Welcome to our Vietnamese guests!

It has been an exciting week as we welcomed our Vietnamese friends to our school and homes.

On Monday morning they bravely gave a presentation to the school about their country and culture.  We hope they have a wonderful time experiencing schooling and kiwi life in New Zealand!

Diwali Festival

Diwali is a festival of lights and it is celebrated by millions of Indians. The festival, which is the Indian New Year, celebrates new beginnings and the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. Those celebrating the festival also light traditional diyas (candles) and decorate their houses with colourful rangoli, artworks which are patterns created on the floor using colourful powder or rice. During Diwali, families and friends share sweets and gifts and there is also a strong belief in giving food and goods to those in need. It is also traditional for homes to be cleaned and new clothes to be worn at the time of the festival. This year on 5th November we took part in a traditional Indian dance organised by the Indian Association.

Carncot students Juhi, Surya, Emily, Kareena, Jiya, Dia, Vrunda and Dhruvi.
