Cycle expedition, mountain climbing, adventure trips in forests are some of the interesting activities for NCC cadets. This year a cycle expedition was organized in our school in which about forty students and five teachers took part. All the participants were asked to assemble in our school, by 6 A.M. sharp, with our cycles, food packets, kits, water bottles. Unusually all gathered at the school well in advance. After a short prayer, we were blesses by our Headmaster. He gave each one of us a packet containing biscuits, sweets and fruits. By 6.30 A.M. we left the school in small batches each under the care of a teacher. Being fresh and full of enthusiasm we had no difficulty in the first hour or two. During this time we visited the Muttukadu boat house, the crocodile and snake farms. We had our breakfast in the Government Tourist Home a few miles from Mahabalipuram. After resting for a while we reached Mahabalipuram. We left our cycles and our belongings to the care of our leaders and rushed to have a sea bath. We spent two hours on the beach. We were provided packet lunch by our school. We rested under the shade of trees. Some played card games, chess. After going round important places like "the Shore Temple, Arjuna's penance, light house, museum" we started our way back home. After five hours of cycling we returned to school by 9 P.M. anxious parents were waiting for us. After thanks giving prayer we broke off.
