An adventurous trip to Majestic Kedarkantha, Uttarkashi was organised for classes 10th to 12th, as we at Rabindranath World School, strongly feel that the very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.
The trip was organised by the school under the guidance of Vice Chairman, Mr. Gaurav Tomar. The places we visited include Mussoorie, Sankri, Juda ka Talab, and Kedarkantha. The nature treks provided students with an opportunity to admire the vivid vistas that are unique to the state and the autumn season. Students spotted wildlife fauna, including, white-headed langurs, Himalayan red fox, mountain hawk-eagle, and a lot of different birds. The students were impressed by the wonders of the environment and returned with memories of beautiful birds, lush green trees, and rolling hills. Many took time to appreciate the delicate beauty of the forest’s wildflowers while others observed the insects around.
Educational trips and outdoor learning can be a massive benefit to the students. Aside from the obvious breath of fresh air, the students will benefit from being outside, it gives students time to breathe! As stress and anxiety rates amongst students are on the rise, there has never been a better time to tackle them, both inside and outside of the classroom.
It was a very wholesome learning experience where students learned about their strengths, weaknesses, the beauty of nature, and the value of all the resources that they get very easily at their places.
Apart from Mr. Gaurav Tomar, other teachers were also present with the students who played a vital role in the trip's success.
