Silvassa - A land of heavenly beauty and charm

After the hectic examination phase, it was time to rejuvenate by experiencing something new and joyful. Advancing on the same line, the students of class 5 and 6 seized the pleasure in their outing from 9th October to 11th October 2013. The trip started on 9th October at 8:00 am in a bus towards Silvassa. It is a tiny dot on the map of India, which is a capital city of Dadra and Nagar Haveli, a union territory of India.

Treat Resort which is about 125 km from Surat was the tour’s destination. It is spread over 24 acres of land and is the best among the luxurious hotels located at Silvassa. Throughout the journey students and teachers enjoyed with full joy and pleasure by dancing, singing and playing cards. On the way, towards this resort a halt was taken near Valsad for some refreshments.

At about 12:30 pm, as soon as the students arrived at their destination, the resort staff gave a warm welcome by offering a chilled welcome drink. The first sight of the resort itself conveyed the later proven fact that it was a heart touching and an attractive place. It was surrounded by colourful fountains and tall coconut trees, in a natural habitat of lush green forest which makes it a popular spot for relaxation of body and peace of mind as well a destination for adventure sports.

The students were guided towards their rooms for freshening up. The rooms were surrounded by a garden, and lake view with balcony and a small private garden attached to it with a royal look, made every child feel special about himself. The rooms were full of comfort and well equipped with all the modern facilities at the service.

The freshening up was followed by a yummy lunch served in the dining hall that energised them for the upcoming activities during the rest of a day. After taking some rest, the students enjoyed splashing in the swimming pool located in the hub of nature.

The delicious supper was served with tasty starters followed by the heavy main course and delectable ice creams. Still the day was nowhere near its end yet as the most important event was waiting for the kids and that was the Navratri celebration in the resort’s discotheque. The students enjoyed dancing with music and played garba to their heart’s content.

The next day began with a delicious breakfast. The most awaiting fun was about to approach in the form of Water Park. Students enjoyed zooming down the towering slide on a mat, or, twisting themselves through the twisting slides, or, grabbing a tube and experiencing a spin like one is stuck in a cyclone, or, a relaxing trip around a lazy river. Students passed through the thrilling rides and discovered the excitement and the fun hidden inside. The only halt in the day was for a lunch, otherwise, the adventure continued in the Water Park.

Returning back from the Water Park and having snacks in the evening, students enjoyed playing, roaming or taking rest in the lap of nature.

The game Housie was played at the end of the day where the magic of numbers was experienced, and the flow of music with time was enjoyed by playing the musical chair. At last, the small token prizes were gifted to the winners of both the games. Now it was time to relish the mouth-watering dinner. After completing the dinner, students enjoyed watching a cricket match in the conference room.

By the effective planning of the management and staff, each student was paid the utmost attention and was served with care and concern. At last, the students returned school happily carrying with them the most memorable moments and a nonstop dose of play and enjoyment.
