Diwali AssemblyHannah Webzell
On Friday 3rd November, Mr Chaggar and Mr Upple, from the Medway Towns Gurdwara, visited to deliver a whole school assembly on Diwali. They spoke about the religious festival from both a Hindu and Sikh perspective, giving details of the stories behind the festival.
They spoke about our core value of respect and how Sikhism is a faith that believes everyone is equal. Mr Upple also spoke about how we must respect each other, regardless of their religion and beliefs etc.
At the end of the assembly, a special diva lamp was lit and music was played for a moment of reflection. The pupils from across both KS1 and KS2 also had some great questions for our visitors!
