“Remember, it is not what you have but what you give that bring happiness”
Lord Baden Powell
Camp is not only about facing challenges; it is also about spending time outdoors and being physically active. With the joy of winter, the students of Class VI set out for a camp on 20th and 21st December 2016 at Harthalu, under the guidance of Mr. Girish (SM) Mr. Vasudev (SM) Mr. Sunil (SM) Mrs. Shilly Jose (G.CPT) and Mrs. Mangala.
The fascinating day began with the flag procedure that was followed by a skit performed by the guides on the history of Baden Powell. Competition on knotting was organized by the teachers in which the students participated with great enthusiasm. After that, the students were given practical knowledge of Rubber Plantation by Mr. Madhukesh, which was followed by cook without fire. After the preparation of tasty dishes, the food was judged by Guide Captains and Scout Masters. Later, after an hour’s preparation, Scouts and Guides gave their wonderful performances.
The programme was commenced with skits, songs and dances that were witnessed by our Honourable Principal Mrs. Shobha Ravindra, Vice Principal Mr. Arvind Gujjar, and Middle Section Head Mistress Mrs. Rajashree along with a few guests. Later, to experience the beauty of nature and perceive the night sky with the sight of countless stars and the silvery moon, we stepped out to explore the darkness.
Early at dawn with the fascinating dewdrops hanging on the blades of grass the students began the day with BP6 Exercises and preparation of tents. Scout masters and Guide Captains observed activities like tent making, uniform and cleanliness during kit inspection. This was followed by hoisting of flag. In the assembly the best patrols were appreciated by masters for food display, knotting competition, kit inspection and uniform.
The students later, at around 11 am, set off for trekking, by spending time with nature and enjoying fresh air and sunshine. The troupe walked into the Arecanut plantation, fields and woods with a feeling of challenge and hoping to conquer the unknown. They reached our camp spot at around 1.30pm. After lunch and lowering the flag, scouts and guides cleaned the campus and packed their bags. With a sense of excitement of learning something new, they made their way back to school.
The camp taught the little ones to appreciate nature, to be responsible, to confront their fears daringly, to face challenges and to work as a team.
