Field Trip Report Grade VI

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”

These words quoted by Margaret Mead hold a strong relevance to the current times as well. The students of Std VI visited Shri Mahavira Jain Vidyalaya, Agarkar Road, an education center in Pune for their field trip. This Vidyalaya was established in 1914. The Vidyalaya
believes that education coupled with pursuit of basic principles of Jainism will help in creating better citizens tomorrow. Jainism is not a mere religion but a way of life.

The teachers and students were warmly welcomed by the SMJV staff. They visited the magnificent marble Lord Mahavira temple first. The most outstanding feature of this architecture is its carvings and understatement. The entire trip through the lush green trees along with brief, intermittent insightful talks by Mr. Yuvraj Shah not only helped the students get information but also indulged them to savour the pristine locale which was a respite thoroughly enjoyed by the students. The students and teachers relished a sumptuous breakfast.

From nature trail up the hillock, a visit to the jungle book library, walk on the London bridge with showers of artificial rain, luxuriant terrace garden, to a brief hangout in a tree house, every aspect of the trip helped the students get hands -on-learning on how to expand our natural environment by upcycling discarded yet reusable materials like pots, commodes, coconut shells, tyres of all sizes, cycles and cycle tyres, shoes, pipes to name a few to recreative reuse. Ms. Dhanashree briefed the students with the journey of the mini nature park that they created. Right from its inception to its development through various stages, the transformation of the place was described in an interesting way and encouraged students to work positively for the environment. Before leaving, students were taken to the enclosed well with sprinklers and an artificial rainbow which was an added attraction for them. It was a great learning and an enriching experience for the students and teachers alike.
