A dream come true!!!
Meeting our favourite author always makes us ecstatic. It happened so on 28 November 2019 at Crown plaza, Adayar park when we met the living legend Mr. Ruskin Bond, the great author, essayist, short story writr, poet of all times. The session with Mr. Bond, organized by Ratna sagar publications made our day fulfilling with a sense of pride, joy and satisfaction. Mr. Bond bonded well with the students and educators and captivated each of them through his humorous sense. A few excerpts from his genres were discussed to retell the amusing events that happened and commemorate the birth of the hallmark characters. His anecdotes made us understand that he’ s a person next door not far away from us. No wonder he’ s children’ s favourite! The living legend deserves a big salute for rendering us beautiful creations which leave us spell bound.
SRMPS had organised an educational field trip for grade 3 students to the farm house at Potheri and Maraimalainagar on 13th November 2019 to enhance their learning experience on the concept ‘The plant fairy and Flying High’.
The visit to the farm house gave a better understanding as well as it was an experiential learning. One of the resource person explained in detail about the types of plants and different breed of animals. The students interacted and arised number of questions to them. This was an unforgettable experience as the students enjoyed a lot.
A field trip to Dakshinchitra (“a living museum of art, architecture, crafts and performing arts of South India”) was arranged for the students of Grade IV and V on Wednesday, 13th November 2019. Children were awestruck by looking at the traditional culture of Tamilnadu, Andra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala. This exhibit took them back in time to relish and to live life of the Dravidians in the ancient time.
Children were taken on a tour through various houses at Dakshinchitra, the need for things in the various houses were well explained. They learned about different kinds of houses including Weavers’ and Potters’. Watching the potter making pot by just molding the clay on a wheel was indeed a learning experience for them.
The most exciting part of the field trip was the shadow puppet show. It was a memorable journey for all our students.

In continuation of our “Animal Kingdom” day, wherein our children had extended learning through various activities and displays of animals in different forms, our tiny friends from the Pre-KG had an animal parade on 6th November 2019 at SRMPS premises.
The animal parade was with a message to save the animal kingdom, save nature and earth. The tiny tots who are the upcoming generation had been taught the importance of Animals as a part of this world and our responsibility towards taking care of them.
They went on a parade around the campus wearing different animal costumes and making the sounds of the respective animals. They visited many classes and showcased their learning about different animals. They had a lot of fun and gained laurels and applaud from their audience.
