Diwali Day

On Thursday 24th October Glen Waverley Primary School held a Cultural Dress Day in recognition of the upcoming festival of Diwali. On this day, students were encouraged to wear their traditional cultural dress.  

Many members of our school community embraced this festival and it allowed our learners to deepen their Intercultural understandings.

Throughout the day students took part in discussions in their classrooms pertaining to the use of candles in various celebrations and ceremonies around the world. Our purpose was to help the children to build healthy connections and understandings with other cultures and celebrations around the world outside of their own.

It was great to see so many happy faces on the day as our school community embraced Diwali and the notion of the important element light plays in celebrations.
