As part of the Professions Project, the Year 2 class had a field trip around the city, where they visited various workplaces. The group visited CP (the train station), the Court, CTT (the post office) and Mrs. Fátima's hairdressing salon.
At the Court, Judge Cátia Monteiro welcomed the class and had the students simulate of a hearing, with an accused person, a lawyer, witnesses and a provider. The group also went on a guided tour of the facilities.
At the post office, the students were welcomed by Mr. Sérgio Cavaco and by Mrs. Florbela. In addition to explaining the various jobs within a post office, they also gifted the class a stamp commemorating CTT's 500th anniversary.
The students also visited the train station and explored the various jobs linked to locomotive transportation, and stopped at Mrs. Fátima's hairdressing salon, where she explained to them everything a hairdresser does.
A day of exploration that gave students a broader perspective on the different professions that make a community work.
