Diwali 2015

Yesterday pupils at Crookhey Hall School had a lesson dedicated to learning all about Diwali, the festival of lights celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains in India and around the world.

The class learnt all about the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi and the tradition of decorating houses and public places with thousands of lights, candles and colourful designs. Despite the wet weather, the pupils went out onto the school grounds after the lesson for a small fireworks display to celebrate.
