When children learn Braille

Last month, Grade 6 students of The Shri Ram School learnt Braille as part of their social initiative.

In each section, we started the session by asking how long they think they will take to learn Braille. The answers ranged from 2 minutes to 4 years!
We then asked them to turn on the stopwatch and see how long it actually takes. We took 20 minutes. In 20 minutes, every child was able to write the notation of their names in Braille.

The day was full of excitement, fun, enthu and one girl wrote the Braille notation for "I Love Braille" and showed it to us. That was the melt heart moment of the day for us.

And we know Braille!
