RC International School, Hesaraghatta we had a well- established trip to Mysore on 17/01/2020 that focuses primarily on student interest. As a brand, we tailor-make educational tours every year from our RC INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL. This helps students to understand, experience and learn outside the confines of a traditional classroom. All of this is coupled with loads of fun and travel around the world.
Early morning we departure at 6 AM from the Bangalore, On the way, in Mysore road, we visited a Lord Aprameya Swamy temple and with blessings of Lord Krishna, we continued our journey to Mysore. Soon exactly at 8.AM, we had breakfast which was prepared by our own referred professional cooking chefs in our CBSC schools in Thammenahalli which we have arranged from Bangalore to serve breakfast, lunch, evening snacks as well as dinner, it was really exciting for our students where we give our first preference towards students health and hygiene of food.
The first place we visited in Mysore was the Mysore zoo, which is one of the 10 most popular zoos in India. It is officially known as Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens. It sprawls over a huge area of 157-acres. This makes is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in south India as well as Asia. Mysore zoo is home to the largest number of elephants compared to any other zoo in India. Currently, it houses around 10 elephants. Apart from elephants, our students in CBSE schools in Chikkabanavara enjoyed some of the other exotic fauna includes striped Hyena, Jungle cat, Asiatic black bears, African Elephant. It is also the only zoo in South Asia to host a Gorilla. Apart from this, the zoo is home to Bengal tiger, Indian wolves, giraffe, leopard, hippopotamus, rhino, crane, swan, zebra, and many other animals and reptiles and also students excitedly watched the birds being fed. At our Smart schools in Hesaraghatta main road, our teachers also explained the students about the animal adoption program in Mysore zoo which has been a great success. It provides all the facilities to adopt an animal right from our home. Overall the zoo visiting session was very well spent. The children enjoyed it to the fullest. It gave us the feeling of fulfillment and made the trip a success.
Soon after the Zoo visit, we had arranged a delicious lunch at 1 PM to keep up our student’s energy and with great enthusiasm, we continued our visiting sessions.
Next, the place we visited in Mysore was the beautiful Mysore Palace, belonging to Wodeyar Dynasty. Students were astounded by its beauty as it shimmered, sparkled and shone in the light of the midday sun. We heard that the current scion of the Wodeyar Dynasty still lives behind the palace and participates in functions during Dussehra Festival.
In the evening, at 6 PM we went to Brindavan Gardens (KRS Dam) was built by the chief engineer of Mysore, Sir M.Visveswaraya during the period of Krishnaraja wodeyar IV in which has lots of wide-open spaces and colorful fountains. Students enjoyed musical fountain however, the park was very well maintained and the artificial water body was very attractive. We feel the authorities have taken more care of this garden. Once the visiting sessions over, we had a tasty dinner at 8 PM near the garden area.
Now, you may think that is all; but no, there was more, for we stumbled onto a couple of gems on our trip that is where we had a dance, song and more entertaining aspects throughout our journey back to Bangalore!!
It was a fantastic trip to magnificent Mysore and we will be going to treasure this experience with all our students’ hearts and souls. The trip has been the best which was highly action-packed and we hope we have more exciting trips to places like this in upcoming days in our Schools near Hesaraghatta.
