Pupils and staff from Chilworth House School recently came together to celebrate the Hindu festival of Holi.

Teaching Assistant, Kumari took some time out to catch us up on how they celebrated the festival that is celebrated by millions of people across the globe.

Pupils and staff came together to join the jubilant occasion of fun and festivity to celebrate the ‘Festival of Colours’ Holi.  Children enjoyed learning about the mythological story behind the Holi festival. No celebration is complete without food and so pupils and staff sampled Indian curries and traditional food kindly prepared by a member of staff.

Later in the day, pupils and staff commemorated friendship and the colours of spring as they covered each other in rainbow – hued “Gulal”, a fine powder that comes in many different colours.

It was a wonderful day and all the mess was most definitely worth it!
