Broadfield classrooms turned into temples for a festival of lights
A RELIGIOUS festival of lights was celebrated by all the children at a Broadfield school.
Pupils at Seymour Primary School got to dress up in traditional Hindu clothing, try new food and learn about Diwali during two awareness days to educate them on the religious festival.
School classrooms were turned into temples, with rows of lights scattered across the floor, last Wednesday and Thursday.
Neha Nalawade, a teacher at the school, said: "Each year we focus on a different religious festival or celebration to raise awareness and teach the children about other cultures.
