The idea of field trips for students may sound foreign to some people. However, I still cherish memories of my school tour. A trip to Dalhousie was all it took to help me learn several life skills, and develop bonds with friends I still hangout with. At the time, educational trips for students was a new subject, and we didn’t know what to expect in the company of professional tour operators. However, the experience was not only enjoyable, but exciting.
My School Tour to McLeodganj
Our school took us on a 4-day trip to McLeodganj, where we had excursions to Bir & Billing and the famous Khajjiar ground. The entire trip required us to work as teams, and ensure that everyone was taken care of in the best possible manner. It helped me learn the importance of leadership and teamwork.
Even the most menial things matter quite a lot in new places. Whether it was the waiting time for other students or a stop enroute McLeodganj, we had to cooperate with each other, and ensure that every decision was in the best interests of everyone.
Our tour operators were complete professionals, and we couldn’t have asked for better guides. They not only helped us learn a lot about local culture and cuisine, but even conducted activities to instill values and ethics amongst us.
If given a chance, I’d do anything to get those 4 days back, and build more lifelong memories to cherish. If you’ve been considering a school tour, you’re on the right track. You’re in for a fun learning experience that will allow you to develop as a person.
Just like my school tour, make sure you hire professionals to plan and organise everything. It makes everything a lot easier. To get in touch with Renok Adventures, a reputed tour operator, please click here.
A high school tour needs to be an enriching and an enlightening experience for students. It needs to focus on several life skills and interactive sessions to build qualities like leadership, time management etc. Students should be able to absorb these skills, while also participating in programs that focus on improving other aspects of the school curriculum.
Planning and organising field tours or educational tours can be time-consuming and difficult. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to consult professionals for the job. Needless, here are some important considerations to plan excellent high school tours.
Key Areas of a High School Tour
Awareness (Self and surroundings)
Safety is Foremost Concern – The safety of students should be your foremost concern. Professionals have experienced trainers, who can easily manage difficult situations in all kinds of terrain and environments. Carrying a first-aid or medical kit is also important.
Learning Should Be Fun – A fun learning experience allows students to retain memories for a long time. This ensures that your students are able to absorb all the skills being imparted during the course of the journey.
Focus on Outcomes – The activities should be designed to provide students with stable outcomes to meet specific objectives and requirements. With rural India tours, life expeditions, leadership programmes, adventure programmes etc., a professional tour operator can perfectly accomplish this job.
An outdoor high school tour can be the perfect way to help students learn all the important skills listed above. With such programs, students are also able to develop strong bonds with their classmates and teachers.
