School educational trips enhance students learning experience by providing opportunities to participate in activities outside their normal routine.
The young Stafordians of grade 1 and 2 had such a learning opportunity by visiting the nearby local post office (chowk). The children were excited to see how letters were stamped, sorted and put into different pigeon holes as per the area they had to be delivered.
The children were taken around to see various counters catering to the public. It was a wonderful learning experience for the children to see how a post office function as this means of communication is becoming ancient.
The children saw a letter box – they posted small letters in it. They were happy to meet the postman and see his shelf with loads of letters.
The trip was full of fun and excitement and great learning about the post office in today’s time of e-mails. As an educative and fun-filled trip, it left a lasting impression on the young mind.
