"A FUN - FILLED FIELD TRIP - A DAY IN A VILLAGE"

Our School organised an Educational Trip for the students of Class X to Irumbuli Village at Acharapakkam near Melmaruvathur. 118 students along with their teachers visited the village theme park on 4th August , 2018.

The eventful day began with a ride on the bullock cart for a short distance. The drum beat of the villagers echoed in the air and the students danced to the rhythmic tune while entering the village. The villagers greeted and welcomed the staff and students in a traditional way by applying 'Tilak' and showering flowers. The cool buttermilk offered to everyone as welcome drink was energising and set the pace for the day's fun activities.

The students had merry time playing in the wet field various exciting village games like Balance Walk, Shooting with Catapults, Smashing Water Laden Pots tied high, Slip and Slide, Running Race and Rotating the Tyre with a Stick. 'Karagattam' by the students along with their teachers expressed their joy and happiness. Tasty porridge was served during lunch time to all.

After the exhaustive day of fun and excitement, our students interacted with the students of that village Government School for one hour. The students exhibited their talents by singing folk songs and reciting Thirukkural. Their bright smile and innocent looks made the day very special for all. The students also witnessed the craft of pot - making.

At the end, the host Mr.Chandramohan requested everyone to realise the importance of food, hard work of farmers and insisted the students to avoid any wastage of food. On the whole, this fun - filled trip will be etched in one's memory forever. Irumbuli, is the best place to spend a day in a village atmosphere.
