Di­wali lessons at Twyford pre-school

The Wokingham Paper - - EDUCATION -

CHIL­DREN at a pre-school in Twyford have spent a week cel­e­brat­ing and learn­ing all about the re­li­gious fes­ti­val of Di­wali.

Chil­dren, staff and par­ents at Cedar Park Day Nurs­ery, in Bridge Farm Road, spent a week mak­ing Ran­goli pat­terns us­ing coloured rice, and pro­duced small diva lamps out of clay.

Di­wali is one of the world’s largest re­li­gious cel­e­bra­tions which is marked in In­dia and across the world. Also known as The Fes­ti­val of Lights, the event sym­bol­ises the tri­umph of light over dark­ness and good over evil.

Nurs­ery Man­ager Emma Kemp said: “At

Cedar Park we mark a range of dif­fer­ent cul­tural and re­li­gious events through­out the year.

“This helps to give chil­dren a broad un­der­stand­ing of the world around them and cel­e­brates di­ver­sity.”
