The Annual Study Tour of 2023 to the Pubail Socio Cultural Centre (PSCC Resort) was a great success, and we are grateful to all the participants who made it possible. One of the organizing students recounts the event,
"The sun shone brightly, and the weather was perfect for a picnic. All the members came to the bus stoppage within the reporting time. Then we started for our desired place on time. On the bus, we all sang, danced & enjoyed ourselves to the fullest.
We found a lake on the spot as we arrived at the resort. Then we collected our food coupons. Breakfast was served. The foods were delicious and refreshing on such a warm day.
After finishing our meal, we decided to stroll around the resort. We explored the beautiful gardens the playground, and played in the swimming pool, and even rented a paddleboat to go out on the lake. We laughed, chatted, and took many photos to remember the day. Then lunch was served. After lunch, We played some games (cricket, football, marble race, save your balloon) and enjoyed the cultural program with beautiful scenery. As the sun was about to set, we packed up our things and left the place feeling rejuvenated and grateful for the lovely day we had just experienced.
Overall, it was a great day filled with good food, company, and laughter. Looking forward to having another picnic like this soon!"
