Our trip to the fire station proved to be the most excitingamongst all the field trips that we took the children. It was the culmination of our theme for that month – "People who help us". At the fire station, the children were shown different nozzles that are used to combat various types of fire. The children found it very exciting to interact with their heroes - the firemen. They showed the children how the hoses are stowed inside the fire truck. The highlight of the morning was the short ride in the fire truck. Meeting the firemen was indeed a dream come true for many of the children. The fire fighters were in turn rewarded with a big hug and a couple of songs in their honour. A happy lot returned to school with much to discuss!
