ISM INTERNATIONAL AWARD SCHEME TREKKING EXPEDITION – 2015.
Indian School Muscat, in collaboration with ‘Adventure Oman Club’, organised Trekking Expedition for the participants of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Scheme, on Saturday 24 October 2015. The team comprised seventy five members including students of ISM senior section, the members of Adventure Oman Club and over a dozen senior section teachers.
The team embarked on this thrilling trek from Riyam Park following the Geo-Trek trail converging at Mutra Souk. At 5.45 A.M the team gathered at Riyam Park Mutra Muscat and started-off crossing the Geo-trail, enjoying the nature’s wonders that surround the mighty mountains. The team experienced the synergy as they inched through the tricky, rocky, and sharp slippery mountains. The tempting landscape of Mutra Cornishe that stretched behind the trekkers and cool breeze from ocean relieved the team from the sultry summer of Muscat.
This award programme, intended to equip young people for life and work, includes three levels viz., Bronze, Silver and Gold and four sections each. Participants need to complete all four sections at each level in order to achieve their award. Through this programme the awardees equip themselves with skills and experiences that are consistently recognized by employers and educational institutions. They are made capable of challenging themselves and discover the world around them. The award enables them with a world perspective. These young people make positive changes to their lives and communities by participating in the award. The programme focuses on certain key areas where young people’s development is lacking, and resolves to create a frame of mind that would be a ‘do-it-yourself kit in the art of civilized living’.
Much to the trekkers’ delight, trekking through the calming, breath-taking panoramic views and climbing atop the adjoining thresholds of the caves, was challenging but worth the pains. It was the real-time for the lens’ men to execute their skills as it was a charming sight to behold. Atop the winding hill-tops with the wonderful vistas of the lush valley and the live villages around thrilled the trekkers to the core.
The team members thanked the members of Adventure Oman Club, Principal Mr. Srinivas K Naidu and Senior Vice-principal Mr. Deep Wilson, Asst.Vice Principal Mrs. Geeta Chauhan and the teachers for their consummate support in making the expedition an unforgettable one.
