Trips & Excursions
At Devaki Memorial we organise many trips and visits off-site. As part of our curriculum, as well as for recreation and reward, these opportunities enhance learning and broaden boys’ experiences. We believe in the value of these out of school experiences which are always carefully planned, organised, supervised and evaluated, using a designated member of staff as an ‘Educational Trips Coordinator’. Elstree also looks to include trips and visits that are pertinent to a particular age and the curriculum.
