“THE DISCOVERY OF AGRICULTURE WAS THE FIRST BIG STEP TOWARD CIVILIZED
QMIS with an objective of enlightening the students on the significant role of agriculture, arranged for a field
trip to Kodikkulam paddy field.
The day began vibrantly for the lovable little ones of grade 2. The journey started by 10.30 a.m with cool
weather accompanying. They reached the farm in Kodikkulam at 11.30 am. Our children were spellbound
when they started exploring the paddy field as it looked like the land wrapped in green silk saree. The
blissful land also lent pleasant petrichor as a great treat for their olfactory system. The kids could feel the
vast disparity between urban and rural sides. Teachers of grade 2 illuminated the children on the sustainable
development goal “LIFE ON LAND” with the help of the farmers who are our real back bone of the country.
The teachers and the children had a delightful lunch amidst nature. The children of QMIS upgraded their
knowledge by acquiring deep insight about agriculture, farmers and their life. The children were able to
perceive the people behind their everyday food and the thanked them wholeheartedly.
It was really hard to bid good bye to that wonderful land. Children carried with them loads of sweet
memories and information to be shared to their parent and neighbours.
They understood that“Farming is not just a hobby; It’s a way of life”
