It has been rightly said that the "Heart of education is the education of the heart". And a child's heart not only seeks knowledge but also yearns for stimulating learning through exciting things, places and people. Keeping in mind the overall development of the students, Calorx Olive International School provided its students from Grade 1 to 5 with a rejuvenating break through a 1 night 2 day trip to Little Rann of Kutch. It was commendable on the part of the little ones to self-manage them throughout the Trip. We at COIS promote these skills through Learning beyond classrooms!
It was a fun filled trip away from school and home where students had the opportunity to learn in a completely different environment. They learnt to look after themselves and their belongings away from the supervision of their parents. They learnt to adjust themselves in the company of their peers.
The thrill of going on a Jeep Safari around the Wild Ass Sanctuary cannot be put into words. The excitement and joy of driving through the desert hoping to catch a glimpse of the animals darting for cover have somehow even escaped the photographs. The keen eyes of the students however did manage to sight the flamingoes enlighten the dreary land along with black tailed Godwits, Black Headed Ibis and a few Black Winged Stilts. The students visited the Salt Marsh and communicated with the Agariyas, the hardworking community that makes the desert its home to extract the whitest Salt in the world.The bonfire the night before helped to bring the spirit of camaraderie and friendship to the fore. The trip was well planned and executed by Anala Outdoors.
