Diwali Day

Staff and pupils spent a most enjoyable day busy learning what it is like to be a Hindu and to celebrate Diwali day. We shared the Diwali story and activities included cooking, dancing, listening to music and lots of make and do such as moulding and decorating clay divas, creating model fireworks and drawing mendhi and rangoli patterns.


All of the staff borrowed and wore beautiful saris for the day and the children took turns trying on costumes and role playing as part of the festival.


We ended the day with a sharing assembly to talk about what we had learned and to watch the children perform the dances they had created during the day!
