Students in Action

Students in Action

Dear parents,

Students went for a 2 day CAS trip to Dharampur. It was a truly learning experience for the students. They were involved in different activities like painting the classrooms, visiting  the hospital and centre for physically challenged children.

They also worked in a Gaushala (cow shed), became “gwala” for a day, milked the cows, cleaned the cowshed, gave bath to the cows and fed them.

Students indeed functioned hard for 2 days and were able to bring pleasure and contentment to others and themselves.

Had an unforgettable expedition with my students!

Falguni Jariwala
