Our Place - grades PS - 2 field trip

The PreSchoolers through grade 2 blasted off on their ‘Our Place’ field trip by first visiting “Mercy Home’. This was the first time the students had been there to interact with the elderly and bring smiles to their faces. Next we went to the ‘Polio Home’ where they saw the physically handicapped children striving to improve on their skills. They also learnt how to make paper bags and made some on their own. On the third day, we went to the Palani Hills Conservation Council where they saw how plants and saplings are grown and also a busy bee hive. Later we went to the Horticultural Research Station where they saw a herbal garden, a greenhouse and some rare fruits which we do not see ordinarily in Kodaikanal. A trip to Bryant Park on the last day ended it all when the children had fun and relaxed.

The children had an enriching and learning experience by going on a “field trip” and being exposed to the richness and wonders of our local places!!
