Every year, more than 1 billion people celebrate Diwali, the five-day Festival of Lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. This year, Taunton School International Middle School joined in the festivities.

From Thursday 4th to Tuesday the 9th of November, many people all over the world celebrated Diwali. At Taunton School International Middle School, students learned about the festival during its run up, and ended the five-day period with their own mini Festival of Light.

Students lit sparklers in the garden and shared some traditional Indian sweets with each other, which went down a treat – the ‘milk cake’ was a particular favourite. Finally, they ended the night by designing and making their own colourful Diwali lanterns, which the students have taken back to the boarding house to brighten up their bedrooms.

Embracing and celebrating diversity is a key part of studying at The Grange, or Taunton School International Middle School. Students enjoy learning about different religions and cultures, and sharing and celebrating traditions and special occasions. Happy Diwali from all of us here at TSIMS.
