 A visit to the GPO – Field trip of Std. IV

-Ms. Colleen Azavedo

The students of Std IV went for their field trip to the G.P.O. on 11th January 2018. This trip was organized to co-relate with the topic dealing with letter writing. The teachers prepared the students for the visit in the days preceding the field trip.

On reaching the G.P.O one of the officers welcomed the students and acted as their guide. He guided them to the sorting department and explained to them the process of classification of letters after the collection from the different post boxes. The students were then taken to the parcel department, speed post, post office bank, the Philately Bureau and the Philately Museum. There the students gained a lot of information about stamps. Some of the students purchased stamps and envelopes and inserted the letters they had brought. Then they addressed the envelope and later posted it. Handbooks and sweets were distributed to every child. The students enjoyed themselves throughout the trip. Indeed, it was a great learning experience for one and all.
