School trip and excursion are interchangeably used in educational literature. But in strict sense they are different. An excursion is school journey involving any organised travel made by teachers and students primarily with an educational motive in mind. School trips are organised visits of teachers and students to immediate or distant places to enrich learning experiences and to further instructional purposes of regular classroom activities. The school trip is distinguished by its concentration on learning particular aspects. Hence the success is judged by the fulfillment of pre-determined goals.
Education is not confined to classroom teaching. Life in the classroom can cover only a small part of our total life. If learning is to result in the total development of the learners, must go beyond our school walls in to the community as students and as working participants. The main purposes of school trip is to give students first hand experiences that cannot be had in the classroom. Students can see things hear things, handle things, and can examine them minutely. Hence school trip is an outdoor lesson in action. Many objects and phenomena can be studied best in their natural setting . School trip provide opportunities for learning through the use of many techniques other than in the classroom with the community, it develops better social awareness and social skills development in pupils. In fact school trip provide enough raw materials that would promote of senses, knowledge, emotions and skills.
Advantages in taking a school trips
Enhances the Curriculum
One of the biggest advantages to school trips is that they allow students to have a real-world experience. This experience should clearly illustrate and enhance information taught by the curriculum. For example, a textbook lesson on the life cycle of a salmon can be enhanced by a trip to a local salmon hatchery, where the students can clearly see the salmon in its many life stages.
Advantage of school trips is that they are a way to bring the students closer together. Many school trips combine educational content with team-building activities, such as working together to clean a stream that has been polluted. In fact, it is often a good idea to go on school trip early in the school year to help create a bond between the students.
Disadvantages of taking school trips
Although school trips are sometimes subsidised by the school, there is often an expense associated with the activity that is the responsibility of student's family. The reality is that there are families that can barely afford to send a healthy lunch to school with their children, never mind pay for a school trip. This can be an awkward and uncomfortable situation for both student and teacher.
Evaluation of the Effectiveness of school trips in teaching...
School trips can be defined as a type of experiential learning that get students out of the traditional classroom setting into a new mode of learning.
1: Increases knowledge on social responsibility and current issues
2: Provides ideas of future environment

The majority of families we support are struggling financially to purchase new school uniforms for their child/children. They are also already struggling to put food on the table, never mind having to go and buy all new clothes, bags, coats, shoes, and stationery for the new school term.
Our aim is to support children back to school well equipped, with well fitting new clothing to fit in with their peers.
The parents says that the support we provide alleviates a lot of stress and is a great resource. Without the provision they would be unable to equipped their children with everything needed for going back to school.
It can be really expensive for parents to buy new school uniforms, new shoes, bags, coats, socks and school supplies, especially if they have more than one child to buy for.
We have a lot of working families who come asking for school uniforms and school supplies help for their children.
We relies on kindhearted members of the public to donate both new and good quality second-hand items to help relieve the burden on families.
