In the month of July, Vasant Valley School pioneered a field trip to a small village in Haryana, Jhanjhrola as part of the Outreach Programme. The third visit from the 1st to the 3rd of September was an immersive experience brought together the two worlds of rural and urban to encourage an exchange of ideas. It was an enriching experience that enabled the participants to imbibe the learning into their daily lives.
In the project report submitted by the children, a sense of achievement, of learning and of teaching stood out proudly. They, for the very first time, were able to engage in the pleasures of walking in the crop fields, milking cows and spending time with the local families. In exchange, they also showcased and hosted a cultural programme for the children of the village government school.
This two way street allowed them to learn and teach at the same time. Whether it was Science and Math or simple conversation with the village kids about their lives in the city, each moment brimmed with opportunity. The highlight of the trip was a tractor ride in the fields that taught the children about local farming techniques but also made for an exhilarating experience. In conclusion, the fusion of both unique worlds added a new dimension to their thinking!
