St Aloysius Catholic Primary School Together with Jesus, we Love, Learn and Believe


This week we have had a fantastic time celebrating Diwali, the Hindu `festival of light`. We listened carefully to the story of Rama and Sita before using masks and special props to retell the Diwali story to our friends. Throughout the week we also made our very own Diva Lamps using clay and special Diwali sweets called Laddoos. At snack time we tasted some delicious Indian food including Poppadoms and Samosas. They were a little spicy but most of us thought they tasted yummy! On Friday we dressed up in sarees and learnt some traditional Indian dancing. Our teachers were so impressed with how much we had learnt about the Indian culture.
