Students celebrate Diwali

Students of the Vilamoura International School took part in the Diwali celebration at the end of their last school term in October.

All pupils from nursery up to year 6 celebrated the “festival of lights” by listening to the story of Rama and Sita, making their own Diwali lamps and tasting Indian food.

Year 5 and 6 students were invited for a meal by the Tandoori Indian Palace restaurant in Almancil and then ended the celebrations with a school assembly, where all students lit their Diwali lamps.

Head of primary at the school, James Denton told the Algarve Resident: “For all the staff involved, it was a really special moment seeing the student’s faces over 100 flickering tea lights, knowing that the pupils now understood the significance of why Diwali is referred as the festival of lights.”
