Little Gaters Learn About Diwali

Teaching inclusivity and global citizenship to our youngest students by learning about many cultures.
The Little Gate community has been celebrating Diwali, also called the Festival of Lights. Diwali is a Hindu celebration that centers around the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The children were invited to create traditional Rangolis which is an art form that uses colored rice, colored sand, quartz powder, or flower petals to create beautiful patterns on the floor. The Little Gate recreations were illuminated by several forms of light.
