Pre School children celebrate Holi

Pre School welcomed current parent, Mrs Jesthi to Billinge House, who spoke to them about the Hindu festival of Holi.

The children learnt that the celebrations start with a Holika bonfire where people gather to sing and dance. The next morning is a ‘carnival of colours’ celebration where people chase each other to cover them with coloured paints and powder.

Dr Jesthi brought some face paints with her so the children could paint their faces and wish each other Happy Holi!
