to education is hands-on involvement: showing, not just telling; real
experiments and not just virtual reality.
“Nothing ever becomes real till it
is experienced!” Adding on to the joy of the meticulous
Xavierians and to help promote change, inspire global citizenship and build
strong community awareness among the children, on July 27, 2019, a day-long excursion to Kidzania was organised for the
students of St. Xavier’s high School, Gurugram.
This tour to KIDZANIA not
only refreshed them after their Pre Mid Term Examination, but also imparted
great learning values likeTime Management, Importance of Teamwork, Care for
Environment and Value of Money. The students were be able to explore the fields
of Business and Finance, Designing, Engineering, Hospitality and Service, Media
Service and Medical Science. Real life learning situations enabled them to
learn about professional hassles and their possible outcomes.
experience proved to be hands-on, engaging, didactic, and most importantly,
fun. By emulating the working of a real city which is built-to-scale for kids, the
students got an exceptional learning experience and strengthened in
them the bond of friendship, sense of responsibility, value of sharing &
caring and quality of independence.
The only thing that the children wanted was more time! The
day went so speedily and brimming with excitement, enthusiasm and lovely memories they came back
to the school in the evening. Overall, the budding explorers got an excellent opportunity
to engage and excel!
