Diwali, the Hindu, Sikh and Jain festival of lights, falls in either October or November depending on the cycle of the moon.  This year, it will be celebrated on Wednesday 7 November. The event is associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the start of the financial year in India.

Our whole school collective worship on Friday 2 November was a celebration of Diwali and an opportunity for students to find out more about how Diwali is celebrated. Students dressed in traditional clothing and wished everyone a ‘Happy Diwali’, they even gave out sweets to everyone!
