EDUCATIONAL EXCURSION

(Teacher I/C - Mrs Erina Mehta and Mr Anil Sharma)

Something that is seen in real can be easily perceived than something that we simply read in book. An educational travel at VDJS empowers our girls with a new and enhanced perspective to look at things and develop them into considerate personalities, well aware of the world issues at large and in depth. Students get a better grip on the local and the global issues, develop¬ their aesthetic sense and creative faculties. These trips create “episodic memories,” that help our girls retain information for longer periods taking them into a new as well as unfamiliar environment providing them with an experience of traveling with peers and sharing responsibilities. They learn how to make new friends as well as adjust in new situations with much ease. Real life experiences like educational tours to science museums, museums of history and arts, places of research, or factory visits are priceless as they make learning colorful and real. A student who sees, touches, and smells, historical relics, ancient artifacts, and original sources of text becomes motivated to learn more in depth when she returns to the classroom. It allows them to open their eyes to new environments, positively shapes their perspective on an international level and trigger ideas and solutions, that may not stem from their familiar comforts and habits.

Embarking on these tours gives VDJS students a direct source of knowledge and acquaint them with first-hand information which is stimulating and educational.

VDJS organizes several educational excursions round the year:

  • Subject specific educational trips once a term for every class.
  • Annual excursions at the end of the academic year for the whole school.
  • Cycling and trekking expeditions for selected group of students during short vacation or end of exams.
  • International excursions twice a year, during the summer and winter vacation for selected group of students.
