Festivals are a vital part of our school life. The curriculum incorporates thematic subject matter in lesson plans and class activities with the rich history and traditions demonstrated in our festivals and assemblies. Our festivals are celebratory and focus on significant markers of seasonal change and significant values and virtues central to human development. This past week students celebrated the festival of Saint Lucia. This festival of lights brightens the dark days of midwinter and celebrates the life of Saint Lucia, a saint known for her kindness and love.
