The youngest students of Junior School went on another field trip. One group visited the Head Post office while the other group visited the Railway Station, both located in Coimbatore.

At the post office, students explored the journey of a letter. They looked at how the letters were received, separated and the importance of the address and pin code. They also got a chance to see the philately section where they feasted their eyes on stamps of various sizes and shapes.

The students who went to the Railway station started out their trip with a train ride! Once they reached the Coimbatore station they were whisked away to the control rooms where they were shown how the train tracks and signals were operated.

All in all, the students learnt a lot and their curiosity was satisfied (not completely of course!)
