In order to enable the children of Orchids The International School – Mysore Road, a top ranked school next to the SMV Layout, to have the experience of rustic life, a one day picnic was planned for our students from Grades I-VIII. The trip included about 138 students from all the grades visiting the Grameen camp situated in Nelamangla. The students, along with the teachers reached the venue at 10:00 am and were greeted by the volunteers in the camp. They were first provided the morning breakfast.
