SILC Mela: Our only Fundraiser - the SILC Mela (or Fair) features the chaos of an Indian Mela with lots of fun for children in the form of games, and other activities for children. What is a Mela without food? Vegetarian food is made by our SILC families. We are also presenting Great Gatherings: tickets will be sold at the Mela to later events hosted by SILC families: great dinners and parties!

Spring

Holi Celebration: Come enjoy the colors of Holi with the SILC community! Held towards the end of the school year when weather permits.

SILC Graduation Day: Last day of the SILC School Year! Students present the skills they have picked up during the year - on stage. Graduation certificates and SILC yearbooks are passed out - children get autographs from teachers and fellow students. The event culminates in a community potluck and friends say goodbye for the summer!
