Students Explore the Post Office and Railway Station Administration

The youngest students of our school, i.e. Nursery and Kindergarten kids visited the Post Office while the students of Class 1-5 visited the Railway Station. At the Post Office, students explored the journey of a letter. They looked at how the letters were received and sent. While the students who went to Railway Station started out their trip with a train experience by sitting inside the compartments. Later they were shown how the train tracks and signals were operated. All in all, the students learnt a lot and their curiosity was satisfied.

Close to Nature – Tree Plantation

Planting trees connects children with nature and shows them that their hard work makes a difference in the world. Trees are a small environmental investment that will pay dividends for decades to come. Our nursery kids took an active role by teaming with their teachers to plant trees in their school premises.
