THE NATIONAL RAIL MUSEUM

Trip to the National Rail Museum is an exceptional delight with its remarkable display of India’s rail heritage, antique locomotives, exclusive exhibits, train rides and more. Spread over an area of 11 acres, this one-of-a-kind museum offers attractions not just for students but for teachers also, and made for a fun learning experience.

AERO PLANET

At Presidium, we not only focus on academics but also fun with learning. Keeping this in mind, a fun filled trip is organised for the students every now and then to the Aero Planet at Dwarka, New Delhi. It is a great learning experience for them as they witness everything about the aviation industry from the airplane to the operations.

RED FORT

The Red Fort is located in the heart of the capital - New Delhi. The fort was the main home of the emperors of the Mughal dynasty for around 200 years until the 1857 mutiny. Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan got it constructed in the year 1639. Visit to the Red Fort is not only an Educational but also a cultural trip. This great monument is the standing example of rich Indian culture’s amalgamation with the Mughal culture which the Mughals had brought to India with them.

Students enjoyed the Mughal style of architecture with the fusion of Persian and Hindu traditions. The chief chambers of the fort were Diwan-e-aam and Diwan-e-khaas. The other places students witnessed were Rang Mahal, a Museum (earlier it was Mumtaj Mahal) etc. Each and every wall of the fort was telling us the beautiful stories of Aristocracy and Indian Freedom Movement. This is also the place from where our Prime Minister unfurls flag and addresses the country every year on 15th August.

Students also enjoyed food at Red Fort. Outside the fort, they also did some shopping. Then we started the return journey. Really it was the pleasant experience. Besides, the visit enhanced our knowledge about this great historical place and our rich culture and tradition.

INDIA GATE

The tiny tots of Presidium, accompanied by their teachers, went on an educational excursion to India Gate (originally called the All India War Memorial). Excitement was in the air as the children prepared to leave for the day. Before leaving, the children were given a brief description about the monument. They were told that it was a memorial built in honour of Indian soldiers who sacrificed their lives to protect our country.

At the memorial, the children were shown the ‘Amar Jawan Jyoti’ (the flame of immortal soldiers) which burns in a shrine under the arch of the India Gate. The children felt a sense of pride as they looked up to see the names of the scores of brave Indian soldiers inscribed on the walls. They were made immortal thus, for their valiant sacrifice. The children were also shown the three flags, each signifying the three armed forces of independent India.

Afterwards, we moved to the lawns surrounding India Gate and for leisure nature walk. As we got up to leave later, each one of us turned once more in awe and homage for the shrine. The teachers prompted the children to stand in a row and offer a smart salute in honour of these fearless men.

On a whole, it was an enjoyable and an educative experience which helped the students to know about patriotism and martyrdom, which will be cherished by them forever.

RELIGIOUS PLACES

At Presidium, we firmly believe in the holistic development of the students and educational excursions are an integral part of the curriculum. Keeping that in mind and to reinforce the topics taught in the class, the students of Presidium class 6 th and 7th were taken for an excursion to different places of worship in September last year. Students visited a temple, gurudwara and church and learned about different places of worship religions and cultures.

The Indian capital is a home to myriad religious spots, among which are architectural marvels such as the Lotus Temple - House of Worship, which is made of white marble petals. From watching a qawwali performance at the medieval Nizamuddin Dargah and listening to gurbani at the beautiful Bangla Sahib Gurudwara to attending the light and sound show at the Akshardham Temple, students had several interesting cultural experiences at these places of worship during their one day city tour to religious place.

Thanks to its cultural diversity, Delhi wakes up to the calls of Namaz, bells of temples and Gurbani in the gurudwaras every day. The students returned with first-hand experience of different religious places and religions followed by the people of India.

FEROZ SHAH KOTLA

The Feroz Shah Kotla stadium is one of the best cricket grounds in the world, and right before that lies a magnificent fort the erstwhile citadel of Firozabad, the fifth city of Delhi. The students of Presidium got an opportunity to explore the fort last year. The walk in fort was a great experience for students, because it totally changed the narrow perspective about history and monuments.

QUTUB COMPLEX

At Presidium, we believe school excursions enhance students’ learning by providing opportunities for students to participate in curriculum-related activities outside normal school routine. Infact, school excursions are well-planned curriculum-related activities that aim to maximize students’ learning experiences. Keeping this in mind the students of class 5th accompanied by their class teachers went for a school excursion to Qutab Minar.

The purpose was to educate the children on a heritage site of Delhi. The children were given a brief history on the monument beforehand. They were told that the Qutab Minar is the tallest tower in India and the world’s tallest brick minaret. It is interesting to note that this complex lies amidst the ruins of ancient Hindu temples which were destroyed and their stones used to build the famous minar. As we walked around the complex, we felt surrounded by history. We were told that construction began in 1193 AD under India’s first Muslim ruler Qutb-ud-din Aibak. The Qutub Minar is notable for being one of the earliest and most prominent examples of Indo-Islamic architecture. It is surrounded by several ancient and medieval ruins, collectively known as the Qutab Complex. The complex is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Delhi.

HUMAYUN'S TOMB

Humayun’s Tomb is one of the hot spots in Delhi, the capital city of India. The students of Presidium are taken on a field trip to Humayun Tomb as a part of their curriculum. The objective is to introduce the class to a specimen of Mughal architecture. Students, accompanied by their teachers, explore the complex which is an exceptional synthesis of Persian and Indian traditions of architecture.
