Educational Field Trips (National and International) and Excursions are undertaken annually and the students are very enthusiastic about this part of their school life at Chettinad Vidyashram. Students of classes I- VIII go on trips in and around Chennai accompanied by their teachers and non-teaching staff. These trips have inculcated in the students a spirit of teamwork and self-reliance.
Students from class IX to XII are taken to places outside Chennai both National and International. The success of each trip has only proved that the organisational skills of the teachers and co-operation from the parents and students have been of immense intensity.
The International trips began with Sri Lanka followed by Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, NewZealand, Australia, and nine European countries. The year 2012 saw 100 students accompanied by six teachers visiting the much awaited trip to NASA and Canada. This trip was exclusive and an amazing opportunity to experience the scientific enthralls of this sojourn. The students came back with information and experience much envied by many.
All the trips have only enhanced excellent student-teacher relationships with healthy growth in their academics and personality.
