Expanding the horizons of knowledge
The care and concern shown for you by school authorities, while you were in school, will be fresh in everyone’s memories. Today is also no different. School authorities book special buses from bus companies when they have to take students out for various purposes, even when most of them have their own vehicles at their disposal. This is because their vehicles are limited in facilities. They want to give their wards additional luxury and comfort, when they are taken out for various purposes.
One of the main events that schools have to take students out is school field trip. It expands the horizon of knowledge and experience of students. School field trip is defined as a journey by a group of students to a place away from their normal environment. The purpose of the trip is usually observation for education, non-experimental research or to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going camping with teachers and class mates. For science related field trips the aim may be to observe various subjects in their natural state and possibly collect samples. Taking students to various destinations with cultural or historical attributes or various geological or geographical peculiarities, with the aim of edifying them is also a common practice.
If the group that has to be taken out has numbers of ten to fifteen or less than that, mini bus can be booked. If the numbers come to more than that charter buses may have to be used. Charter buses accommodate forty five to fifty persons. They come with entertainment facilities like music, video etc. Educational films can also be played, if so desired. Other facilities like air conditioning, extra leg room, push back seats etc. make the trip even more comfortable. Expert drivers come with the buses, which guarantee a safe and secure trip. These services come at an affordable price, is news of consolation for schools which operate on basis of meagre profit.
Bus companies try their best to be worthy of the faith posed on them by school authorities in providing a safe, secure and comfortable trip for their wards.
