This morning, Ms Siva and some helpers created beautiful Rangoli patterns on the pavement near the school gates, while we danced our way into school with Diwali music.
Diwali is the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. This year Diwali takes place over five days from 22nd October to 26th October with the main day of celebration on Monday 24th November. Diwali, which for some also coincides with harvest and new year celebrations, is a festival of new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.
Happy Diwali to all of our families celebrating!
