Visit to the Traffic Park

– Ms. Alareen Fernandes

An excursion to the Traffic Park was organized for the students of Std. II on 22nd February 2018 with the purpose of introducing basic road safety rules to them.

The Traffic Park is equipped with traffic signals, road signs and road crossings and thus the children enjoyed learning about the various aspects of road safety in a play way method. The little visitors also got a chance to cross the road independently, steadily making it to the other side by watching the signal carefully. They learnt about the safety measures to be adopted by the citizens to keep themselves safe on the roads.

On the way back the children could be heard speaking to each other excitedly. “I will tell daddy to use the helmet at all times,” said Manishankar Siriki. “We must always follow the traffic rules,” remarked Kanishk Uppal. We, teachers felt a sense of fulfillment!

The trip was instrumental in sensitizing the children about road safety and the significance of following traffic rules. It was not only fun for the children but also a great learning experience and a refreshing mix of education and entertainment, as we like calling it, edutainment!
