Potluck Party!!

Potluck Party!!

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 (8:00 am to 8:35 am)

Happy Diwali!

Regards,
Grade 4 Team
