The Award in Action - Drishti Malhotra from Cambridge International School, Phagwara

 With a pleasant weather, November 2022 was a good month for an Adventurous Journey. A joyful trip full of new experiences, knowledge and learnings was organised by our school for Award Participants of The International Award for Young People, India!

Exams are often boring ; a trip and travel activity from the school was something that refreshed our minds. It was a 2 day trip to Rocksport, Rajpura. There is a lot to speak about this place. We reached Rajpura by noon and from the very moment, we
started living the adventurous life like never before!
Some activities that we were part of were – Wall Climbing, Poetry, Zip Line, Rifle Shooting, Tug of War, Treasure Hunt and many more. After we were done with our activities on the first day, we tightened up our shoes for the DJ and enjoyed warm bonfire with music.
At night, we slept in tents and had a morning call at 6:00 a.m. We took part in activities and were on the way back to our homes. If we talk about meals, they were hand-licking, and delicious and were provided to us in plenty of amount.

“Age is no barrier when it comes to travelling.”

There was a lot to learn from this place. We learned about different mountaineering / adventure gears that we should carry when going for real adventures. I also made new friends! A place where discipline and rules were something necessary with neat and tidy environment. The instructors there were very polite and friendly ; they supported us throughout. This all was nothing less than an enthusiastic trip. It was a moment which gave us the chance to spend time together with our peers and teachers. I thank my school and the whole IAYP team because of whom I got a chance to enroll myself in an adventurous activity like this!
