Exploring Embu Town: A Market Adventure for Grades 1, 2, and 3

On the 15th of March, our eager students from Grades 1, 2, and 3 embarked on an enriching educational journey to Embu town, accompanied by our dedicated teachers. This excursion wasn’t just a day out; it was a hands-on learning experience aimed at teaching our young learners essential life skills through real-world encounters.

Educational Tour in Action

The focal point of this educational tour was to delve into the dynamics of buying and selling. As part of the curriculum, our students were immersed in practical scenarios at the bustling marketplaces of Embu town. It wasn’t merely about wandering through stalls; it was about gaining invaluable insights into consumerism and commerce at a grassroots level.

Key Lessons Learned

One of the primary objectives of this excursion was to equip our students with the ability to discern quality commodities in the market. Armed with guidance from their teachers, the students learned how to scrutinize products, considering factors such as freshness, durability, and value for money. This skill is not only crucial for making informed purchasing decisions but also cultivates a sense of consumer awareness from a young age.

Moreover, our students were introduced to the intricate art of handling transactions. From understanding price tags to calculating change, every step of the purchasing process was meticulously explored. By engaging in role-playing activities and interactive sessions, the students gained confidence in dealing with real-life scenarios, such as making purchases and receiving change from shopkeepers.

Implications for Future Learning

The experiences gained from this educational tour extend far beyond the market stalls of Embu town. By instilling practical knowledge and critical thinking skills, we are preparing our students to navigate the complexities of the modern world with confidence and competence. Whether they grow up to be savvy consumers or aspiring entrepreneurs, the lessons learned during this excursion will undoubtedly serve as a solid foundation for their future endeavors.


At St. Petroc Premier School, we believe in the power of experiential learning. Our trip to Embu town was not just a day of fun; it was a strategic investment in the education and development of our students. As they return to the classroom, we look forward to witnessing how these practical lessons shape their understanding of the world and ignite their curiosity for learning.

Join us on our journey as we continue to provide innovative and immersive learning experiences for our students, empowering them to thrive in an ever-changing world.
