Annual Excursion

Assalamualaikum and afternoon everyone !

The most anticipated day in 2013 school calender is finally here. It was very clear to see in the student's eyes that they were pumped and was so excited for the school trip. A whole day of fun cognitive learning outside the school environment, encouraging their use of language, stimulating their curiosity  and helping the student to form ukhwah, encourage a sense of responsibility, self-confidence, independence, self control and child’s consideration for others.

We made a few stops today. The 1st stop was at Domino's Pizza, where the children learn how to make a 'twister cheese bread' all by themselves, participate in games, becoming the food tester :) and even walked away with their very own personal pizza each! Simply fantastic.

Our 2nd stop was at the Sunflower Rice Factory. The children was divided into groups for the 'paddy to rice' talk, they were given a chance to feel the pre processed rice (paddy)  and even sampled some cooked rice. A packet of 500gm of rice was waiting for everyone at the end of the factory tour, alhamdulillah, more goodies to bring back !

The 3rd stop was the most awaited stop, it was the Ostrich Farm. They sat for a quick introduction of the ostrich farm , holding the huge ostrich egg and even had the chance to test the strength of the egg by stepping on it! There was also monkey show and  farm animal show & tell to entertain the students. Of course we kept the best for last, the ostrich ride and pony ride. Woohooo.

Before we know it, it was time for us to head back home. But before we head back to school, we had to make our final stop, Lunch . The children was excited as they can finally put the adap / decorum of eating in public into practice. They excel with flying colors !

All around, it was a fun day, the weather was beautiful, the student behave really well and everything went really smooth, alhamdulillah. Our gratitude to the very flexible trip operator , the hardworking teachers , the lively presenters and mostly the parents, for giving us the trust to make today excursion a success..
