On Tuesday 31 May, Nalanda Free School organised a hiking trip for Secondary School students. The trip was led by the Free School Principal Sister Lee, with the assistance of 5 volunteer teachers. The aim of the outing was to provide students and teachers with opportunity to bond outside the classroom, with team-building activities to help them understand the importance of cooperation and teamwork.
The group of 20 left from Nalanda Centre for a hilly nature trail in Seri Kembangan early in the morning. Everyone enjoyed getting close to Mother Nature, taking in the fresh air, and being introduced to the flora and fauna in the wooded surroundings in a safe and healthy environment. They even collected rubbish along the path, leaving the trail litter-free for other nature lovers.
It was refreshing indeed to see youngsters enjoying themselves outdoors, without being obsessed with smart-phones and modern-day gadgets. Many thanks to the teachers, volunteers, and parents who made it possible for the students to go on this happy, healthy outing. Sadhu anumodana!
