Diwali 2019 starts on Sunday 27th October and lasts for five days
Diwali is the famous festival of lights, when families and friends get together to feast and celebrate.
The five day festival begins on Sunday 27th October 2019; each day has its own individual meaning and associated celebration.
The third day of Diwali is regarded as the most important day.
Diwali literally means a ‘row of Lights’. It is a celebration of light! It is a time filled with light and love. The festival does not follow the Gregorian but rather the Hindu calendar known as ‘Tithi,’ which is a lunar calendar.
We would like to wish all our students and staff community who celebrate this festival a very happy Diwali!
