"Our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help our nation." Nelson Mandela
One of the ways to promote student agency is taking learners out of the academic environment. Our enthusiastic learners of PYP 5, who are gearing up for their exhibition, got a chance to explore the natural beauty and heritage of places near Indore through a train trip in the newly launched ‘Heritage Train’
The special heritage train on the picturesque Patalpani-Kalakund section in Madhya Pradesh’s Ratlam district is an initiative of the Western Railways of India, and the 9.5-km route passed through several tunnels offering a spectacular view of waterfalls and lush green mountain ranges. The train had six stops at major tourist spots, including Patalpani waterfall, Tantya Bhil Mama Mandir, valley view point, check-dams, Choral river view at Kalakund and Hanuman temple. The learners were excited to see the scenic beauty at different stations which were no less than a visual treat and offered food for thought to our inquisitive minds, who are exploring their glorious past.
The trip will remain a memorable one for our students as travelling and learning about the past with peers is not something that happens everyday.
