Diwali Celebrations – Portland Road
3rd November 2011
Portland Road children enjoyed their Diwali, Hindu Festival of Light, celebrations. They made Thengai Burfi (a traditional sweet), candles and lanterns to give as gifts and decorated the nursery with bright red, green and yellow colours. Oil lamps were placed by the children on the interest table and they read stories about Lakshmi, Rama and Sita. They were very lucky as Mishka and Anaaya wore their traditonal dress (Shalwar Kameez) for the day and a member of staff also brought other Saris from home for the other children to wear.
