Battling The Kargil War

The Kargil War, also known as the Kargil conflict took place in Kargil, Kashmir 19 years ago and went on for 3 months from May to July in 1999. The cause was the infiltration of Pakistan Soldiers on the Indian side of the Line of Control (LOC) and the capture of The Tiger Hill. The Pakistani military taking the advantage of the terrain, climatic conditions and positioning themselves on key positions attacked, assuming that their strategy will act as a weakness for Indian military, but the Indian Army overcame their strategies and launched “Operation Vijay” which was declared successful on July 26, 1999, and is celebrated as Vijay Diwas. The Victory came with the martyr of 527 soldiers.

“Tiger Hill” was again  a dominant feature of the mountains of Kargil, which has seen one of the bloodiest wars that India has ever fought.  The humongous mountain at an elevation of 5,307 meters in the territory of India was infiltrated by both the Pakistani army and terrorists 19 years ago. This resulted in one of the deadliest wars in the history of India. Although the war was eventually won due to the courage of the Indian army, wherein Yogendra Singh Yadav played a major role. The Heritage School - North Campus, Best CBSE School in Dehradun, keeps alive the memories of such brave soldiers in the minds of our students, as we believe that these stories provide inspiration to our students.

The Soldiers who fought in the war are called The Heroes of India. They are the true heroes who inspire the youth to do something for our country. We at The Heritage School North Campus as one of the Top CBSE Schools in Dehradun, encourage our students to be brave enough just like our Indian Soldiers and face  every challenge with courage and conquer their fears.

Experiencing What We Read in Books

Knowledge can be found at every corner around us, be it books, flora and fauna, nature and our surroundings. We just need that insight to learn what our surroundings are trying to teach us. Students should be taught about their surroundings. We being one of  the Best Dehradun Schools believe, nature gives us practical knowledge, something which leaves a long-lasting impact. This is why we encourage field trips. Books give students theoretical knowledge and field trips make them practically sound. Field trips help students to experience what they read about in books. There are various types of field trips like science field trip, history field trip, environmental field trip, cultural field trip and fun field trip.

Each trip has its own significance and learning. Where a science trip makes students experience the magic of science live, historical trips help them to visit historical places and see the wonders of our history. An environmental trip makes the students aware of their environment while a cultural trip illuminates them about their and other students’ culture. This helps in boosting their friendships and makes them stronger socially. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” and so to rejuvenate our students’ energy we take them on a fun-filled ride. These trips help them to relax and make their bonds stronger.

Another important factor of these trips is that they give students a better understanding of what they read in books. When they visualize a certain process, it gets retained in their mind. They will remember it through their experiences. Field trips also encourage students to think further and develop their concepts related to it. Studies show that students who visit places they read about in books and practical experience the contents of their study, perform better. This is what reflects in our students.

At The Heritage School – North Campus, one of the top 10 schools in Dehradun, we encourage our students to explore the world because the world out there is full of wisdom and enlightenment.
