Holi Celebration

As Hindus around the world mark Holi, the festival of Colours, Love and Spring we celebrated Holi on Thursday, the 9th of March. Holi is a popular Hindu festival that celebrates the arrival of spring, the end of winter and the blossoming of love. Holi celebrations begin the morning after the Holika bonfire. Children and young people form groups equipped with dry colours, coloured solution and water guns,water balloons filled with coloured water, and other creative means to colour their targets.We use this time of celebration to pass on the beauty of Indian culture to children as part of our commitment to developing children's learning about a diverse group of people and new cultures.

Staff and children participated by throwing brightly coloured powders at each other as they celebrate the triumph of good over evil and the arrival of spring in India.

It was a great occasion enjoyed by all and we were able to connect with the Indian culture represented by several families / staff and children in the Centre.

A special THANK YOU to Miss Pridhi and Miss Jasjeet for organising the celebration and sharing this vibrant cultural tradition with us.
