‘The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.’

We firmly believe in sowing the seeds of Wanderlust in our young, impressionable students. For, traveling is a kind of learning in its own way. Therefore, we organize various trips for our senior students every now and then. Our students visited the following cities in this year

One Day Trips

Varanasi is a hub of scenic locales and historic monuments. And we intend to make the most of the places which the city has to offer by taking our students for educational trips. Such trips provide authentic learning circumstances that challenge students beyond the four walls of a school. They are a stimulus for learning, a way to bring academic subject areas to life while offering physical challenges that promote personal and social growth. Through both academic outdoor learning and extended expeditions, SARA students develop lasting relationships with the natural world, while building resilience and leadership. The outdoor is an abundant educational resource that is a highly valued element of the SARA experience.

Industrial visits

In order to make our students worldly-wise and to give them a glimpse of how the outside world functions, we take them to different industrial visits.
Last year, the students visited Parle - G factory at Ramnagar and the Parag dairy at Ramnagar.
Their notepads were filled with all the valuable information and tips which they successfully gathered. These visits were fruitful in instilling the spirit of entrepreneurship in them.
