Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, is celebrated throughout the world each year in late October or early November. This year, Lamplighter students took part in a school-wide celebration of Diwali on October 28. Both parent and student volunteers hosted assemblies for Lower School and classroom demonstrations for Early Childhood students. The educational assemblies explained the meaning behind Diwali, the traditions often shared with this celebration, like the symbolic cleaning of the house, as well as the celebratory elements including fireworks and lots of good food!
Three Lamplighter Seniors helped share the traditions of Diwali by leading dance demonstrations in Cook Gym. Their beautiful costumes, festive music, and cultural dances engaged fellow classmates in the festive celebration of Diwali.
