Commerce students have an elaborate syllabus which includes details of working of various factories as well as the import and export process. To give the students of Commerce practical knowledge about the working of factories, the students of Class XI studying in Commerce stream were taken to an aluminium factory located at Kathwada. The students were introduced to the actual working of a factory and the many processes that go into creating the final product while ascertaining quality. They witnessed the recycling procedure of scrap aluminium into sheets that are cut and moulded to make aluminium vessels. The factory at Kathwada imports the scrap metal from Dubai and the final product, aluminium vessels, is exported top countries like Saudi Arabia, Kenya, South Africa and Dubai. The vessels are sold in Indian markets as well. Aluminium vessels are in high demand because they do not rust easily nor do they break. The metal is quite neutral and doesn’t react with the contents that are kept inside. The students were able to comprehend the factory process and also the import-export systems.
ROLE OF TECHNOLOGY – FROM A CHILD’S PERSPECTIVE
In the modern world of technology, computers play a vital role. In fact now one cannot think of a day without computers. Even children are aware about this but the real need for computers is not too clear. To give a practical experience to children of Class 1 about the need for computers in day to day running of the school, the computer teachers arranged an activity for them. The students were first explained about the role of computers and then they were taken to different sections of the school where computers are frequently used for proper running of the school. Each department explained the different uses of computers to the students.
Needless to say the children enjoyed this out of the classroom activity. They shared their experience with the computer too.
