Study Tour

Memories of Educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved. An Educational trip is a short trip for pleasure to a beautiful place. Educational trips add spice to our lives. They provide the much sought after relief from our routine life. They refresh out tired nerves. Educational trips give students a temporary relief from their studies. After enjoying an Educational trip, they feel fresh and take up their studies with renewed vigour. Educational trips should always have a major educational element, but the impact of Educational trips can extend much further. The importance of Educational trips includes giving students the chance to build closer bonds with their classmates, experience new environments and enjoy a day away from the classroom Educational trips are important in many ways. Curiosity: Students who go on Educational trips find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the trip focused. Retention: The type of memories that Educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods. Beauty: A picnic usually happens in the lap of nature thus bringing us closer to its serenity and awesome beauty. Nature itself acts as an open health spa by allowing us to breathe fresh air and generates a feeling of euphoria. Reinforcement: The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better. Engagement Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing. Socialization: Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit. This can be particularly advantageous to students who don't have the opportunity to travel. By coming into direct contact with a different environment or even a new culture or language, students can better understand their place in the community and develop an openness to differences in others. New Sights: When students and teachers are together outside the classroom, new educational environments and experiences are possible. Students may have the opportunity to observe many things that are not available at classroom, including exotic wildlife, rare plants. Bonding: Getting away from the everyday atmosphere of the classroom gives students an opportunity to spend time with each other in a new environment. Students may be able to spend much of the Educational trip day in small groups, observing, chatting and learning about each other. Having an Educational trip in the early part of the term is wise, since it will allow students to bond with classmates they may not know very well. Informal Learning Environment: Educational trips provide valuable educational opportunities away from the classroom, without using textbooks and other tools. A student is learning in an informal way and becomes motivated to learn more in depth when he returns to the classroom. If the Educational trip destination has staff members who do hands-on teaching with visiting students -- such as at a science centre or historical museum -- the children will be excited to learn from someone new. Fun: No matter how much students learn during an Educational trip, their favourite memories may be based on their enjoyment of the day. Getting away from classroom for a day or even half a day is always exciting for students, and Educational trips are always highly anticipated. Students will have fun with their friends and they also may return to the classroom with a renewed focus on their classwork. Reward: Before an Educational trip even takes place, it can begin to produce benefits for students. By not allowing students with behavioural or academic problems to participate in an Educational trip, teachers can encourage good behaviour and motivate students to work hard with the prospect of an Educational trip looming as a reward.

