The annual science exhibition was conducted on the 7th of January. With over 200 exhibits by kids of classes 1st to 5th, the science exhibition was graced by parents and well wishers. A photo walkthrough of the exhibits below for your viewing pleasure.
The school arranged for an educational tour for students of classes 4th and 5th in the month of December 2012. The trip covered places in the district of Shimoga including Sringeri, Kupalli, Koppa, etc. Below is a first hand report from one of the accompanying teachers.
We were eagerly awaiting our school trip. Planned to commence at the dawn of 8th December, the children and teachers were brimming with excitement. When the bus moved they all yelled with joy. All the children settled in their seats and engaged themselves in Antyakshari – a song based game. Teachers also accompanied them. We reached Shimoga around 9 o' clock. We had our breakfast and resumed our journey towards the temple town of Sringeri.
We enjoyed the natural beauty of the Western Ghats on either sides of the road along the way. We saw tall trees, coffee plantations, deep gorges and curved roads. We reached Sringeri at 12 noon. We paid our obeisance to 'Sharadamba' the goddess of learning and the presiding deity. We came to know about the miracles that happened in that place and about Shankaracharya. Shankaracharya established the temple at Sringeri and propounded the 'Advaitha Siddhanta' (Advaita Philosophy). We also saw the river Tunga nearby and the bulky fish that have made the banks near the temple their home.. We had our lunch and moved to Sirimane waterfalls. A wonderful waterfall whose fullness brought joy to our hearts. We had a fun bath there, freshened up and continued our journey to Koppa.
In that shivering night, we reached Chittehalli Mallikarjuna Kalyanamantap. We had delicious dinner and went to sleep. The weather was very chill. Our next day commenced with a visit to Kuppalli, the native place of Rashtrakavi Kuvempu. We saw his home, some articles which he used, photo gallery which showcases his entire life, his awards, books and many more things. It was a thrilling experience.
Our excursion then took us to 'Ambuthirtha'. It is a place where the holy river Sharavathi springs to life. We also visited a Shiva temple in Shimoga on our way back. Children played there for some time. We finally drove back to Harihar with a heavy heart but wonderful memories of the trip.
