Festival of lights celebration at Marbella school

Festival of lights celebration at Marbella school

Youngsters at the British School of Marbella were busy celebrating the Hindu festival of Diwali last week. The children and teachers dressed up in traditional costumes and spent the day learning all about the famous festival of lights. For Hindus Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year and is a favourite with children due to the lights, fireworks and sweets involved.
