The skilled guides of our school had an exciting and adventurous experience during their annual Trekking trip to Yercaud. From Bungee jumping from the sky, gliding through the cool wind in a zip-line, cycling in mid-air to walking on wobbly pieces of wood on a rope course and much more. They did it all with ease in an adventure park. A short trek to the Elephant Mountain added to their thrilling day. The trip was also a learning experience based on team work, endurance and independence.

The Sacred Heart Guide Company provides a non-formal education programme that is dynamic and flexible while offering value based training in life skills, decision making and leadership.

All the activities the girls do, from weekly meetings, to camps, to expeditions and hikes are driven by the girls themselves with input and assistance from their leaders and are planned to match the abilities of the girls.
