“The best education you’ll ever get is by travelling. Nothing teaches you more than exploring the world and accumulating experiences.”-Mark Patterson
The word excursion evokes a feeling of excitement and a sense of exhilaration. This year the students of Grades I & II went to ‘Never Enuf Garden Railway’ Manesar, for their annual excursion. The trip aimed at providing the learners an experience outside the school environment and allowed them to observe new things in a completely different setting. ‘Never Enuf’ is the only garden railway in North India brought to life by Mr. Aadesh, a train-modelling enthusiast who has installed his creations in a Lilliput’s world, straight out of a picture book. The exuberant children, bubbling with excitement, got a close experience of a miniature world in an enchanting display of trains, motor-controlled boats and cars in their own small world of houses, industries, and bridges, perfectly syncing with the theme for this month- ‘Transport’ and SDG 9-‘Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure’. Apart from admiring the miniature rail world, the young ‘Suncitizens’ also learnt about ticket windows, signals, railway crossings and station masters. The children were made aware of, how to deal with emergency situations involving fire escapes and more. The enthralling trip was made even more enjoyable with the scrumptious food, served at the venue. The children prepared DIY crafts and carried them home as souvenirs for their parents.
