The staff of St. Agnes’ High School enjoyed a fun filled and memorable picnic to Khandala on the 15th and 16th of December 2017.
The staff began their journey at 8:00 am from the school campus and headed towards Khandala. The staff stopped briefly at the Convent of Jesus and Mary at Khargar where they could interact with the staff and students there and toured the campus. We arrived at Zara’s Resort in Khandala and were treated to some refreshing breakfast. The beautiful resort and the surrounding were relaxing. The team from Adventure Tours organized an engaging session of games, which was enjoyed by all. The innovative game of Housie was great fun too.
The teachers were treated to a sumptuous lunch after which we had some time to relax and enjoy the resort. Many teachers enjoyed playing games like badminton and cricket as well.
Some of the staff returned to Mumbai in the evening while some stayed back at the House of Prayer at Khandala. The beautiful campus and natural surrounding were truly relaxing. The teachers enjoyed the games organized by a few Primary teachers. The next day many staff members enjoyed the fresh and cool atmosphere as they walked around the campus. The staff visited Lonavala where they stopped at the Bushi Dam and enjoyed shopping at the local market, buying the famous ‘Chikki’ and Fudge.
The picnic aimed not only at relaxation but also building up team spirit among the staff members. The memories of the picnic will linger on and enable the staff to work together with the spirit of oneness.
