On Friday 25th October Cranbourne Carlisle PS hosted Diwali Day. We celebrated with fabulous dance presentations from our children from all year levels and the children were able to sample some delicious food supplied by our parents and community members.
They worship the Lord Ganesha for good welfare and prosperity and Goddess Lakshmi for wealth and wisdom. Every year around October and November, Hindus around the world celebrate Diwali, or Deepavali—a festival of lights that stretches back more than 2,500 years. And in India, the five-day celebration marks the biggest holiday of the year.
