Pupils at New Invention Junior School enjoy celebrating the festival of Diwali. Diwali is the Hindu 'Festival of Lights' and is celebrated by Hindus and Sikhs in Britain and all over the world. This festival falls on different days each year, usually celebrated in the  month of October or November.

At New Invention Junior School we have invited Sohan Kailey from Aashiyana Arts to put on a Diwali assembly for our pupils and do some Bhangra Dancing workshops with everyone. Pupils also learn more about this festival during RE lessons and love creating Diwali Art, especially Rangoli patterns.
