Our day school students enjoy exploring different traditions around the world. This year we learned about Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights which “symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance“.
Celebration Through Dance
One of our teachers taught the students how to dance in celebration of Diwali and we learned through activities and books about the festival. Our students even had the opportunity to watch a Diwali celebratory dance at Sherway Gardens.
