Excursions are means of educating students on how certain things work and how we rely on certain services. Kindergarteners at MRIS-51, Gurugram had a wonderful visit to the Post-office. Students were introduced to the “Postman” as a helper, under their ongoing theme ‘Lands and People’. 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 & fax.
Kids had a glance of the various counters catering to the public, namely those selling stamps, envelopes, postcards etc. Later, they posted letters to their parents that they had written in class. Each and every child was beaming with joy as they put their envelopes into the post box.
