These art pieces were used for the Classroom Decoration Competition. The Primary 1 and 2 pupils did colouring, the Primary 3 and 4 pupils made Deepavali cards for their Hindu teachers and classmates, while the Primary 5 and 6 pupils created Deepavali rangoli designs to add a pop of colour in their classrooms.
On the day of celebration, pupils and staff were dressed in their ethnic costumes. Pupils and staff then showcased their colourful costumes at the Fashion Parade. During the celebration, pupils also learnt about the significance of Deepavali.
The highlight of the celebration was the mass dance taught by the teachers, and pupils were taught simple dance moves. The whole school then danced a simple Indian dance item together.
The celebration ended with the school leaders giving out goodies to the staff and senior citizens from Bishan East CC. It was a joy celebrating Deepavali together!
