Educational Visit to Serenity Library on 19th July, 2017

The morning of 19th July became more knowledgeable and pleasant for Biology students of Rajasthan English Hr. Sec. School as guided by their teachers classes XI – B and XII – B visited a Serenity Library located at Bhat in the lap of nature. The bus carrying students reached the Library at 9:00a.m.

The 11 acre area corded by the Library consisted of many amazing species of butter flies, plants etc. the students acquainted themselves with many images of kind species beautifully placed on both the side of the narrow path taken by them. The Resource person Dr. Pratiksha Patel took the students to the botanical garden.

A number of varied plant species were witnessed by the students. After seeing the rare species with special qualities like Madhunashi Sankgandha, Indian corts tree, Arjun tree left the students with awe struck expression.

They were asked to taste the leaves of ‘ Madhunashi’ which make the tastebuds ineffective and there after students could not detect the sweet taste of chocolates provided to them.

The young leaves of Teak wood tree were given to students who practically saw the leaves imparting red colour on being rubbed. The holy ‘Druva’ grass associated with many myths in Mahabharta was also seen. Sight of other rare species like Cardboard Palm, Cycus, Silk Cotton tree, Bronge Shiel, Blue snake weed, couroupitagianmis made the students feel the wonder of plant kingdom.

Medicinal uses of some plants like Bryophyllum, Arjun tree, Bonbax ceba, Tinospora on Neem tree help in curing kidney stones, blood pressure, pimples and diabetes respectively. They also saw Nagliaugum tree which sheds its leaves on detecting pollution.

Inside the hall ‘ Herkaridum’ sheets of many plants species, safely kept were seen by the students. The monsoon season alert from snakes was given by the resource person and also four types of poisonous snakes and the way to detect a special type was told to the young biologists.

Thus with a pack of knowledge and bundle of joy the group returned back to school a 12:30p.m.

“True ease comes from art and not chance As those move easiest who have learned to dance”

This thought of the great poet A. Pope goes well with students teaching learning experience outdoors. Educational tours prove motivating and inspiring.

Away from the monotonous class room teaching a trip to Bakor forest in district Panchmahal was arranged on January 6, 2017 for Hr. Sec. Science Stream students.

It was 6: a.m. a chilly winter morning. All students of self – finance Hr. Sec. Section who present on time with freshness writ large on their faces. A day’s trip to Bakor by two buses started at 6:30 a.m. Now the exploration of the various trees path and topography began. Bakor’s way was mountainous and had narrow and steep roads.

After proceeding for one and a half hour the breakfast was served in a dinning area at Derasar and then at 9:30 the buses reached Kaleshwari temple complex. Under the guidance of efficient teachers the students curiously outstretched their wings towards gaining knowledge. Two step wells named Sasu ni Vav & Vau ni Vav made the students realize the advanced technology in 15th & 16th century when it was built. Students explored the place with pleasure under guided instructions and developed inspiration.

The whole place was full of Teak trees, their big yellow leaves were lying on the ground giving it a fawn colour. The Aravallis on one side were welcoming the students. After climbing nearly 110 stairs, we reached the remains of two Lord Shiva temples. It is believed that Hidimba lived in this forest and got married to one of the Pandava brothers of Mahabharata period. The place where Anjuna got married stands by the name of Arjun NI Chori and Bheem’s wedding place is named as Bheem ni Chori. The huge foot mark of Hidimba and Bheem’s feet was also seen by the students.

The art of making statue of equal size and the usage of Geometry and Symmetry were clearly visible on the remains present. After two hours of sightseeing, students proceeded to Sundarvan Camp Sight. The fresh fields of mustard with yellow flowers welcomed the students. Birds like Turkey and Goose were also seen. At 3:30 p.m. the Trekking to Bakor forest started. It was a deep narrow stretch of nearly two and a half km. which had many trees with flowers and distinctive leaves. The tree named ‘Tendu’ ( Asian ebony tree) whose leaves are used for making Beedis was also spotted. The other trees like Mahua ( butter tree), custard apple various berries were also seen. The jungle was full of Teak trees. The guide to the forest told that the Trekking path became a river in rainy season as the lake water coming from Aravallis flows down during the period. The lake had beautiful water falls with crystal clear water and Aravalli mountain standing as a guard. The boulders big and small were all clear and the place was full of birds and wild life like Hyena, Neel Gay etc. It was told that Leopard visited the lake to drink water.

Teaching Learning atmosphere had become interesting and spontaneous there. It was a trip where we moved from the confines of the class room to the world at large. Students made the trip memorable by engaging themselves in multiple modalities no matter which pair of disciplinary lenses were intended to where. It was a trip which enriched students own disciplinary approach to Nature,

It ended at 11:30 when the bus reached back to school and the happy students were escorted at home by their parents.
