Class 4 visits School eco park

On 9th February 2024, class 4 students of The Indian School-Second Shift embarked on a fun-filled and educational journey to explore the captivating world of a farm. Led by their enthusiastic teachers the students visited the School eco park where lush green fields stretched endlessly under the vast expanse of the sky. The aim of the excursion was to be introduced to rural life and a first-hand knowledge of the processes that sustain our food supply.

Upon arrival at the park, we were greeted by the warm hospitality of the farm hands, who showed us around enthusiastically. Our visit included a series of engaging activities. We were told about the methods employed, the importance of soil health, irrigation and pest management.

Getting a hands'-on experience of sowing  seeds to harvesting ready vegetables, the students gained profound appreciation for the labour-intensive nature of farming. Eager to stretch their legs and immerse in the natural beauty of the surroundings, the children embarked on leisurely nature walks along scenic trails. These sparked lively discussions among the students and teachers, fostering a sense of environmental responsibility.

Students witnessed an array of life sized science models, including the structure of an atom and a rotatory motor system. These installations were a speaking lesson in the fundamental principles od science.

Besides this, the students gleefully navigated the mazes, scaled the climbing walls and slid down the slides, revelling in the joy of uninhibited play.

The excursion itinerary was brimming with delightful activities tailored to every interest. To foster teamwork and cooperation, we engaged in a series of interactive games and challenges. The communal spirit of sharing food fostered a sense of camaraderie and unity among classmates and teachers alike. This was an enriching educational experience, yielding several key learning outcomes.

The excursion to the farm was a resounding success, fostering a deeper connection to food that sustains us all. We returned to our classrooms inspired to advocate for a more sustainable future. We also carrried back bunches of freshly picked produce for our families to enjoy at home.
