Essay on “A School Excursion” Complete Essay for Class 10, Class 12 and Graduation and other classes.

A School Excursion

Last Saturday was a very fine day. The sky was overcast. We did not like to read on that day. We requested our teacher to arrange and excursion on a river. He granted our request. We started on our excursion.

The river is at a distance of four kilometers from our school. Our worthy teacher decided to go on foot. We all agreed to his proposal. We started  in happy mood. We had hardly gone two kilometers when we met another school party. It was a happy union. We went further happily and merrily.

We went on shouting out of joy. Some of us were singing merrily. Both the parties enjoyed the natural sights on the way. There came upon a welcome shower on the way. It made the weather good. On our way we met trucks and buses. Thus talking , laughing and singing we reached the river. We crossed the bridge and enjoyed the sight of water flowing rapidly.

We made small boats of paper and floated them on the surface of water. Both the parties separated to enjoy themselves. My party which consisted of sixteen boys crossed the river in a large boat and reached the other bank. Other boys selected a lonely place. While we were in the boat we heard a farmer boy singing a song. We kept on wandering  for some time to  enjoy sights. After two hours we returned to join our companions.     

At about 12 o’ clock we had our lunch with a great joy. We stole some fruits and vegetable from the fields and enjoyed them. In the evening both the parties played a Kabaddi match. When the match was going on, one of our companions entered the water to bath. As he went further, the waves swept him away. He cried for help. I , being a good swimmer, at once jumped into the  river and brought him to the bank. When he regained his senses, we were very happy.

Soon it was the time to return. We were again on the road for home. The sun in the west had grown more pleasant. So the return journey was more enjoyable. We came back talking and walking leisurely. It was quite dark when we were again in the school compound.

From school we started for our homes all glad at having a good excursion.
