On the weekend, millions of Indians started celebrating Diwali. It is a festival of lights. During this festival, people light up their houses and shops. They worship Lord Ganesha for good welfare and prosperity and Goddess Lakshmi for wealth and wisdom.
The celebration of Diwali ties in beautifully with our current unit in grade 4, Cultural Identity. So we asked our three Indian students if they would like to make a presentation about Diwali. Nashwa, Tanish and Paulo came to school beautifully dressed in traditional Indian costumes. They showed grade 4 their presentation and passed out individually wrapped Diwali treats.
Thank you Nashwa, Tanish and Paulo and also a big thank you to their parents for helping to organise this.
