Sunnynook School

Diwali also known as Deepavali, Dipavali, Dewali, or Deepawali, or the Festival of Lights, marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year. 

Our Indian cultural group showed us how to design, draw and decorate Rangoli patterns during the lunch hour. 

The entrance to the Junior Playground was transformed into a sea of colour. Thank you Megha, Krish, Mahi, Tanisha, Yashica, Ryan and Krisha for sharing the Hindu festival with us.

Rangoli patterns are intricate geometric designs drawn for special occasions - Takapuna Grammar School students Sofia and Maia prepared these designs for us ready to use

Mrs Dewar shared a picture of a beautiful Rangoli pattern to give our students ideas for their patterns.

We also had Ethan, Phoenix, Andrew and Faye kindly help out for the reader's theatre of the story of Diwali: Rama Rescues Sita.
