A field trip to the Ganga Aquarium situated at Telibagh, Lucknow, was organised by Staford School, on 16th October, 2018 for the students of classes III and IV.
The Aquarium is located in the lush green of the National Bureau of Fish Genetic Resources (NBFGR), with more than 40 large glass aquariums, with fish species and varieties from all over the world. The Ganga Aquarium is situated in a building with a centrally carved fountain pool, graced with marble fish mermaids and beautiful live ornamental Koi-fish and turtles for recreation. It displays the most beautiful species of flower horns, large catfish and tiny tetras.
The objective of taking the students for the field trip was to augment their learning and enhance the understanding of the mysterious world of science hidden in deep waters. The children were fascinated to see the various species of colourful, big and small, freshwater fish and learn their names.
The students got a better understanding of aquatic life. They became aware of the conservation of aquatic genetic resources.
The students loved watching all sorts of especially selected and sorted species of the fish. They closely observed the different ways in which each category of fish lived in their respective habitat and environment. Overall, it was a very exciting and enriching experience for the students.
