Happy Diwali

Written by 

Two special assemblies to mark Diwali were held in the school over the last two Fridays. 4th Class (red) presented a series of facts about the Hindu/Sikh festival to a senior assembly on Friday 7th November and again to a Junior assembly on Friday 13th November. The class prepared Rangoli art work and presented  a song "This Little Light of mine"  to the two asssemblies. Each child in the class carried a paper lantern to the performance.  Diwali, also known as the 'Festival of Lights', was celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains around the world on 11 November. Diwali has significance to all three religious groups, making it the most widely celebrated festival in the Indian diaspora. The day is believed to mark new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil, with the word Diwali, or Deepavali, meaning 'row of lamps' in Sanskrit. Diwali also represents a renewal of commitment to family values, with many gathering with friends and loved ones to celebrate the festival.  We wish all out Hindu and Sikh children and families in every happiness for their Diwali celebrations
