Our Lower First and Upper First (Kindergarten and Year 1) students looked at Indian art and celebrations last week.  The five day festival of Diwali was discussed, with children drawing the typical activities such as house cleaning, buying new clothes, lighting small lamps and creating footprints, pictured below, to lead the bad spirits away from a home and to welcome the good spirits in.  Lower First classes also decorated Indian elephants.
