Deepawali or Diwali is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It is the festival of lights: deep means “light” and avali “a row,” or “a row of lights.” Diwali is marked by four days of celebration, which literally illuminates the country with its brilliance and dazzles all with its joy.
At RRIS, we celebrated at school on the 20th of October. It coincided with colours day for the KGs. All were dressed beautifully in their new attires. The management, including the chairman was a part of this function. Sister Chinna Rani, principal St. Agnes school was the guest of honour and Mr. Peter from Aloysius school also attended it. The best teacher, coordinator and the team who performed well in the first term were awarded gold coins as a token of appreciation.
This was followed by a narration on why Diwali is celebrated both in Tamilnadu and the north. We had a few scintillating dance performance from the children of grades I to VII and a nice mime show to elaborate depicting the story of Narakasura’s death. The finale was the bursting of crackers by the teachers and the students watched it.
