Glendale International School embraced the spirit of Diwali by organising a vibrant celebration of the festival of lights, immersing students, faculty, and parents in the richness of Indian tradition and festivity.
The school campus underwent a mesmerising transformation days before the event. Hues of vibrant colours adorned every nook and corner. Intricately designed Rangoli patterns graced the entrances, symbolising prosperity and welcoming the Diwali spirit. Students, guided by art teachers, lent their creativity to these beautiful patterns, reflecting the essence of unity in diversity.
The highlight of the celebration was the Diwali programme, a cultural extravaganza that showcased various aspects of Indian heritage. Students performed mesmerising classical and folk dances, captivating the audience with their grace and talent. The involvement of parents added a special charm to the event. The school invited parents to join the celebration, fostering a sense of community and togetherness.
A scrumptious array of traditional sweets like laddoos, jalebis, and snacks like samosas and pakoras added a delightful flavour to the celebration. The aroma of these delicacies wafted through the air, tantalising taste buds and spreading joy.
This celebration wasn’t just about festivities; it was an opportunity for cultural exchange and understanding. Students from diverse backgrounds shared and appreciated each other’s traditions, fostering respect and harmony among the school community.
