“The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate.” Oprah Winfrey
Diwali is a festival of lights. It symbolizes the spiritual ‘victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance’. The Diwali celebration at DPS, GBN on November 4, 2023, was filled with zeal and enthusiasm. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, the school held a grand Diwali Bonanza. Luminous lights, traditional decorations, and smiling faces of students and parents illuminated the school premises in a festive atmosphere. The event was graced by Mr. Vineet Nayyar, Pro Vice Chairman and Ms. Reva Nayyar, member of School Managing Committee. Everyone was engaged in the fun games and activities at the Bonanza which was a hive of excitement. A variety of beautiful items were available at the stalls that reflected the festival's essence. As the corridors filled with incense, a scent of tradition filled the air. The children were also entertained and excited by a funfair section that included rides. The primary wing students showcased their creativity by putting up an exhibition – Reflections, wherein they transformed waste materials into art. The exhibition aimed to reflect on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and promote awareness of sustainability among students and the community. Their creativity was supported by teachers, parents, and the School community. It demonstrated the potential of young minds to drive change and contribute to a better future.
The event not only celebrated the triumph of light over darkness but also strengthened the bonds of unity and togetherness within our School community. The memories of this grand celebration will be cherished by all, reminding us of the beauty and significance of Diwali for days to come.
