A trip to the zoo

The tiny tots of Nursery and KG were taken on a field trip to the zoo on 24 May. They were accompanied by their teachers. It was a happy experience for all the children. When asked what they all saw and how much they enjoyed, there were a lot of interesting replies like “I saw tiger, rhinoceros and monkey. I liked the monkey when it jumped from one tree to another.” There were even some who couldn’t stop exaggerating their meeting with a tiger. “The tiger and we were this near and we were about to get eaten by it,” said a toddler. “These field trips are important to give the little ones complete education. When children see things, they never forget. They learn things fast after observing the things themselves,” a teacher, who accompanied the children, said. — Sneha Subedee, Class IX Triyog High School
