Benefits of Field Trips in Child Education

 In Blog

Children who receive a well-rounded education during their school years tend to become responsible and informed global citizens. While learning math and English is important, it is equally essential for kids to receive a comprehensive education in the arts and be taken on educational outings. CGR International Schools give equal importance to both indoor and outdoor learning activities, thereby enabling children to broaden their knowledge about the world around them. Let us tell you why field trips should be given due importance and how they contribute to a well-rounded education. Let us tell you why field trips should be given due importance and how they contribute to a well-rounded education.

Real World Exposure:

Educational trips to historical and geographically significant places, such as museums, heritage sites, ecological parks, NASA convention centers, planetariums, etc., offer students the opportunity to visit places they may not have seen before. These field trips, especially when taken in groups of 50 to 100 students, provide a positive and educational experience in reality. Students can enjoy themselves together while also gaining a proper understanding of what they are learning in theory. They have the chance to observe new things and environments, which can broaden their horizons and enhance their learning experience.


Educational trips offer an opportunity for students to connect not only with their peers but also with the teachers and adults who accompany them in a new environment. These outings enable children to open up, socialize, and get to know each other better outside the classroom. Students collaborate with classmates they may not be familiar with for activities that require them to work together towards a given goal.

Learning through experience:

Educational trips offer students valuable personal experiences and teach them important life skills. Through these outings, students can enhance their problem-solving abilities by developing better decision-making skills, communication skills, and confidence. Overall, these experiences can be highly beneficial for a student’s personal growth and development.

Learn about local culture, customs, and language:

Traveling to various places on educational trips broadens a student’s outlook, changing their perspective on certain things and providing them with a better understanding of different cultures and customs. Learning about customs, languages, and cultures through firsthand experience is more enjoyable than gaining the same knowledge from a textbook. Additionally, in every new city, students encounter new culinary experiences which help them become more tolerant of others’ cultures.

Create Lifelong Memories with Friends:

Educational trips leave a lasting impact on students’ memories. Every moment, be it good, bad, or funny, from the inception to the culmination of the trip, gets imprinted in the students’ minds. Traveling imparts patience and tolerance to students, fostering the formation of lifelong friendships as they engage with peers and interact with fellow students.

CGR International School encourages students to learn through experience by exploring different places through field trips. During this field trips to Birla Planetarium, Rain Water Harvesting Theme Park, Masqati Diary Farm, Science Museum, Water Parks, and many more trips help students to learn and build their memories.
