YOUNGSTERS have been celebrating the start of the Hindu celebration Diwali.
Children from St John’s College Nursery and Pre-Prep in Southsea were split into groups and took it in turns to take part in different activities.
They made clay Diva lamps, made flower garlands and tasted some Indian food which is traditionally eaten during the festival.
Chloe Carroll, nursery room leader, said: ‘It’s important that children at St John’s understand and embrace other cultures – and it helps if we teach them in a fun and enjoyable way.
‘We celebrated Diwali last year and it was a great success so we made sure it featured in our learning programme again this year.’
