This week is the Hindu Festival Diwali, also known as the Festival of Light.

Bearnes are marking the occasions some special events to raise money for Goodwill Children’s Homes, a charity that supports and educates orphaned and destitute children in Southern India.

As part of Diwali Week Chestnuts chose to host a sponsored Banghra dance for 30 minutes!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the different dance styles and everyone completed the challenge. They are really looking forward to Wednesday where the whole school will be having a Diwali day.

Well Done Chestnuts!
