Our school recently organized an educational-cum-fun tour to KidZania Mumbai, for students of Std 4 and 5. It was truly a wonderful experience.

The group actually visited three places i.e. Lion Safari and train ride at Vasai, KidZania at Ghatkopar and Silent Hills Resort at Manor.

On 20th September, we started the journey from school. Upon reaching Suvi Palace at Vasai, we got fresh and after lunch we headed to our first spot of Lion Safari and train ride. All students enjoyed very much despite there being a heavy downpour.

The next day, after our breakfast, we headed towards KidZania at R City Mall in Ghatkopar. It was a perfect combination of fun and learning. The various activities in KidZania were designed to aid in physical and intellectual growth, contribute to the development of skills and attitudes, stimulate creative thinking and boost self-esteem and self-confidence. On the third floor of the mall was a KidZania activity, where kids when entered, they are given some kidZos (KidZania currency), and using these kidZos they can play games in the establishment. If they went bankrupt, they had a chance to work and earn kidZos again and continue playing games. Also, if they are tired, the kids could also spend their kidZos on actual food stuff. There were 24 games in total. The activities taught the kids the values of hard work, discipline, etc. Towards evening, everyone was exhausted and headed towards the hotel. Before dinner the kids had an exciting round of dance with the DJ music till late evening. After dinner it was a pleasant and resting night time.

On the third day we headed towards Silent Hills Resort at Manor. All kids were ready with the costumes to jump into the water rides. They enjoyed till late afternoon. Thereafter, we had a delicious lunch and left back for our school. By 9.00 pm we were back already at Atmiya Vidya Mandir. The tour was truly a memorable one with lots of new experiences for the kids to cherish for a long time to come.
