    Fun trip to Goa

    Fun trip to Goa - Class IX, X, XI (27 Nov - 1st Dec)

    A memorable trip

    By Jane Jones, Class XI

    On 27th November, the students of classes 9, 10 and 11 set off on a long waited trip to Goa, eager and enthusiastic to have fun with our friends. After a night’s train journey, the wonderful smell of the sea welcomed us to Goa: our home for the next few days. 

    Our first glimpse of Goa was the beautiful Baga Beach, and we all ran right into the waves, soaking in the sun and the breeze and having the time of our lives. We later visited Fort Aguada, and had a nice time admiring the architecture and clicking lots of pictures. The next day, we visited the Calangute beach: some of us went on rides too and had a great time despite the heat. In the evening, we went on a boat cruise on the Mandovi river and danced our hearts out, while enjoying the performances on board. Our last day was more relaxed: we went to the market to shop for souvenirs - little things to remind us of this wonderful trip; and we visited the Mangeshi temple, taking in its serene atmosphere before setting off on our journey back home.

    The trip came to an end far too soon, but the fun we had and the memories we made are ones we will never forget and we’re all truly grateful for this wonderful experience we could wholeheartedly enjoy.

    Fun Trip to Goa

    Students of class VIII went on a fun trip to Goa from 13-10-2022 to 17-10-2022.

    A Trip to Remember

    By Sriya Vijayaraghavan , VIII A

     ‘A Journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’ I am sure that all of us have experienced the joy of travelling. This joy is surely doubled when we travel with our friends. I experienced this joy when our school took us, the students of class 8, on a fun trip to Goa.

    It was a wonderful journey. We left Bangalore at 3 in the afternoon on Thursday, 13th October. The train journey was really enjoyable, and we reached Goa the next day, at 4:30 a.m.  It was an hour’s journey to the hotel. Soon after breakfast, we set off to explore the wonderful sights Goa has to offer. Our first stop was Fort Aguada, a historic monument built by the Portuguese. We then visited Candolim beach and enjoyed the amazing view. We then went to the Baga beach where we had the time of our lives, playing and relishing a lip-smacking lunch, before heading to another beach. After our return, we had a karaoke and dance night along with dinner, and ended the day with a good night’s sleep, waking up fresh and ready for another wonderful day. Saturday held a lot of excitement for us: we visited the peaceful, white-sanded Miramar beach, and then the Dona Paula beach with its exotic views. We then stopped by a few churches and enjoyed an amazing sunset cruise and a dance party. On our last day, we checked out of the hotel and visited the Chapora Fort. It was hot and tiring but the view was one I had never seen before! We had Goan food and then went to the Anjuna beach, and were amazed by its breathtaking views. We then shopped for souvenirs in the Baga market. After dinner, we left for the railway station, with a lot of wonderful and unforgettable memories.

    Dussehra celebration 2022

    Dussehra: an important festival of Karnataka celebrating the victory of good over evil, was specially celebrated with great enthusiasm in KENSRI School. It was marked with a special ceremony commemorating an important milestone in a child’s life — the first words they write.

    The program took place in the midst of a beautiful arrangement of idols on a makeshift staircase, and began with a special Saraswati pooja, and an offering of flowers by the parents and teachers. This was followed by the ‘Vidyarambham’ ceremony, where each little child was made to write their first words in rice, with the help of their mothers. The parents were genuinely happy to see this tradition being kept alive, and expressed their joy and delight.

    This simple, yet special programme was but a glimpse into the rich culture and heritage of our country, showcased through each jubilant festival.

    Fun Trip to Dubai

    KENSRI organised an International fun trip to DUBAI for the Secondary students.

     

    Voyage to city of the future... Experience shared By Advay

    They say trips help to develop great friendships; well, this trip would be one of the best examples for this statement according to me :)

    This fun trip would surely be the most memorable 5 days of this year…
    Right from when the trip was announced, I was extremely excited, I hadn’t gone for a school trip since 4th grade and the news of an international trip with friends made it better!

    Fast forward 3 months, there was less than a day left for the trips and the buzz was immense. Exams were just over, so I could enjoy the trip very happily with everything set, I was ready to go…

    24th Sep-
    As the airplane was at 3:30 the next day, I had o be there by 12:00 IST. I didn’t sleep at all as I couldn’t wait to just set off. I was sure the next few days would be the best of all and I was very impatient.

    25th Sep-
    With the security, baggage and all the checking done, we were just hours away from setting off. We were waiting in the lobby in front of Gate-33 when the news struck- DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES, THE FLIGHT FROM BENGALURU TO SHARJAH HAS BEEN DELAYED BY AN HOUR AND FORTY MINUTES. THANK YOU FOR CO-OPERATING. How much longer could the wait get:’)
    The airplane, supposed to depart by 3:30 IST, was now delayed till 6:10 IST. The wait was finally over as we went off by 6:10 IST. After a small nap in the airplane, we were right above Sharjah, when the captain spoke- THE LANDING OF THE FLIGHT HAS BEEN DELAYED DUE TO THE FOG. How much longer could the wait get:’)
    After the long wait, the airplane finally landed at 11:00 GST in Sharjah airport. We were nearly 4 hours behind schedule, freshened up asap and started off with the city tour… phew finally ‘:D
    We saw many different buildings which were all unique in their own sense. This included the Burj-AL-Arab (the world’s only 7 star hotel), Golden Frame (made purely of 24 carat gold), The Future Museum (A museum in shape of a oval ring), Many of the king’s palaces and many more places which were just terrific.
    We stopped for lunch and after that reached the place, which I’d call the epicentre of the trip’s fun- Hotel Aloft.

