Best wishes for Diwali

from w
It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness…
An occasion to celebrate Victory over defeat,  Light over darkness,  Awareness over Ignorance, An Occasion to Celebrate Life …. May this auspicious occasion light up your life with Happiness, Joy and Peace.
Happy Diwali

Methodist School Joins Festivity  October 23 by Ana Sovaraki, SUVA

Teachers of Ballantine Memorial School (BMS) came together yesterday to celebrate Diwali at the school in Delainavesi, Lami. Principal Mereoni Motukiliu said this was part of promoting racial harmony and multiculturalism in the school.
“We have quite a number of Hindu teachers here in the school so we decided to have this in the school so we could enjoy Diwali with them and show them that we appreciate them and we appreciate Diwali,” Ms Motukiliu said. “We iTaukei teachers decided to wear sarees and salwar kameez as a sign of our appreciation and significance that we too enjoy this time of the year as well.”
She said she has always stressed to the students and teachers of the school the importance of living in peace and harmony. “So for us it is not only about saying but it’s the doing that’s really important. This way the students see that we are practicing what we preach,” Ms Motukiliu said.
The school’s head of language department, Rajinesh Lingam, said they were really grateful for the kind gesture.
“This is a Methodist school and they have a lot of religious events at the school that we attend and it’s good to see that they’ve appreciated us and host this for us,” Mr Lingam said.

He said when school resumes on Friday they would be distributing sweets to the teachers and students at the school.V
