Trip to Forganic Farm
Students of the High School and Middle School visited the Forganic farm on the Pali-Khopoli road that practices organic farming of paddy, fruits and various types of medicinal plants. The bus departed from school at 7:30 with the keen students. Breakfast was served on the bus. At the farm, students were first oriented on the benefits of organic farming and their day-long activities. These activities included soft archery, crossing a Burma bridge, rope climbing, trekking through the forest trail, fishing and paddy farming. While carrying out these activities, the students were constantly given information about various plants with unique benefits, shown the preparation of compost, told about the various organisms that help in organic farming and the making of ink from leaves. Students were served hot lunch at the farm and tea and snacks before they left for school. Being the first trip after the lockdown, students enjoyed themselves immensely and learnt life skills in the process.

The welcome song and dance performed by the students dressed in the shades of the French Tricolour created a perfect ambience. All the students from Grades 3 to 12 were treated to some intelligently crafted interactive games and delectable French cuisine.
The spirit of CAS was promoted through this event.
