Little Scholars Play School & Montessori House Organised a Joyous Tram Ride
News Desk, News Nation 360 : The authorities of Little Scholars Play School & Montessori House, Lake Road & Sarat Bose Road, organised a joyous Tram ride for the children of their school on 16th December 2022. The Tram Ride started from the Tram Depot World to Esplanade and was arranged into two slots. The First slot started at 9 a.m. and the other from 11 a.m. It was almost an hour and a half ride with children of age group 1.5 years to 4 years. There were more than hundreds of children included in this exciting nostalgic ride. A special yoga class was also arranged for the parents waiting at the depot. The tram system in the city of Kolkata is the oldest existing tram network operating in India and the oldest operating tramway in Asia. Starting in 1902, it is the second oldest electric tramway in India. Despite being considered an environment-friendly icon of Kolkata, the ‘Tram World’ is losing its charm in this era of modernisation and advancement. It is now proclaimed as a heritage and only some of them can be seen on the streets of Kolkata. The school believes in experiential learning and follows theme-based teaching. One of the themes being ‘Transport’, this excursion was initiated to promote the importance of reviving this heritage commuting transport. The purpose of this excursion trip was to create awareness amongst the young ones of the oldest and most unique heritage transport system of the city - 'The Tram System'.
