Glendower was filled with colour and Indian culture to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali, a time to celebrate the victory of good over evil and a time to welcome spiritual “light” and harmony in our lives.
Some of the Year 5 girls presented the story of “Nava Durga” or nine Avataras of goddess Durga, the sacred female energy. Durga is worshipped during these 9 days as she manifests in various forms. This is a testament to the roles that women take on in their every day lives as they create, nurture, show compassion , love , determination, resilience , courage and finally , strength and valour to destroy evil and protect loved ones.
These talented girls beautifully presented the traditional Kuchipudi classical dance, an embodiment of yoga with rhythmic moves and poses.
