Excursions are means of educating ourselves on how certain things work and how we rely on certain services. Grade 2 students visited the Local Post Office to post thank you letters to their parents. Students learnt letter writing as part of their English Curriculum and wrote a letter to their parents in the class. On 20th March, 2015 Grade 2 students were taken to the New Panvel Post office to post the letters. The children and teachers were welcomed warmly by the staff at the Post- office. They were taken around to see how letters are collected, segregated, stamped and then stored in pigeon holes for the postmen to collect. It was altogether a great learning experience especially in these times of email and whatsapp! It was delightful to see the excitement on the children’s faces as they posted their envelopes in the post box.
