          ‘Crucial to education is hands-on involvement: showing, not just telling; real experiments and field trips and not just 'virtual reality.'

          Educational visits are important to bridge the gap between education and hands-on experience. They are a vital requirement of educational curriculum and surely make the topic more creative and effective resulting in successful learning of the topic with great ease. Field trips are crucial for every student to widen their knowledge, culture and hands-on experience which in turn produces questions and answers that help to shape a student’s future.

          Concurring with the leverage of educational trips, St. Xavier’s High School planned an educational trip as a part of its activity based teaching programme where in students of grade IV were taken to SRT Textile, Manesar in order to acquaint them with the process of cloth making. Students avidly witnessed the transformation of raw fiber into a fine sheet. They were amused to witness the working of machines leading to sewing of quilts, pillows in fractions of seconds in bulk. They observed the working and timing of the cloth machines for each task and were fascinated with the overall observation. Their queries were cleared by the facilitators through live demonstrations hence resulting in complete understanding of the concept.

          The visit not only provided live demonstration of cloth making along with other number of products but also resulted in an indelible experience for our learners. The visit gave a vivid learning of the topic to the students complying with the notion ‘show me how to do it, so I can be successful.’ Students have the experience etched in their memories and will always apply it when needed.
