NERUL, FEBRUARY 23, 2011: The students of Don Bosco Senior Secondary School, Nerul, went for a field trip on February 18, 2011.

Classes I and II visited the Rock Garden in Nerul, where they learnt about the various kinds of medicinal plants and the nursery. A rose garden in its premises attracted the kids. The children enjoyed themselves.

Classes III and IV visited the Central Park at Kharghar. The park is a blend of landscape and urban design, intended to provide an excellent place for active and passive recreation. It is spread over an area of around eighty Ha in sectors twenty three, twenty four and twenty five.

Classes V and VI visited Anantasaram located at Yeoor near Thane. The children were informed about the various medicinal trees such as Amla, Reetha and others used in shampoos. The children were then taken to a village to see the village life.

Classes VII, VIII and IX went to the Sanjay Gandhi National Park via Thane, Yeoor. As they entered the park, they were asked to be quiet as their voices could be heard to a radius of one kilometre in the forest and alert the animals. Children were divided into three groups. In the park there were many boards that described the various birds, flowers and animals. The children were fascinated as they walked in the park.

All the students had fun, and learnt something new about nature.
