Book Fair

The worth of a book is to be measured by what you can carry away from it. - James Bryce

To justify this thought, we oaganised a book fair to provide opportunity for Oakridgers to buy latest publications with attractive offers. By collaborating with Scholastic publication, a book fair was organised for 3 days from 19th Jan to 21st Jan, where students could choose the books and buy them on the last day of the fair with parents, who came to the school for PTM.

During these three days students were very excited about choosing books and calculating the amount. The reason behind it was that most of the students were willing to pay from their pocket money and were also very much curious about books their friends were choosing, so that they could exchange and get to read lots of them. It was a nice feeling to see students having good thoughts about sharing and budgeting.
