“Those who don’t learn from the mistakes of the past are condemned to repeat them in the future.”

Our term began with the visit to the Mayo College museum in July. This is one of the largest museums in any school in Asia. The museum has a fascinating collection of items as wide ranging as skins of animals and birds- to guns and helmets used in world war-II. The museum displays a variety of gems, coins, stamps, an ancient world clock, pots, a suit of armour, weapons used in ancient wars and even a preserved human foetus!

In March 2012, the students of class 12 visited many monuments and museums in the mid-term trip to Kerala. They visited various museums displaying spectacular works of art by famous artists and painters like Raja Ravi Verma and many others. They also visited places of Portuguese rule and even rulers of Kochi. The students were also taken o visit the Mahabalipuram’s famous Shore temple and Five Rathas, which has been declared a heritage site was an amazing example of various forms of Indian architecture. The students also visited Dakshinachitra a place located 60 kms from Chennai, dedicated to keeping the culture of southern India alive. This place is an initiative taken by the government. This visit was full of colour, vibrancy, and a culture which seems to be getting lost and overshadowed somewhere in today’s world. The trip was inclusive of a visit to Swami Vivekananda Rock memorial and a view of the southernmost tip of India- the Kanyakumari.
