“Experiential learning develops skills and competencies of students, making them holistic, life-long learners. It empowers them with the tools to convert information and knowledge into requisite skills that could be employed for success in their professions”.

“Do not keep children to their studies by compulsion but by play”, said Plato and his words still ring true.

In cognizance with the above thought, PODAR PEARL SCHOOL, Meshaf Campus organized an excursion to Kidzania on 15th, 16th, 20th ,21st and 22nd February 2023 for its primary department which is a unique and interactive indoor theme park. It gives a real- life experience to kids through role-play activities. All the students from classes 1 to 5 enjoyed the tour to this theme park. By blending reality with entertainment, it provides an authentic and powerful development platform where the students explore and learn about the real- world occupations. Students enjoyed understanding about real-world occupations in private services, public services, entertainment industry, airline industry and other sphere of life. Students played the role of pilot, doctor, chef, firefighter, and many other professions with full gusto.

The students returned to school with wonderful memories to share with their parents. The excursion strengthened in them the value for dignity to labour. In addition, this trip enabled them to appreciate the contribution of each member of the society and made them reflect upon the challenges faced by each working individual in the real- world.
