Important note:Traditional Food Day

Important note:Traditional Food Day

Dear All,

As we all are aware that Grade 5 is hosting students from Mount Litera School, Mumbai, under the Students’ Exchange Program from 4th Feb – 7th Feb 2018.

Being the host we thought that it is a good opportunity to celebrate Traditional Food Day and share our traditional delicacies with them and at the same time, provide an opportunity to the non-exchange program students to interact with them.

Hence, we will celebrate Traditional Food Day on Tuesday, 6th Feb, during our Home Meal Break time. Students are expected to bring traditional food items only. All the students are expected to bring something and we should keep in mind that each one would be bringing some or the other item and thereby, decide on the quantity of food to bring, accordingly. We have to be mindful about the wastage that happens during such events.

Looking forward to your cooperation and lots of Indian/Gujarati delicacies on Tuesday.

Regards
