Diwali Celebration at Hampton School
Diwali is perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals and an official public holiday here in Mauritius. To celebrate, Hampton School held a Diwali themed week filled with fun and educational activities for our Pupils.
Diwali is a five-day celebration known for joy, splendor, and brightness. Known as the "festival of lights," many observe Diwali across the world with multiple countries considering it a national holiday.
During the week, Pupils from all departments made cards and lanterns. Additionally, as part of our Drama and Music curriculum, pupils in the Primary Department performed short dramatic sketches and dances for the rest of the school.
At Hampton, we believe it is important for our pupils to learn about cultures, faiths, and traditions that may be different from their own. Activities like those during the Diwali themed week promote and celebrate diversity amongst our pupils. They also encourage learning through entertaining and interactive experiences.
The Diwali celebration proved to be a success. It was an enjoyable week and we are confident that it created lasting memories for our pupils.
