Delhi Public School Srinagar organised a three night and four-day trekking camp on June 18th to June 21 to the fabled Tarsar lake near Pahalgam. Straddled between Aru and Sind valley, the lake is located at a breath-taking 3900 metres. Fifteen students from class 12th accompanied by two trek leaders from Haryana and Rajasthan, two local guides and ablest coach Mr Tejinder Singh. During the trek, the students were educated about different herbs, water bodies and glaciers enroute. The students had a blissful time, as they not only enjoyed to the fullest but also learnt techniques of trekking, life skills and acclimatised themselves to being in the bower of nature, without the distractions of cell phones and obsessive connectivity.
Speaking on the occasion, the Principal Shafaq Afhsan said, “Our endeavour at DPS Srinagar is to train students not just in academics, but instil in them life skills that trains them for life. The successful completion of the trekking expedition points out that we are on the correct route as our students seem to have got a good grasp of life.”
