Apeejay Svran Global School students enjoy the Himachali winds

Students of classes 9-12 visit Himachal Pradesh on a three-day excursion trip



Summer vacations are incomplete without an excursion trip with one’s schoolmates and teachers. Everyone has been a student once and so, one will agree that an excursion trip is a way to provide every student with real-world experiences. It teaches students to function in a group as well as help them imbibe important life lessons.  

To ensure the holistic development of the students, Apeejay Svran Global School, Faridabad organised an educational excursion trip to Himachal Pradesh. Students from classes 9-12 under the supervision of three teachers from the school visited the hill stations of Chail, Kufri and Shimla. 

After enjoying an evening’s rest in the beautiful weather of Chail on the first day, the students participated in several adventure activities like commando crawl, commando net, rope climbing, double rope bridge, monkey crawl and burma bridge. Students understood the importance of team building exercises as they participated in activities such as tug of war and web of life.

Students went to Kufri the following day and visited Indira Holiday Home and Himalayan Wildlife Zoo where they witnessed different species of wildlife and vegetation. In the evening, the students explored the hill station by trekking to the famous Shiv temple near the local village. Students thoroughly enjoyed the 3 km trek and experienced the authentic spirit of Himachal Pradesh in the dense forest of pine trees. On the way back, a treasure hunt activity was arranged for the students in which they participated with a lot of enthusiasm.

“Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit. The type of memories that educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods. The trip brought out the best in students as they experienced being self-dependent and at the same time, becoming a team player. Students are back with lots of learning and fun filled memories.”