Farewell

Education is a pretty broad concept that surpasses the four walls of a classroom. The core aim of education is to foster all round development of a child. All round development essentially means intellectual, physical, moral, sensible and social development. All round development can be achieved only through education. Education plays a fundamental role in the making of a man and his development as a culturally well-developed social animal. To fulfil these objectives, there is a prime need of striking a balance between syllabus, curriculum, books and also co-curricular activities beyond that. They actually complement the curricular activities and groom the students in the “Art of living and working together.” They are the true and practical experiences gained by students by their own learnings.A Chinese proverb very aptly states, “Teach me, and I will forget. Show me, and I might remember. Involve me, and I will never forget.” To a very great extent, the theoretical knowledge is enhanced when a co-curricular activity related to the content taught, is organized. Intellectual development of the personality is achieved to a great extent, in the classroom itself. But, the aesthetic development like character building, spiritual and moral values, physical growth, creativity and many more are backed up by co-curricular activities only. It also professes coordination, adjustment, and speech fluency, extempore and debating skills amongst students. It teaches the students to stand up for their rights. Co-curricular activities render a number of values like: Educational value Psychological Values Development of Social Values Development of Civic Values Physical Development Values Co-curricular activities are vital because even though they are not a part of the core curriculum, they play a very crucial role in giving the young boys and girls the ability to mould their lives to become well rounded people. The school activities have to be designed purposefully to give an apt mix of student’s participation in academics and also create a chance for all round development. Extracurricular activities are those activities which are not the components of academic curriculum but an integral part of educational environment. Extracurricular activities comprises sports, playing, painting, singing, debate, dance, acting & drama, music, social services, cultural activities etc. To develop the various facets of personality of students; curricula must be supplemented with extracurricular activities. Extracurricular activities help in the development of intellectual, emotional and moral development. The main motto of extracurricular activities is personality development. These are the activities which promotes students to take up their study in a healthy manner. All-round development as well as intellectual development is not the domain of curriculum, these characteristics can be judiciously fulfilled by co-curricular activities. Now-a-days, schools and colleges have been given much more importance to extracurricular activities so that the hidden potential of students could be harnessed. Extracurricular activities helps to develop creativity and artistic talents among students. Great educational thinkers such as Rousseau’s, Spencer and Dewey had advocated the importance of extracurricular activities among students so as to develop social relationship intellectual intelligence. Role of Co-Curricular activities in a student’s life cannot be put into words easily. But let us understand some of the major benefits. Overall development of Personality:It helps to enhance the all-round personality of the students to strongly face the turbulent road of the future. Experiences and appreciation gained through these activities assist students during internships and other sponsored programs. Strengthened Self Confidence:The goal of co-curricular activities is to give better fitness to students and inculcate a sense of sportsmanship, competitive spirit, leadership, meticulousness, cooperation, team spirit and team spirit. The hidden motive behind all this is to develop self-confidence and to learn to trust the team. Developed Specialised Skills:Co-curricular activities help hone the talents of the young minds and gives them an opportunity to develop their specialised skills. Competitions that are organized can create a competitive environment and helps them work towards the objective of achieving a better society. Improved Academic Performance:Studies have shown that students pursuing their hobbies achieved better results in their studies. Their academic performance goes way up north as they learn to balance their co-curricular activities with their academic pursuits. They also better understand on how to manage their time efficiently and also increases their interest in the studies. Such activities like participation in debates, drama, music, sports, etc. help in achieving the bigger purpose of achieving better education. Greater Opportunities:In this competitive era, percentages act as game changers during admissions into various courses. Students pursuing any co-curricular activities of their choice are given preference over those who are not involved in any such things. These things make a major difference when students are considered for the most popular courses. Sense of Responsibility:When students in their early teens are given some responsibility or a task to handle like first aid or for that matter managing the class painting board, their efficiency to handle such situations becomes much better. This fosters the sense of responsibility and accountability. Strengthen ResumeExtracurricular activities on resume put a positive notion before the interviewers. Insertion of extracurricular activities on resume strengthen your bio-data when you lack adequate work experience. If you switch over your career or change your job, even in such conditions, insertion of co-curricular activities in your resume played effective role. How to insert and where to put the extra-curricular activities on a resume is also important. It is better to put these activities at the last. The important qualities such as leadership experience, singing, music, sports, writing skills, volunteer work, foreign language, etc. can be incorporated as extracurricular activities. However, inserting more such activities are not desirable. Putting 3 or 4 co-curricular activities on your resume are advisable as per the priority of your interest.

Sportinng Events

For a long time, sports have been viewed as a way to stay healthy and in shape, but their importance goes much further. As a matter of fact, playing sports teaches life lessons like discipline, responsibility, self-confidence, accountability, and teamwork. Studies have shown that exercise increases blood flow to the brain and helps the body build more connections between nerves, leading to increased concentration, enhanced memory, stimulated creativity, and better-developed problem solving skills. In short, playing sports helps your brain grow and makes it work better. From a social standpoint, sports are a powerful tool that brings people together and creates a sense of community. They develop connections that bond together people from all walks of life. As a matter of fact, playing sports teaches us how to deal with failure and disappointment in life. In addition to that, exercising is a great way to get out of the stressful college life that is all about homework, presentations, and group projects. In fact, playing sports helps students relax and reduce their anxiety. To sum up, playing college sports has some serious benefits. Besides just being fun, sports can help you perform better in school, relax more and worry less, deal with setbacks, work better with others and increase your energy — all of which helps you balance college and everything else going on in your life. Time management skills, Creativity in finding ways to improveStrong focus and concentration development, Internal skills for handling pressure, Learning when to take risks, Taking responsibility for individual performance, These skills go far beyond the sports field or even beyond high school. Student athletes reap the benefit of their training for the rest of their lives. Benefits of Sports 1) Community RepresentationStudents who participate in sports learn the benefit of representing their community on the field or court. This feeling of community and the honour of representing the home team may run over into college athletics if the student advances in his sport as well. 2) FitnessWhen students are given more opportunity to participate in sports, their weight and body mass improve. Studies also suggest that student athletes are less likely to participate in unhealthy or risky behaviour when they are playing sports. 3) Improved AcademicsStudy published in the Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise found that students who were active in sports like soccer, football performed 10 percent better in core subjects like math, science, social studies and languages. Because sports offer equal opportunity to all students, 4) Positive attitudeStudents learn to work with a wide range of authority figures, who teach them important lessons about hard work, respect and good sportsmanship. Early experiences with mentors like these help shape students in positive ways for the rest of their lives. 5) Social RelationshipsStudents who participate in sports often forge close friendships with others on the team. These relationships are essential for mental, emotional and physical health. Students bond together over a common passion, and the time they spend together at practice and games builds tight bonds that often last long after high school is over. 6) Leadership SkillsAs students advance through the ranks of the team, they learn valuable leadership skills. Senior athletes are expected to encourage younger team members and hold them accountable. They set an example and often provide advice and guidance both on and off the field. 7) Time ManagementPractice and games take up plenty of a student’s time, leaving much less for school work and other activities. Athletes must learn time management skills if they are to get everything finished 8) Success MindsetSports develops Success Mindset in the students 9) Teamwork and CooperationEveryone is working toward a common goal in team sports, students learn first-hand how their performance impacts the rest of the team. Student athletes must find their place, whether it is to be a leader of the team or to play a supporting role.

