Field trips are important because they give ‘hands on’ experience to the students. Staford School always believes that learning should not be restricted within the four walls of a school. As a part of the ‘hands on’ learning experience students of class IV had an opportunity to visit a farmhouse on Tuesday, 22nd January 2019.
They were overwhelmed with joy upon seeing the vegetables in their natural surroundings. It was exciting for the students to see some vegetables grow above the soil and some of them under it.
Cabbage, radish, carrot, green chillies, bottle gourd, beetroot, dragon fruit etc. were some of the vegetables that the students saw and plucked and also visited the coriander and mustard fields.
The fun and frolic did not end there. A wide variety of animals such as roosters, hens, goats, buffaloes, rabbits, etc. at the farmhouse added to their enthusiasm. Playing on the slides and swings was an added attraction.
The visit was a nature’s walk clubbed with knowledge and entertainment. The teachers and students returned to the school loaded with happy memories, coupled with the sample of some or the other organically grown vegetable and above all treasure of knowledge.
