DREAM THAT BECAME REALITY THROUGH SWEAT AND DETERMINATION.
There could be no better way to commence the ongoing Experiential Learning Programme for Grade
VI rather than allowing the students to harvest their own crops and reap the result of the hard work
done by them. Hence, as part of an experiential learning programme, “Are You Going To Eat That?”, the students
of SC-VI went to Mikirbheta, Morigaon on 1st February 2020 for harvesting potato and mustard crop.
The two crops were sown by them in the month of November 2019.
It was a thrilling experience for the children as they learned about two different techniques used to
harvest Potato and Mustard crop. The kids dug into the soil to discover the treasure hidden in it and
they were thrilled to see how their seeds have given rise to such huge potatoes. They were trained
by the farmers and later the farmers also used a plough to help the children in the process of
harvesting. The students also harvested mustard
and kept it in the field for drying. We were able to harvest 600 Kgs of Potatoes and all the children
were allowed to take their share back at home to relish it with their family. And at last, the most
memorable day ended with soiled hands, dirtiest clothes, a big smile, lots of learning, wonderful
experience of lifetime and lots of potatoes with us.
