From rowdy students up to no good with their explosive antics to eccentric, artistic ones putting on a great show, Diwali is one of the best memory trips from this time period.

Diwali melas, are common in almost every school and are organized by the faculty. It provides an opportunity for the students and their guardians to shop for fancy diyas along with other home decorations for Diwali. Temporary stalls are put up inside the school campus, exhibiting art and craft prepared by the students. And guess what? All proceeds are then donated to charity or are used to fund school trips.

Students take their school trips very seriously — it’s the great escape from boring and mundane classes, as well as the daily grind. And to celebrate Diwali, they want nothing more than to go on a fun and long trip with their school-mates. With Diwali vacations just around the corner, some schools are actually nice enough to take their students on a short trip!

SUPW classes are meant to be socially productive, and what’s more productive than making ‘diyas’ and candles with your friends and gifting them to the poor. With this thought in mind, students organize workshops and create many such Diwali items that can be gifted to the needy to help them celebrate Diwali as well. After all isn’t helping those in need the best way to celebrate the festival of lights?

Well, what’s Diwali without a little bit of decoration? Schools catch up on that as well, courtesy inter-class competitions and enthusiastic students. Although, students might not be permitted to do the more risky decorations but their help is always appreciated by the school. Plus, students do love to get down and dirty in enterprises like these!
