The students were given hands on experience of stamping which they enjoyed a lot . A post card was provided to the students to write their experience about their visit and post it back to the GPO on which the students were overwhelmed as they were going to write a post card for the first time in their life in today’s age of WhatsApp and email.
The students were departed from the Post office by distributing chocolates by the GPO and it was an enjoyable and informative visit as in today’s time of digitalization, children don’t know much about the role of post office.
