  • TAKING TIME TO LIVE LIFE WILL ONLY INSPIRE YOUR WORK
  • EVERY EXPERIENCE HOLDS A GIFT FOR YOUR GROWTH AND AWAKENING

THE SAYING, “I HEAR AND I FORGET, I SEE AND I REMEMBER, I DO AND I UNDERSTAND”, PROVIDES THE BACKBONE TO THE THEORY OF RETAINING MORE INFORMATION WHEN VISUALLY EXPERIENCING ACTIVIES IN THE CHOOSEN ENVIRONMENT WHICH PROVIDES CULTURAL EXPERIENCE, ALLOWS FOR LIFE LONG MEMORIES TO MADE WITH THE FRIENDS

An Excursion is usually a brief pleasure trip. Schools are encouraged to adopt the practice of excursion because of its tendency to add reality to learning experiences which consequently enriches the courses of study and motivate the both teachers and students.

Furthermore, excursions give exciting educational experiences deeper then visits to places like zoos, nature centres, community agencies (like fire stations and hospitals), government agencies, local business, and museums increases the chances of learners retaining what is being taught in the classroom. Findings also reveal that children learn about different professions, ideas and opportunities when they travel outside their own neighbourhood which increases their desire to try new things owing to the interest in them.

Our school organize both educational trips, tours and fun tours, picnics as well. Here we get the opportunity to build a nice bond between teachers and students.

  • EDUCATIONAL TRIPS

Memories of school educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be fun bonding experience for everyone involved.

  • Reinforcement

The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.

  • Engagement

Teachers turns trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.

  • Socialization

Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of travelling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.

  • Exposure

Kids get to visit a place to which they have never been before. This can be particularly advantageous to students who are less fortunate and don’t have the opportunity to travel and they get rid from their fears as well.

  • Curiosity

Students who go on educational trips find that they want ton learn more about the subjects on which the trip focused.

  • Retention

The type of memories that educational trips create, helps children retain information for longer periods.

EDUCATIONAL TRIPS ARE IMPORTANT IN MANY WAYS:

Going on educational trip means more than simply leaving the school grounds.        Educational trips should always have a major educational element, but the impact of educational trips can extent much further. The importance of educational trips includes giving students the chance to build closer bonds with their classmates, experience new informal learning environments with new sights and enjoy a day away from the classroom. 

Educational trips can chance student’s perspective, give them variety in learning styles, classroom supplement, rewards and many more. It teaches students: professionalism, enhances sense of community and creates an interest in new things.

Consider a tour of a local factory, restaurant, bank, historical place that would require only transportation and meal cost to create an affordable education trip and valuable community relations between businesses and students, from which they get real-world experience, classroom inspiration where the student can touches, smells historical relics, ancient artifacts and original sources of text becomes motivated to learn more in depth when he/she returns to the classroom.
