Image of Pre-School Celebrate Diwali


At the beginning of November, our Pre-School children celebrated Diwali. Diwali, a festival of lights, symbolises the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness and new beginnings. Houses are lit by Diyas – small clay pots containing a little oil and a wick, and rangoli patterns are made outside front doors, together with footprints to welcome Lakshmi, the goddess of good fortune and wealth, into every home. Buildings and streets are decorated with lights, and there are firework displays. The children made their own Diyas, created mehndi and rangoli patterns and used paint to make firework pictures.
