Published : Friday, November 1, 2013 | 11:30 AM

The kindergarten students of St. Philip the Apostle School went to a nearby Pasadena fire station last week to have a tour and learn about fire safety.

The one-hour tour included visiting the fire station’s bedrooms, kitchen, and viewing the fire trucks and fire engine, the Falcon’s Flyer reported.

Many students suggested that in order for them to enjoy more the fire station visits that may take place in the future, the trip should be shorter, there should be enough breaks and there should be stickers to be given away to students, the newspaper reported.

Several students also said they prefer going to the station on a bus with their friends or on a car with their family instead of walking, the Falcon’s reported.

Saint Philip the Apostle Church was built in 1926 and Saint Philip the Apostle School opened in September 1927. There are 27 teachers and 12 teacher’s assistants on staff. The school offers an academically challenging core curriculum as well as music, Spanish, computer, Physical Education, art, and library classes.

St. Philip the Apostle School is located at 1363 Cordova St. For more information, call (626) 795-9691 or visit
