It’s very important to teach children about different cultures and traditions, so we like to celebrate all kinds of special days and festivals at Milton Hall Montessori School.
This week we all celebrated Diwali; the Hindu festival of light. The children dressed up wearing bright and colourful clothing, and learned all about the joyous festival!
Sutindar Lal told the children the story of Rama and Sita why Hindus celebrate the Festival of Lights.
Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world.
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 from Milton Hall Montessori School.
