The students, teachers and staff members went for a picnic to Maa Bhattarika Temple on the banks of the river, Mahanadi. On the way, we visited the Simhanath Temple which is located on anisland on the Mahanadi River.The students and teachers chanted Mahishasura Mardini Stotram and Jagannathashtakam. All of us prayed to Devi for blessings and took prasad.

The children were highly ecstatic on the river banks and played with the water. They also visited Lake Ansupa.
