9th of October was celebrated as “Post Office Day” at Wisdom Global
School. With the intent of bringing the real life, practical knowledge
into class room experiences and school curriculum, students of class 3rd
to 7th were taken for a visit to PallavPuram Post Office, Modipuram.
All the students had prepared a letter to post, and were ready to learn
all about the journey of a letter from the post office .
The Postmaster explained that PallavPuram Post Office is basically a delivery branch and handles mails of Modipuram area of Meerut. He showed them the sorting “pigeonholes”. Each pigeonhole is designated to a particular area and is used to store the sorted mail of that area. After that the sorted mail is assigned to the postman of that area and is distributed by him.
After an hour of information gathering, the students discovered that post office is not only a place to post letters, but it also provide many other services like saving money , sending parcels in India and other countries .
The visit to the Post Office was certainly a great learning opportunity for the students .
