Field trip is an integral part of teaching – learning process. It offers first hand experience of what students learn theoretically in classrooms.
This year, DGET School organized a filed trip for the Commerce students of classes IX, X XI and XII to two banks, namely, Syndicate bank and NKGSB bank.
On 24th December 2019, the students along with the subject teachers left from the school at 10.30 am. The first visit was to Syndicate Bank, Kasarvadavali, a nationalized bank. After a formation interaction between the bank staff and the students, the Branch Manager spoke to them in detail about home loan, educational loan, depository system, withdrawal system and most importantly, how cash transactions were carried out in banks in collaboration with RBI. The students were also instructed on the various government schemes which are executed through banks. The students enthusiastically watched over the process of locker facility system in the bank.
Next, the students visited NKGSB bank, Waghbil, a co-operative bank. The students were cordially welcomed by the bank staff. They were then given guidance on educational loan, mortgage system and working of ATM machines. Apart from those, the students were taught how to identify fake currency notes in the market. They were also made to spot the difference between a bearer cheque and a payee cheque and between a real and duplicate cheque.
The duration of each visit was for approximately 90 minutes and the students were brought back to school by 2.30 pm.
As said, practical knowledge is always better than theoretical knowledge. Here also, the students were interested to note down each and every point discussed by the bank officials. They showed a great deal of pleasure and gratitude towards the staff members of both the banks. Overall, the students came back with a lot of information which they don’t get exposure to on normal days.
