Ride At A Height - Metro, Primary Section, WIS, Pawan Baug

Field Trip – Metro (Versova-Ghatkopar-Versova)

Students of Grade I - IV were taken for a Field Trip to Reliance Metro, Mumbai on Saturday, December 5, 2015. The journey was planned from Versova - Ghatkopar -Versova. An enthusiastic group of students and teachers were welcomed warmly by the management team and the staff members.
 Students were taken through the public bridge towards the station and they were excited to see the systematic arrangements made on the 1st level.  Students were shown the ticket counter where they observed the way how commuters purchased the tickets in the form of a coin or a card and swipe it at the entrance to board the train. Students were amazed to see various stalls on the 1st level which availed the food services for the commuters. Students were taken through the same entrance and were guided to move towards the 2nd level from where they had to board the train. Students expressed their excitement by screaming ‘YEAH!!’ on the arrival of the train. The management team and staff members ensured the safety and security of the students; therefore they had arranged 2 trains for students. Grade II & III occupied few compartments in one train whereas Grade I & IV occupied compartments in another train.  Not only the compartments were reserved for the students but also special security accompanied the students and teachers to avoid the daily commuters from entering the reserved compartments.

Students were startled to see various facilities available in the train which meant to deliver safe, reliable and sustainable mode of travel to customers. Students were informed about the total number of stations between Versova to Ghatkopar. Eagerness to see and halt at next station was visible on their faces as the indicators in the train informed them about the next station each time. A ride of 40 minutes gave our students an opportunity to know and understand how Metro service is different from the Local train service.
The combination of learning through practical experience along with fun was made possible through this trip which cannot be explained within the four walls of a classroom. Through such field trips, we hope to cultivate practical learners by fuelling their innate curiosity and encouraging them to understand in a hands-on way.

The field trip was an overall success with the students’ enthusiastic response. It was an interesting, enriching and informative field trip.

Witty International School thanked the management team and the staff of Reliance Metro for providing their valuable time and for their assistance and co-operation rendered to us.
