“Though computers and e-mail play an important role in our lives, nothing will ever replace the sincerity and individualism expressed through the handwritten word.”

On November 19th, Grade 3 visited the “General Post Office”. It was an experiential learning for them, and they thoroughly enjoyed their visit. The GPO staff gave a warm welcome. The moment we entered the premises we saw a huge historical building and later Mr. Sunil Verma informed us that earlier it was an amphitheater during British era. The building stillappears like an old monument. The official there took us on an educational tour of the building and after that, we went to the philatelic museum. The museum has a detailed description of all the stamps starting from the pre independence until present era.The children asked several questions about how with the changing time the letter writing practices have changed. How many letters they receive on an average per day? What are the other services they provide other than postal services? What arepin codes or zip codes in postal address and what are the essentials to write and post letters these days?

The staff was surprisingly happy with their inquisitive tour and they also encouraged them to ask more and more questions. They informed us about their philatelic club and offered us partnership to run philatelic club in school, along with the other hobby clubs. They shared their views on how philately is anencouraging habit to cultivate among youngsters. Not only that, Mr. Verma also explained the benefits of philately to young minds. Thestaff members further asked few questions and they were happy to get the amazing response from our children. Our children also got few lovely rewards for their amazing answers. This tour was planned in the lieu of informal letters which is introduced to them in grade 3. No wonder this the best way to make them understand the importance of letter writing in today’s world. The children were accompanied by their English teachers and grade 4 employees, who undoubtedly enjoyed their visit.
