Meeting the Mailman! Field Trip to Head Post office-Grade-I

Our inquirers of Grade I visited the ‘Head Post Office’, at Patny, Secunderabad on the 11th of June, 2018 as part of their mission to understand the role played by community helpers such as postmen. Students interacted with various employees of the Post Office, including the post-master and several postmen and tried to understand their roles and responsibilities along with the entire process of postal delivery. This visit was a part of the students’ ongoing Inquiry on ‘Community Helpers ‘. Students understood that every occupation has its own importance and responsibility towards the larger community. To help them better understand the mailing process the postman undertakes, students received postcards to mail back home.
