Deepavali celebrations in Aleeza's school

Hello bloggers,

Hope you all are well and happily crafting away. I have had such a busy week that I could hardly find time to blog though I did manage to find time for crafting.

I thought I must give you a peep into what I have been up to... So here are some pictures of Deepavali (the Indian festival of lights)  that was celebrated in a rather grand fashion in Aleeza's school - thanks to the multi-cultural school policy.

I helped decorate the lobby of the school 

This is the Principal wearing Indian clothes - don't you think she looks lovely?

The children tucking into pizza as it was one of the kid's birthday on the same day as well.
The two ladies who are standing are the class teachers - they both looked so pretty in Indian clothes. 


Will come and visit soon.

Hello Monica. What beautiful, happy pictures. This brings back so many happy memories for me when I taught in schools with the young children, fantastic occasions, and one to be treasured.
With love, Sandra xxx
