Happy Diwali! There was so much beauty and magic in our Preschool day today as we celebrated Diwali the Hindu Festival of Lights. Our teacher Pooja made a delicious rice porridge for morning tea. After our park play, we came together and Pooja captivated the children with a Diwali story she had written and a joyful, exuberant song and dance. A mandala of flowers from the children’s gardens was created by all and left as a beautiful natural Diwali gift for the park community. The children were delighted at the return of a lunch favourite of Idlis before resting with the magic of their clay diya candles shining light into the darkness. Avi then surprised his friends with a gift of bracelets to celebrate Diwali through dressing up beautifully. Thank you so much to Pooja and Avi and his family for sharing this special day with us.
