World Post Day
Did you know the UK Penny Black, featuring Queen Victoria’s portrait was issued on 1 May 1840 and it was the world’s first official adhesive postage stamp. The day marks the anniversary of creation of the Universal Postal Union in 1874 in Bern in Switzerland. Nearly 445 billion letters are delivered around the world every year. Ms Shagun taught the students of 6 Alpha how to compose a letter on the World Post Day. Letter writing, an art which is losing its popularity with the onset of technology needs to be encouraged in kids. Let us all write a letter today to our loved ones. Nothing feels more special than receiving hand written words from our friends and family.
