As customary, class 8 is organising a Diwali Mela for classes 6-8, as a mathematical activity. The mela will be held on 16th October 2017 between 8:30 am and 12:30 pm at School.

The objectives of the event are:

• To encourage financial literacy among students.
• To enable the comprehension of concepts such as Profit and Loss, Discount and Percentages in a hands’-on experience.
• To learn to value money.
• To foster team work and organising skills

The mela will have the following attractions:
• Handmade items such as cards, diyas and torans.
• Food stalls of bakery items, juices, savouries and snacks prepared by students.
• Entertainment with mathematical and skill based games.

The students of classes 6 and 7 can collect coupons for the mela from their class teachers. Parents are advise to keep a cap on the expense while extending their cooperation to make the event a success.

The proceeds of the mela will be treated as Shramdaan for charity.
