Today was a half-yearly Parent-Teacher Meeting at Bal Bharati and a great day for sales. Besides propagating the Terramerx project, and enlisting many volunteers for future sales and schemes, we sold a good deal.
The gardening club alone made Rs. 830/- in the day and the bag production and notebook production are a hit, having brought us Rs. 450/-
The bags specially got us a lot of praise and we are working on hints and suggestions by parents.
We are all smiles 🙂
Take a look at some snaps from the sale booth!
The two running ventures, notebook production and kitchen garden, are working actively in the school. As a side venture, the Terrmerx enterprise also has a craft shop, where we put the creations of our students from waste products and biodegradable material for sale. Lately, the students designed some greeting cards from used paper. Take a look!
Such was the paper deposition recently that we had to empty the deposit box yet again, today! Sorting the very crisp papers from the folded to some can’t-use. And here are the three volunteers who helped us today.
The amount of paper we finally collected has managed to show need of more drop boxes at more positions! 🙂
The gardening club is actively growing plants for the upcoming interactive session between parents and teachers in October. The last time, they sold 50 plants, and generated a profit of Rupees 750, much larger than we had originally expected. The herbs are blooming and we are excited!
Here’s one picture of a stall we put up before. We’re making something bigger this time!
And here’s the club at the last selling.
