Session 2017-2018 - Diwali Card Making
Diwali , the festival of lights has a great impact on us. Diwali, or Dipawali, is India's biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row(avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. Over the centuries, Diwali has become a national festival that is enjoyed by most Indians regardless of faith: Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs.
This week ‘s Circle Time had something special for everyone. Students of classes 2 to 5 made beautiful Diwali cards with the help of their teachers. The cards were decorated with glitters, stars and sequences .. This activity enhanced their thinking and creativity skills.
The teachers also related different stories related to this festival.
In all interpretations, one common thread rings true—the festival marks the victory of good over evil.
