Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire. On December 21st, an enlightening day trip was organised for Class 9 students, accompanied by four teachers. Commencing at 8:30 AM, the itinerary spanned Prime Minister Sangrhalay, Qutub Minar, and the Lotus Temple.
At Prime Minister Sangrhalaya, students immersed themselves in the constitutional making and policies of past Prime Ministers. Qutub Minar offered insights into the art and architecture of the Slave Dynasty era. The Lotus Temple instilled a profound understanding of diverse religious practices, fostering values of harmony and peaceful coexistence.
This educational journey was more than a field trip; it ignited a passion for knowledge and cultural understanding among the students.
