Outward Bound

Travel is an essential part of learning and students are escorted on educational tours to many parts of the country and overseas. The entire school moves out on trips and treks after the Annual Examinations. At other times, smaller groups undertake specialized educational tours to places of historical, scientific and geographical interest.

  • Adventure sports form an important part of the School curriculum. The School is able to take advantage of its splendid location in the foothills of the Garhwal Himalayas.

  • Once a year, a summer trek is arranged to places deeper in the mountains for the benefit of those girls who wish to participate in serious trekking. The planning and execution is the responsibility of the girls themselves, advised by a Staff co-ordinator.
