As part of our global cultural appreciation events throughout the year, we had the opportunity to learn more about Diwali earlier today. Diwali, also known as Deepavali, is an Indian festival of lights that is widely celebrated. It is a festival that signifies “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.”
This year Diwali falls on Saturday, 14th November 2020. Throughout the week, our students learnt about the various customs, read and re-enacted stories, explored diya pottery-making and tried traditional snacks. Ending the celebration was a dance with the whole school!
