        CLASS V HERITAGE WALK (30-31 OCT 2018)

        The children of Class V were taken on a Heritage Walk to Gandhi Smriti on 30 & 31 October 2018, during school hours. Gandhi Smriti holds significance as the place of martyrdom of the 'Father of our Nation', Mahatma Gandhi.

        The building which houses a museum is the Birla House, dedicated to Gandhiji, showcasing his contributions and involvement in India's struggle for freedom. The two rooms where Gandhiji spent the last 144 days of his life have been preserved carefully for people to see and understand the simplicity and greatness of a humble leader. The children were in awe of the great leader and his lifestyle. In the rear lawns is the Martyr's Column marking the exact spot where Gandhiji was assassinated by a fanatic. The children paid solemn tribute to 'Bapu' while reading Gandhiji's last words, 'Hey Ram', inscribed on the pillar. 

        They were pleasantly surprised to see various Science exhibits too and tried their hand on some working models. The Heritage Walk proved to be an enriching experience and a valuable lesson for life, as Gandhiji always maintained- ‘Simple life and high thinking’. The visit also proved to be of great relevance to them academically as this was an activity to introduce the topics, on Mahatma Gandhi, soon to be covered in their syllabus.
