Can school force to participate in annual events (cultural program)

My daughter was not keeping well for past 2-3 weeks and we sent an application to principle that she can't participate in annual event. They also charge Rs. 700 for costume from each kid. However they insist that it is mandatory and if you want exemption that submit medical certificate. I don't want to submit the certificate just for the sake of formality because everybody know that you can easily get it in Rs. 200. Any idea if school can force for such events? more  

I am equally amazed at the out burst of Mr Mehta. Objection was for the high charges for a dress being realised by the schools for a function in which child participate. more  
Whole point is that participation in extra currocilar activities should not be mandatory and the decision should lies with parent to decide about such participation rather than school is mandating it with no such guidelines from CBSE board. This is my opinion and not everybody may agree on it, but at least during our time (around 20 years back), no school would mandate participation on any performances but it was just encouraged. more  
I am amazed at the post and the comments.We have completely lost perspective. A school is an institution which instills discipline and community culture in a child. In the forementioned case if the child is actually indisposed what is the harm of giving a medical certificate . Obviously doing something on the right side of te law is not our culture.
And to all commentees, rather than teach a child to be a law abiding citizen, what values are we instlilling. Even if you go to court witout a medical certificate , then what excuse will you give for absenteeism. As per laid down rules a child is stuck of the rolls for not attending school for XX no of days.So people who advise legal steps are actually shortsighted. more  
Most of the Public Schools try to extract money from the parents as mentioned in the post above.But hardly any parent takes up the matter to court. If any parent has done so, he may kindly mention that for benefit of others. more  
U can try by posting on legal matters page to get an answer. more
