Field Trip To Bomba TTDI

In many ways, Bomba represents a place where heroes reside. Be it fires or other disasters, whenever lives and properties are in danger, firemen from Bomba will be there for rescues. These are the real-life superheroes children adore.

On 24th of April 2009, Montessori House of Little Capers organized a field trip to Balai Bomba TTDI, for our children to meet their heroes, at zero distance!

The program was extremely exciting and fun-filled. After a video show of home safety, children were shown around and brought into the fire engine to explore the various functions of the magical vehicle; they took turn to hands-on experiment the use of the fire fighting hose; a fire was put up and teachers as the demonstrators were directed by the Bomba crews to put it off using the fire extinguisher. In addition to the excitement of dressing up the fire fighter gears, the children even witnessed a python arresting show!

To express our sincere appreciation to the crews for their most generous hospitality, a beautifully decorated fruit hamper was presented to the Balai by our Principal Mrs Zora Tham. Thank you heroes, for making this the most educational and memorable field trip of all!
