

As the children were getting into the buses, there were clicks by the over enthusiastic parents. Of course, I'm no exception.I too clicked few while the children were boarding the buses.
When everything was set and the respective class teachers too board the respective buses, the journey started. Parents waved their hands while the children in buses were too excited as they are going on long drive with their friends. And there the bus in which my daughter is sitting moved.
I think, it was around 9:00 a.m, the buses left the school. I was back home and finished my daily chores, all the day thinking of my little one. We reached the Vidyalaya premises by 5:30 p.m and saw some parents waiting to receive their children. As evening time is the rush hour, the buses reached the school late. The premises was crowded with eagerly waiting parents. The buses started reaching Vidyalaya premises one after the other and the parents rushed to the spot to receive their tired kids. By the time, my daughter was back to school, it was around 7:30 p.m.
I could see the happiness / satisfaction on the faces of the children. They too were eager to explain everything to their dear parents. On the whole, the primary class children (from Classes I to V) had a culturally enriching and exciting field trip to Surendrapuri near Nalgonda.

Back home, my daughter (and of course the other children too) refreshed herself, had early dinner than usual and went to bed early. She had a sound sleep and could be with wonderful dreams of the trip.

On Nov 14th, 2016, she had a memorable moments of Children's Day Celebs at Raj Bhavan meeting our State Governor Sri Narasimhan.

Benefits of School Field Trips

Well, a school field trip is always a welcome break for the children from their regular routine school life which is full of books and writing. They spend the day in a different learning environment. Field trips help them to learn to do things independently and carefully too. It gives them a different interactive experience.
