Of Places, Venues, and Destinations
The educational field trip is one of the much-awaited activities in school. The places and venues to be visited are deliberated by teachers and the administration and a shortlist of the top choices are laid down for choosing. They bear in mind the purpose or objectives of the fieldtrip. In some schools, the students and their parents are consulted as to their preferences from the shortlist. After choosing the destinations for the field trip, the transportation and fees are settled. These field trips are intended to be educational, and to deviate from what this is to defeat their purpose; thus they become insignificant undertakings, a waste of time and money.
