Hanukkah, Christmas & Khushali

Thank you to our special visitors for coming in to share their festive family traditions this week. There was dancing, stories, crafts and lots of fun. The Early Starts learned about Hanukkah and Khushali and the Grade 1’s learned about the birth of Jesus and how it became the story of Christmas. These traditions come from very different cultures – Christian, Ismali and Jewish – but they share the same ideas of light, peace, hope and love. It is so great for the children to learn about culture directly from families in their very own community. Parents – if there is anything you would like to share with the children, please contact your classroom teacher and they can arrange for you to pay a virtual visit to the children too!
