Bala Samskar KendraBala Samskar Kendra (BSK) Queensland is celebrating its annual Vinayaka Chathurthi at Sunnybank High School in Brisbane and at Benowa State High School in Gold Coast on 1st September.

BSK celebrates Vinayaka Chathurthi every year to make children, who are growing up in Queensland, aware of the Hindu culture so that they can also appreciate the significance of the festival.

The festival is a family event. During the event, the significance of the festival and the symbolic representation of Vinayaka are explained to children. Children get an opportunity to make their own clay Vinayaka. The clay will be provided to the children by BSK. The event can be attended free of cost. However, registration is compulsory in order to arrange for the clay and for other logistic purposes.

The attendees can also order eco-friendly clay Vinayaka from BSK at a nominal cost. BSK has been supplying eco-friendly clay Vinayaka at a nominal cost to the Hindu community of Brisbane on the occasion of Vinayaka Chathurthi since 2013. The clay that is used has a beautiful warm terracotta colour, which is ideal for Vinayaka idols.
