Aim of SOP
To lay down guidelines and procedures to celebrate birthdays of boys in Junior School.
A birthday is an emotional occasion for parents and their wards at School. The School’s past experience has been that while majority of the parents had the birthday party conducted in an appropriate manner, some indulgent parents threw a lavish birthday party with return gifts etc. At times requests were also received from parents seeking permission to come to School to celebrate their ward’s birthday. This is not permitted. However, the School organizes a birthday party on their behalf for their ward.
This Standing Operating Procedure aims to ensure that birthday parties are celebrated in an appropriate, dignified and enjoyable manner.
Venue And Responsibilities
Birthdays parties will be celebrated preferably in the House Common Rooms/House Lawns. Junior School Mess can be utilized during inclement weather.
