At the Deepika School we have students who have difficulties with reading and writing, some with very short attention spans and some slow learners. The conventional modes of teaching did not yield positive results, so we started out with a small endeavour in 2007. We took our students for a school tour to Andhra Pradesh to facilitate the learning of the Social Sciences and found that it had a tremendous impact on them. It brought about a complete transformation of personality. Students learned life skills, which are essential for a balanced outlook, they expressed more interest in the world around them, they were inspired by the grandeur of the monuments and sculptures built by kings of yore and came back with renewed zeal to pursue learning through textbooks. Walking into a field of crops of that region gave them first-hand experience of the geography of the country.
