The magic of an educational excursion isn’t just the subject. It is about the break in routine and adventure that opens up children’s minds to new things.

And, these experiences go beyond reading about concepts in the books. Through the visits, students are able to witness and participate in different activities. They gain a comprehensive perspective about the world when introduced to new situations.

To inculcate experiential learning through observation via outdoor activities, 96 students of class nursery from Apeejay School, Noida, visited a Mother Dairy store and a fire station. The kindergarten students from the school spent time in a supermarket.  

In the fire station, the tiny tots were briefed by the officer on how to contact the concerned authorities in case of an emergency. They were taught about ways which can be used for dousing the fire i.e. covering the area with a blanket, or putting sand over the area, etc. A demonstration drill was also conducted to explain the process of fire elimination in detail.

At Mother Dairy, students got an opportunity to learn more about the process of obtaining products of daily needs. The kindergarten students were introduced to different domains and sections in the grocery store. Further, they interacted with the store’s employees to increase general awareness.

The trip helped in enhancing the social and communication skills of students. They became aware about places that form an integral part of their neighbourhood community.

After the trip, students relished the snacks provided by the school. It was an enriching experience for them. The school’s Principal, Mr. AK Sharma emphasised upon the need to develop students’ observation skills and provide them exposure.

The Primary in-charge of the school, Ms. Smriti Samuel was glad to facilitate the trip. She felt happy to see the faces of these tiny sparks. Ms. Samuel reiterated, “Children need to come out of their shells in order to interact with their immediate environment.”
