Trips and excursions are a perfect way to expand the horizons of our students. An excursion to Pu La Deshpande Park was an excellent opportunity for students of Delhi Public School Pune, to unwind from their hectic schedule and explore nature. It was an enjoyable and valuable learning experience for students to understand and bond nature’s pristine beauty. Pune-Okayama Friendship Garden or Pu La Deshpande Udyan is one of the largest gardens located on Sinhagad Road. Students witnessed firsthand experience the play of shades, light and dark in the garden. The wide lawn areas constitute the light part, whereas the dense forests represent the dark shades to maintain comparative harmony. The excursion gave them an insight on how trees contribute to the environment and thus we became more responsible in realizing our duty towards preserving it.
The next destination for the day was the National War Memorial Southern Command.
It is a war memorial in Pune Cantonment, dedicated to the martyrs of post-Independence wars. The museum represents the bond of the civilians with the armed forces. This trip instilled the values of patriotism, joy of freedom and respect for the soldiers among the student. Thus the School Excursion of Class VII for the Academic Session of 2018-19 was an enriching one and would definitely leave an indelible impression on the minds of the young citizens of our country, who would always try to live up to the noble ideals inculcated in them through these meaningful tours and educational but fun trips.
