Potluck – 2nd November 2018

Potluck – 2nd November 2018

Festivals serve to unite people from different backgrounds in celebration and understanding. In India, food is irrevocably entwined with every festival the country celebrates.

Diwali, a festival of fun, frolics and feasts, is just around the corner. The first thing that comes to mind when we think of Diwali is – Food. Food that includes all sorts of sweets and savouries. However, other than a few ubiquitous Indian sweets, most people are unfamiliar with the festive fare that is traditionally eaten in various regions of the country. So, what is it that is an integral part of your tradition that is eaten during the festivals?

Every family has a recipe that reminds us of warm feelings and happy memories that they cherish during festivals. Recipes that have been passed down for so many generations that we aren’t even sure where they originated.  

Family recipes tell a story. They’re often connected to people, places, and special memories. They have a who, a where, and a why.  Take some time out to share your family stories with your kids. Where did those recipes come from? Why are they meaningful to you and your family? Cooking a recipe or two with your child will surely add to their memories.

Grade 6 will be celebrating this diversity and with that thought in mind, a potluck is scheduled for 2nd November 2018, Friday.

For this potluck, you are requested to send “Indian traditional festive food.” Quantity should be just enough for your child and a few of his/her friends. The students will also be given an opportunity to share their family stories with their friends.

Thank you for your cooperation and involvement in your child’s learning journey!

Regards,

Grade 6 team.

Diwali aayee… Diwali aayee… khushiyon ki bahaar laayee..

Our Early years students are learning this song in their morning circle! Diwali is indeed a special festival for most of us. One of the traditions associated with Diwali is the traditional sweetmeats and namkeens associated with the festival. So, to help our students connect with their roots and partake in traditions associated with festivals, the potluck this time will have the theme of Diwali special.

You can send with your child any food or sweet that is part of your family’s Diwali tradition. Don’t send a lot, you can send enough just for him/her to share with 3-4 friends. It will be nice if your child is involved in some way in preparation of the food that day and can share the significance/ ritual associated with what he/she has brought. If  you do not celebrate Diwali or it is not possible for you to make any food or sweet that is a part of your family tradition, you may choose to send any traditional food item.

Students will have the Potluck party on 2nd November during their Home Meal Break (8:35 am to 8:55 am)

Happy Diwali!
