Staford School,Hardoi Road Branch organized a field trip for Grade I to IV students to a nearby Kakori Railway Station. All the students were excited .The purpose of the visit was to acquaint the students with the transport facility used by most of the people in our country. It helped the pupils to get hands-on experience to observe how people travel. The pupils observed the ticket counter, canteen, the indicators displaying the time and name of the trains, waiting rooms available on the platform for passengers and the guard who waves the green flag or the red flag as a signal for the engine driver etc. They also observed different types of trains i.e., passenger trains and freight trains.The children were taken around the station, and were asked to listen to the announcements being given. They read the schedule boards for the trains that were arriving. They were then taken on the overhead bridge from where they enjoyed observing the trains that were waiting on the platforms.
The trip was planned to make them aware about the most commonly and cost-effective means of transport used by the present generation. Overall, it was a fruitful learning experience for the students.
