students, parents and teachers.

Kindly adhere to the following guidelines for a birthday celebration at school:

  • Only one item can be sent from home – sweet or savoury.
  • The cake should be simple with no adornments (preferably home-baked) accompanied by paper plates, napkins and cutlery.
  • Students of Pre-Primary – Class II are allowed to attend school in a dress of their choice on the day of their birthday. Class III onwards will wear their normal school uniform.
  • Parents can leave eatables with the respective Section Heads either in the morning or during break time. Eatables will be shared with students in the presence of the class teacher (parents should refrain from visiting classes during the celebration time).
  • Candles, party poppers/ confetti, balloons, goodie bags, carbonated drinks, juices and snow sprays are strictly not permitted.
  • Policy related to photography must be followed for birthday celebrations.
