Early Years Diwali Celebrations

Early Years Diwali Celebrations

The Early Years children, staff and parents celebrated Diwali in great style, with ornate sarees, colourful decorations and lighted divas.  This Festival of Light is held in honour of Lakshmi, the Hindu god of wealth and prosperity. We learnt that Hindus pray to Lakshmi to bring them good luck in the coming year.  The children watched the story of Rama as he searched for Sita with the help of Hanuman the monkey.  

All the children and staff received Diwali gifts and everyone carried on the celebrations in the classrooms with a lots of exciting craft activities. Thank you to all the parents who helped make this such a wonderful event.
