Visit To National Bal Bhawan - (2 May 2012)
Exploring and observing makes learning not only concrete but develops interest. Keeping the same idea in mind HT – PACE organized a visit to the National Bal Bhawan for class IV of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School. The teachers accompanied their respective classes and a group of approximately two hundred students was taken to the interesting museum on 2 May 2012. The visit was liked by the students as it incorporated the visit to the Aquarium with all the colourful fishes. After being charmed by the colourful water world, now was the turm to be bowled over by revisiting the historical events of India. Depicted in tabuleau forms, the events were exhibited chronologically starting from Ramayana to important events that lead to India’s Freedom from the British rule. It was an enriching experience for the students. Certain tableaus like the Vijaynagar Kingdom, Sati Pratha and Abdul Hamid’s conquest on army tanks during 1975 Indo - Pak War garnered special mention from the children.

Children were also shown around the place and their interest grew all the more when they witnessed various classes of music, dance, art, craft, clay modeling, puppetry, etc. taking place there. The enthusiasm of students even reached its peak when they were told that they could also enroll themselves to learn these special skills during their vacations. And as the hot weather was about to dampen the spirits, they again came back on track when they paid visit to the Magic Mirrors. Finally it was time to board buses and get back to school. But visits like this would always be welcome by students where they can learn while having fun.

The white flag represents the airforce and the blue flag represents the navy.

We also got to know about the height of the India gate which was MCMXV and MCMXX. As the republic day was coming we were able to see a glimpse of the republic day parade. Then we went to the Rashtrapati Bhawan. While walking to the Rashtrapati Bhawan we saw our parliament house, the Ministry of Home Affairs, Ministry of Finance. Then we visited the Jantar Mantar. There we learnt how time was calculated through buildings designed by the Indian architects in the ancient times.

We really need to give a big round of applause to the ancient Indian architects who had very unique and innovative ideas to help our country make a mark in the global world. This helped to nurture the Cosmopolitan in us!!!!
