Listening to music makes their burdensome thought and heavy-heartedness lighter and refreshing. Apart from it, students should be taken to trips—picnic, excursion, outing, etc. for their refreshment. While on Edu-trips, students come to know about many things that pertain to their subjects such as history, geography and science, etc.
