Residential trip to Taita

25 February 2023

During the midterm break, the Grade 6-8 residential students and the Grade 9 Exchange Programme students from the Aga Khan Academy Maputo and the Aga Khan Academy Hyderabad went on a trip to Taita where they cooked their own meals, spent the day hiking and pitched their own tents.

During the trip, students interacted with local communities and learned about their culture and way of life.The trip also provides an opportunity for students to bond with their classmates and develop social skills such as teamwork and communication. They work together to overcome challenges and support each other in various activities.

“The Taita trip is of the most memorable experiences of the exchange programme,” said Grade 9 student Jhashith Tulla from AKA Hyderabad. I learned that it is important to be determined as it was my first time hiking and even though I was extremely tired, I was able to push through till the end of the trip and it was worth it because of the beautiful views and scenery. also learned that when we work together as a group it becomes easier for us to perform well. I think the entire experience helped me learn to be a more open-minded and motivated individual.

The residential trip to Taita is a valuable learning experience that goes beyond the classroom. It provides students with an opportunity to learn about nature, culture, and the importance of conservation. It also helps to foster a sense of community and promotes personal growth and development.
