Hindu Festival of Colours: Holi

We began by learning a little about the history  and traditions of the Hindu religion. Then we learnt about worshipping at the temple, mandir or at shrine in a corner of a room at home. Later we viewed artefacts and learned how some of the most popular festivals are celebrated in India and around the world. This was followed by learning a traditional Hindu dance that is often performed at festivals. The children were really enthusiastic and keen to learn. 

 The afternoon will end with a Holi festival tradition, throwing coloured powder paint!
