Experiential learning has a great deal of importance in today’s learning. Children are taken on trips to places of importance and relevance to their topic of study.
Students from KG are taken on field trips at least once per term.
Our students regularly visit Agricultural college at Othakadai, Gandhi museum and AlagarKovil hills. Factories and farms are other places we visit. To build social consciousness, children meet with visually challenged students at Indian Association for Blind (IAB), Sundarrajanpatti and play with children with special needs at Special Needs Park at Thamaraithotti, Madurai at least once a year.
Children from Grade VI upwards are taken on a one-day trekking camp. Students enjoy the evening with campfire and stories in a rural setting followed by trekking on the following morning.
Over the past years, we have stayed at CESCI (Kadavur, Natham Road, Madurai), Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Mahirishi Ashram (Vellayampatti, Natham Road, Madurai) & Thapovan Resorts, Kodai hills. As part of these camps we have trekked Alagarkovil hills from multiple directions and Swarnabhoomi hills on New Natham Road.
Outbound camps help children appreciate nature and build their social consciousness.
