The week following Easter, a travelling exhibition reached the city of Ourense in the autonomous community of Galicia, Spain, organised by the Spanish Federation (FESOFI) and sponsored by the Spanish Post (Correos). It has toured Spain since 2006 and visited the city for the first time in 2007.
The youngsters had the opportunity to take a journey through all the magic and history of stamps as well as the idea of written correspondence. They learned how to prepare a letter, put a stamp on the envelope, and mail it. It seems that they enjoyed a few days in their own school on a rather unfamiliar subject.
The activity was hosted at CEIP O Couto de Ourense (public primary school). Given the opportunity, a number of philatelic books were added to the school’s library.
