TRIP TO SURAJGARH FARMS (MARCH 12 & 16, 2019)
 


 “I went on trips, excursions, adventures and each time returned with a different ‘I’.”

– Aatman Thaker

 

Surajgarh farms provides an escape from the hustle bustle of Gurugram, and all the pressures that we call upon ourselves as residents of a big city. GDGPS Sector 48, in line with its philosophy of holistic development chose to take the students of classes III and IV on March 12, 2019 and students of class VIII on March 16, 2019 along with their teachers on a day long excursion to Surjagarh Farms situated in the outskirts of Gurugram.


The aim of the trip was to make students enjoy with nature and take them away from the noise and pollution that are inherent to any big city living. The trip began at 8:30 a.m. when the eager children boarded the school busses. The excitement in the little ones was palpable.


The drive to the farms took about half an hour and the students filed out, excited to be in open green areas. The teachers let the children run around and live the moment to the fullest. Then with a view to getting things to move on, the children were called in a group and briefed about the activities at the farms which had been reconnoitered by the School’s staff. Games in the lush green lawns followed by breakfast and then more games had the children enthralled. The staff at the farms took the children and their escorting teachers on a tour and showed them around the farm. The children were amazed that such verdant greens with unadulterated fun existed so close their house. Sun kissed lush green lands spread over 12 acres, scenic village roads to walk straight into India’s exotic heritage filled with farm style activities, adventure, tractor ride, camel ride, bullock cart ride and a rustic menu all added to the fun.



Post lunch it was time for some dance on foot tapping music. The drive back to the school was pleasant with the incessant chatter of the students.  Finally, around 5 p.m. the day full of adventure, tradition, fun, delicious lip-smacking food, lush greenery and fresh air drew to a close and the students went back home happy that they had had a glimpse of the other India.
