DPS, Bokaro organises ‘Experiential Learning Tours’ for Primary wing students
With the aim to actively engage learners in progressive education, students of DPS, Primary Wing got the opportunity to travel regionally for Experiential Learning.
The students visited CISF Camp, Sudha Diary, Aerodrome, Sai Temple, Aaiyappa Temple, Gurudwara, Church, and other places of importance in Bokaro. Director & Principal, Dr. Hemlata S Mohan said, “Experiential Learning involves extensive learning activities, including outdoor education, adventure learning, group-based learning and travel which further enhance the curriculum. Field trips are important to bridge the gap between education and hands-on experience. This educational approach begins in the classroom, expands to the community and eventually takes the learning process into the world at large.”
Headmistress, P Shailaja Jaykumar said that one of the reasons for organising such trips is “to expose the children to different cultures, people and places at an impressionable age. Students
start appreciating the relevance and importance of what they are learning in the classroom with the help of experiences gained in the field trips” the trips are a combination of visits to science, nature centres and religious places with a bit of sightseeing. It is an invaluable experience, she said.
