Educational tours & excursions are not only the way to refresh and recreate child but also a ways to impart education. We know that boarding life is well disciplined and well scheduled. After a span of period children require some relaxation form this life as they do at their homes. GRD always consider the needs and emotions of students. In our academic calendar, we have provided sufficient space to educational tours & excursion which are arranged according to mental level and age of students. We arrange these tours and excursion in three groups viz first group is classes Playgroup to V, second group is VI to VIII and third group is IX to XII. These groups enjoy and learn many aspects of life from these educational tours & excursions. Qualities of responsibility, sharing, self-dependence, courage, way of handling different critical situation are inculcated through this aspect of our curriculum. These tours are organized by well know tour & travel companies/group to cater the all possible facilities as well as insurance of each child.
These educational tours & Excursions start in the month of October and extend up till December for different groups. Group first and group second generally have one or two days’ tours while group third including boarders having four to five days tours. Parents are informed well before starting of tours. Students on tours are escorted by warden, physical instructors and housemaster/mistress.
Every human being requires some moments of entertainment to forget all the stresses of daily routine. GRD understand the importance of entertainment in student’s life. We have provided the facility of common room in boys hostel as well as girls hostel separately, where they can see cable T.V. as per our schedule given in daily routine. We provide this facility for one hour daily under the supervision of wardens. During this one hour, it is compulsory to see News (Hindi & English) for 15-20 minutes and during rest of the time, they can see comedy, musical programs and cartoons of their own choices.
