25th OCTOBER, 2023 – DIWALI

Diwali, or Deepavali, commonly called the “Festival of Lights”, is a five day autumn festival celebrated by Hindus worldwide.  It is also honoured by Sikhs, and is of significance to Jain and Buddhist communities since it celebrates not only the triumphant return of Rama and Sita to their capital, Ayodhya, but many other events involving various other deities.  Diwali offers a great opportunity for you to bring your classroom alive with its breadth of rich, colourful culture. It is never too late to celebrate; we provide special Diwali sessions throughout October and November, even into early December!

Happy Diwali!