    The fun started no less than an hour into the hotel as I got stuck in the elevator. The engineer had to be called and my friend, Vishnu, didn’t leave my presence at any cost and I managed to get out after 20 long minutes.

    After some refreshments and rest, we went down to the lounge to play some pool and foosball, after which we went for some good dinner. That wasn’t the end for this long and fun day, as some of us friends met-up in a room past dinner to have an amazing session of pillow fight before sleep :P

     26th Sep-
    If the previous fay felt long, this was the most memorable one. The second day, was when our besties’ group was formed…
    We woke up early and set off to a 2-hour trip to Abu Dhabi past some good breakfast.
    The Ferrari World theme park, our first stop in Abu Dhabi had to be the most memorable part of the whole trip.
    We first went in the world’s fastest roller coaster, literally running at 270 km/h. The ride took no more than 2 minutes but I enjoyed every second of it, so much so that I decided to go in it for a second time.
    This is when a group of 6-7 of us who barely spoke in school, went together in the ride for the second time and the rest was history, as we hanged-out together during the whole remaining trip.
    Back to the Ferrari world, well it’s a proud feeling to say that our crazy group was the only group to cover the most rides :D
    This included the world’s fastest roller coaster (twice)- The Prestigious Formula Rossa; one of the highest roller coaster- Flying Aces; A roller coaster which was barely 10 seconds, but the whole city was visible through it, - The Turbo Track as well as 4-5 more extremely fun rides. Yes, it was only our crazy group who were able to do so many rides. Though, this made us late for lunch, had to stuff on some burgers, fries and soda within 15 minutes to make sure we weren’t late.
    We then left Ferrari world with probably the craziest memories from the whole trip.
    We then went to the Grand Mosque. The interiors of which were extremely colourful and splendid while the view was amazing.
    Then we rushed to the Burj Khalifa, the queue even though was more than an hour long, the end was worth every moment of it. The view from 500m above the ground…nothing more than insanely marvellous.
    We came back to the hotel, had dinner and, the crazy group, stayed up till 3:00 GST probably before sleeping for less than an hour, because the third day, we were going to the beach early in the morning.

    27th Sep-
    With about 2 hours of sleep, we started off day three with an amazing time spent in the beach. Though, many couldn’t make it to the beach as they overslept, but ‘snoozers are losers’ they say :)

    After a good breakfast, we went for some shopping in the huge Dubai mall and then stopped for some refreshing lunch.
    After lunch we proceeded to what happens to be also one of the best memories in the trip, the desert safari.
    A topsy-turvy ride on the huge sand dunes, followed by some buggy rides over them (we were allowed to ride it by ourselves :D) had to be one of the best experiences of the trip. This was all finally washed up with some barbeque dinner and a whole lot of water and soda with some good dance as entertainment. Again… we stayed up most of the night, just talking and having fun.

    28th Sep-
    It was the final day before setting off to Bengaluru, we first went to swim in the roof-top-pool, which gave a fresh start to the day.
    Followed by some great breakfast, we went on a shopping spree, perhaps.
    After lot of shopping, we went for lunch and came back to the hotel to do the packing. The trip was slowly coming to an end:’
    We checked out of the hotel and went for high-tea while enjoying the cricket match along the while.
    At about 18:30 GST, we set off to the Sharjah International Airport. The way back was somewhat sad as we were leaving but surely filled with memories.
    The flight was scheduled to depart at 22:45 GST, before which our group ate a whole lot food (especially amazing donuts) and we set off back home. The city glowed orange and was very beautiful as seen from the airplane window while I slept throughout the journey XD

    29th Sep-
    At about 3:00 AM IST, our flight landed, after all the customs check, we finally made it out of the airport, back to homes, full of unforgettable and fantastic memories to cherish for long :)(:

    The students wished to surprise their teachers, and practised all weekend to give a wonderful performance - singing, playing instruments, and dancing their hearts out.

The beautiful melodies played by the brass band, the soulful singing, the enthusiastic conductors and the wonderful music they produced was altogether spectacular.

The poems are inspired by various people, occasion, and nature and seeks to find the light in every situation – the rainbow in every storm. She has pinned her thoughts through several poems which relate to all and has used the poetic form of writing to write on various subjects and occasions but always focusing on the goodness, greatness, and faithfulness of God. Her journey down this road all started when she was asked to pen her first poetry assignment by her English teacher, from that day onwards the sky was the limit. Her emphasis has been more on relationships like a teacher who imbibes value and knowledge from day one, next she speaks about the mother whose selfless service, love, care, and sacrifice are demonstrated felicitously. These are the 2 important pillars in our lives and her emphasis on how to find a friend who is loyal, honest and understanding is truly commendable.
