On Tuesday, 6th March, 2018, an excursion to the Traffic Training Park at Baba Kharak Singh Marg, was organised for Pre-School students. The excursion aimed to introduce the children to basic road safety rules with live displays, to reinforce what was taught in the classroom.

We were warmly welcomed at the venue by a representative, who guided us through. She introduced the children to commonly used road signs /symbols and also spent time explaining the necessity of traffic signals. She used a live demonstration aided by flash cards. The visit was not only educational but was also fun-filled. It amply and yet very simply introduced our little ones to basic road safety rules.

The children were excited to see the fabricated pedestrian pathways, signboards and traffic lights, a foot over bridge etc., which were all created in miniature to suit the heights of the little ones. The little visitors also got a chance to cross the foot over bridge independently, steadily making it to the other side. Some of the children also got a chance to ride a bicycle through the traffic course, which they thoroughly enjoyed.

While students were already broadly familiar with traffic rules and traffic safety from their lessons in the classroom, their visit to the traffic park greatly reinforced what they had read with its live demonstration.

The young listeners were asked to carry home the message of road safety and the importance of safety rules.

It was an enlightening experience to reinforce the safety of oneself and of others too.
