Thidanadu: A group of selected students from the Government Vocational Higher Secondary School here got a rare opportunity to enjoy a cruise, thanks to the efforts of some former teachers of the school.
Thirteen students, selected on the basis of their academic and extra-curricular performance, set out on the cruise on Tuesday along with the retired teachers. The students were accompanied by parents and representatives of Parents and Teachers Association and they were led by the school principal Jayasree.
Most of the students, who have never been aboard a ship before, were all excited to experience the wonders of the ocean. The voyage commenced from Kochi.
Last year, the same team of former teachers had arranged a flight trip to selected students.
Those who were members of the 1985-86 SSLC batch of the school had presented the school with printer and a photostat machine. Anil Krishna and Dr Vasudevan Nair, two alumni, had also presented the school with a public address system.
