Field Trips 2017-18
Field Trip to National Defence Academy
On 28th November 2017 the students of class 9 and 10 of S.B. Patil Public School were given a chance to visit the National Defence Academy (NDA) situated in Khadakwasla, Pune. It was a privilege for the students to witness an astounding ‘Passing-out Parade’ of the final year cadets in NDA.
Upon reaching, students passed through the entrance along with other visitors. The security at the entry gate was understandably strict. Then they proceeded towards the parade ground. The area was full of lush green surroundings and several buildings and structures.
Later, they walked to the Khetarpal Parade Ground. The discipline which could be sensed in the entire NDA premises was outstanding. Looking at the officers and the cadets, our students were totally charged with patriotism and discipline. The officers and cadets impressed everyone with their body language and dress code.
Then the most awaited event of the day arrived when the ‘Passing-out Parade’ began. The coordination of the cadets left them all awestruck. Their posture, swift movements and synchronization was very impressive.The head of the troop handed over the flag to the upcoming head.
Soon after, students witnessed a marvelous air show by the fighter planes of the air force. Then they assembled near the main library of the academy and left for the buses after a group picture. While returning, they saw miniatures of various warships and aircrafts.
During the trip, the most striking aspect was the discipline of the academy.
This was a very motivational trip for students as they learnt a lot about the training of our nation’s armed forces and took pride in the military strength of our country.
Know your Army Exhibition
On the 12th of August 2017, Friday, the PCMC along with BEG Khadki had organised an exhibition at H.A. ground, Pimpri. This exhibition was organised to showcase the latest technological advancements in the Indian Army's weaponry and ammunition. As S B Patil Public School also received an invitation, a group of 8th Std students from our school attended this informative and educative manifestation. The students were thrilled and enthusiastic while browsing through various types of military equipment. They got valuable insight into the techniques and ways, in which these kinds of technologically advanced munitions are used. Our school teachers Mr. Dhanaji Patil, Mr. Shrikant Deshpande, Mrs. Prutha Vaidya & Mrs. Sakshi Shinde accompanied the students to this exhibition. Overall it was an exciting and stupendous experience for the students.
