A Study Tour
The study tour is a part and parcel of knowledge and education. There are many sources of entertainment and tour is one of them. It gives us much pleasure and removes our monotony. It spreads the horizon of our minds and experience. Study tours play an important role in educating students in a practical and interesting manner. Our school organization study tour for us. I greeted this arrangement.
On the first day of our tour, we went to Mainamati and visited the Lalmai-Manamati range of hills, Shalban Bihar, Ananda Bihar, and the Museum. We found the museum decorated with bronze statues. They were the achievements of pala reign in Bangla.
On the second day, we reached Cox’s Bazar sea-beach. I was surprised to see the beautiful scenery of the sea-beach. The next day, we went to the sea-beach. We became astonished by the natural scenery of the sea-beach. We walked along the beach and enjoyed the musical murmuring sound of the sea. Swimming, horse riding, boat riding, photographing, etc. were very charming. The most attractive thing was to see the sunset. After seeing the sunset, we went to Cox’s Bazar town in the evening. We enjoyed everything very much.
We passed the next three days in the hilly areas of Rangamati and Bandarban and Khagrachari. We visited many tourists’ spots and gathered much knowledge. We returned home after three days. We climbed up several hills and from the top of the hills, observed the beauty and splendor of the hilly areas.
On the 6th and 7th day we visited Chittagong seaports and Karnafuli Electricity Project at Kaptai. These places also offered us much practical knowledge; experience and pleasure. After visiting these places we came to the conclusion that our country has really rich cultural heritage. The temples gave us the idea of a glorious past of Indian art and architecture. We gathered enormous knowledge during our travel.
There is no doubt that such tours have great educational value and there must such occasions in the life of every student. My study tour opened a new world before my eyes. It has deepened and broadened my knowledge. Students should also participate in such tours. For this, staff can give a brief on the places they are going to visit and the importance of those places. This creates curiosity in the minds of students. It was really a memorable study tour.
