Celebrating Diwali

Published: 22nd November 2023

Bourne Westfield staff and children were excited to learn all about the Hindu festival of Diwali last week. Mrs Chabria, a teaching assistant at the school, led an exciting assembly, teaching the children all about the origins of Diwali.  She also shared how her family celebrated Diwali this year and the staff were able to sample delicious Diwali sweets. 

Headteacher, Kate Atkinson, commented, “It was a privilege for us to celebrate this special festival in school and we felt honoured to wear traditional clothing for the day.  The children all loved learning about Diwali during the assembly and it was brilliant that Mrs Chabria was able to share her experiences first hand and answer all the questions the children had.”
