Teaching-learning process should not be restricted to the four walls of the classroom. It should go beyond that. The teacher and the taught feel handicapped at times when certain informations and experiences are to be provided. Therefore, Educational Tours or field trips help to achieve this objective and should be included in the teaching programmes. In this connection, the DIET, Saiden had organized an educational tour to the main reservoir and pumping station of the Greater Shillong Water Supply Scheme and Sacred Grove at Mawphlang on the 24th Nov.2005. The teacher-trainees gathered a lot of first hand knowledge and experience of the places they had visited.


Christmas is a Christian Festival which is celebrated by the world over. The DIET, Saiden had also organized a Pre-Christmas Celebration on the 19th of December 2005, where the Principal, the Lecturers and the Trainees celebrated together.
