On Wednesday 11th October, the South School celebrated Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights celebrated every year in Autumn. The children made colourful displays including lanterns, diyas and henna designs. A group of mothers from our Indian community kindly donated Indian food and came to school to create gorgeous rangoli patterns. After lunch, each class had an opportunity to snack on the Indian home-made food. At the end of the day an assembly was held about the religious festival, for which many parents, students and staff dressed in the traditional festive Indian clothes. It was a festive, happy event and we thank our Indian Community for sharing the celebration with us and their kind contributions.
