In today’s time, being flexible, innovative, and universal, are challenges that a budding corporate executive faces. While scoring is necessary to participate in the race, the actual need is sustenance and excellence. Focusing on this aspect, Nrityanjali Education and the Open Forum for Principals had organized a “Students’ Study Tour”.

The Students’ Study Tour was planned annually since 2012, and helps students develop confidence, thinking aptitude, and creativity for a brighter and progressive future. These tours had earlier covered Switzerland, Germany, USA, and Canada, and this year’s tour—in South Australia—was hosted by Banksia Park International High School (BPIHS), Adelaide, for seven days from 25.03.2019 to 31.03.2019.

21 students of Ryan Group International had enrolled for this study tour, which was designed to give them an interactive learning experience at the campus of the host school, facilitated by educators and buddies that were introduced to the group. Ryan students also experienced the culture and lifestyle of Australian families by staying with them. The idea of such an experience was initiated by Dr. Snehal Pinto, Director – Ryan International Group.

The buddies welcomed the Ryan group with a special gift, a Kuala Bear, handed a map of the campus to each of them, and accompanied them to attended regular classes. The next day, the group was taken on an excursion to the Adelaide Hills where at the Gorge International Park, the group experienced holding a Kuala in their hands, and later, feeding kangaroos. The group then drove to the Big Rocking Horse and were awarded a certificate of appreciation for climbing to the top of Rocking Horse. Students also visited Whispering Walls that excited them to have a normal conversation even though both groups were far away from each other.

The next two days, students experienced regular classroom sessions along with special session on Aboriginal history, Aboriginal painting, Computer Animation, Dramatics and Music. Students prepared their own souvenirs during the technical session.

A special presentation was planned and presented by the Indian students in the honor of Mayor Kevin Knight and as a farewell for their buddies from BPIHS. The programme was a combination of speeches on India, Democracy in India, the five living inspirations of today’s India, about Ryan International Group, and a Bhangra dance by the students of Ryan International School, Kharghar. Master Kunaal Kotak, student of Ryan International School, Malad, conducted a game which was played and enjoyed by all, including the Mayor himself. Dandiya moves with single sticks was introduced as an entertaining activity towards building concentration and creativity, which again witnessed active participation by the Mayor and the faculty members of BPIHS.

A special two-day tour to Sydney was arranged, before the group returned to India. Students visited the Sydney Tower, Opera House, Madame Tussauds, Sea Life park, Wildlife Park, the Blue Mountains and the “Three Sisters” point. The overall experience was a mix bag of joys, lows, excitement, hunger for more, dreams for a bright future, and a great learning.

Mr. Girish Dalvi, Director (Operations), Nrityanjali Group; Coordinator, Dept. of Child Development & Education, Govt. of South Australia; and Chief Administrator, Open Forum for Principals, India, was visiting Adelaide for the second time, and expressed happiness in seeing that Banksia Park School had designed a very interesting programme for Ryan students who could explore the science, art, logical and problem-solving skills during the visit. He especially appreciated the active participation and enthusiasm of Ryan students to excel in the activities and challenges they were offered.
