We enjoyed a delightful evening at the Waldorf School celebrating the Festival of Light. The learners from all the classes had crafted different designs of lanterns. The children walked across the playing field in front of the school to a circular path, carrying their lighted lanterns.
Class 7 received torches which were lighted one after the other while they recited a poem and then stepped forward together to lite the bonfire.
We proudly watched our little girl gazing with amazement at the flames.
After the spectacle, we (parents and children) went to their respective class rooms and shared soup and bread, which we had brought along. Joyce had loaned her ‘Wonderbag’ (cooking cushion) which retained the heat of the soup as if it had just been cooked.
It was an evening filled with community spirit and friendships.