Scientific Exhibitions

1. It provides a platform to the students to exhibit their inner talents. As it is completely practical based, so students also find interest in participating in such events2. It strengthens the student's knowledge of the subject matter. In these events the groups of students are divided according to their age and class standards. Thus they are given projects based on their class standards only3. Students can develop the skills of leadership, and relate how to work in groups through such events. As they have to work in a group, it is very important for them to work co-operatively4. A science fair project even provides an opportunity for the discussion of ethical issues, such as plagiarism and falsification of data. Indeed, such a discussion is highly recommended. The ease of copying information from the Internet is hard to resist, and many students are far ahead of their teachers in understanding what is possible5. It plays a vital role in spreading awareness about a particular issue. Preparing a science fair project is an excellent example of what education experts call active learning or enquiry. It is a very effective instructional method; indeed, it is recommended as a cornerstone of successful science teaching.Science fair projects can be really exciting, especially now with all the opportunities the internet gives us. Most kids know how to use a computer for fun and spend many hours a week surfing the net. As parents, we would like to encourage them to use some of their computer time for schoolwork and educational projects. And researching scientific ideas and the scientific method is certainly a good use of their time.But in addition, there are many other great reasons for encouraging your children to do science fair projects.(1) A science fair project is an activity that integrates almost every skill children have been taught.Students must learn how to apply their existing abilities to new areas, as well as learn many new skills. A science fair project can involve reading, logical thinking, writing, grammar and spelling, math, statistics and data analysis, computer science, and graphic arts, as well as scientific methodology. If a student participates in a formal competition, then they will also practice public speaking, and learn how to explain and defend their work in front of a panel of judges.(2) Participating in science fair projects helps develop a feeling of confidence and competence among students, and fosters a spirit of scientific inquiry.Projects usually involve scientific questions that the student is interested in, and a specific topic they have chosen for themselves. Participants must research their question, learn and apply the scientific method to create a valid experiment, and think about the meaning of their results. Some kids get so immersed in their project that they forget about other factors like prizes or the fact that they are actually learning new skills. Science fairs are also a way for students to demonstrate motivation, self-learning, critical thinking, ethics and other important skills and traits.(3) A science fair project is an experience that can be challenging and self-validating.Many students actually do important research and discover previously unknown facts.(4) Many science fairs offer cash prizes, which can be a significant incentive for some people.They also help open the doors of academic opportunity for students. Winners at regional fairs receive recognition for their work, and gain the right to participate at state-level and higher-level competitions.(5) Some of those kids (maybe yours someday) qualify for the international competition at the annual Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.Here the level of cash prizes is significant. In addition, those whose projects qualify for international competitions are judged by the best in the world: top scientists and people from industry. Imagine your child having his or her project judged by a Nobel Laureate. These kinds of things do immeasurable good for the confidence of the student and certainly encourage them further in all of their activities.

Parents Meetings

We believe that every student has tremendous potential which may be different but is unique of its own kind. It is very important to identify student’s interest correctly, nurture and develop it and make career selection based on it. It is required to achieve the golden mean amongst the criteria like personality, scope & economy.Keeping all these things in mind, parents meetings are arranged in order to discuss Academy’s educational planning and workout throughout the year. It is an opportunity for parents to learn about the academic, behavioral, and social well-being of their child and to clarify any related questions or concerns about their grades.It is an important occasion for us as such parental interaction not only allows us to share the student’s progress with parents but also enable us to learn about his/her development at home. so that both of us, can work together to ensure a balanced growth of the student at the tender age. As well as NuclearAcademy have experienced that suggestions from parents has helped us to enhance Academy`s educational workout.
