St. Xavier’s High School, Deoghar
DIWALI CELEBRATION, 2018
From darkness to the light that empowers us to commit
ourselves to good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity; lights
illuminate every corner of India during Diwali and the scent of incense
sticks hang in the air, mingled with the sounds of fire-crackers, joy,
togetherness and hope.
The celebration of Diwali ,'The festival of lights'
came alive at St. Xavier’s High School,
Deoghar on the 5th of November when the whole school wore a festive look with
Diyas and lanterns adorning the corridors and the assembly hall in bright
colours. The rangoli done by students the previous day added the perfect
setting to the festivity. The Principal lit the lamp to begin the assembly on
the auspicious occasion. The song on Diwali brought out the essence of the
festival -celebration of life and goodness. Students talked about the
significance of the festival. Studenta of Classes 1 & 2 performed a drama
on how good always conquered the evil and also about why and how Diwali is
celebrated across India. They gracefully presented the life of Lord Rama right
from his birth till his exile and the victory over the demon king Ravana. Through
a skit the senior students also sensitized everyone to the ill-effects of crackers;
they also shared the guidelines on being safe while bursting them. The students
showcased the spirit of Diwali through a mesmerizing dance performance. The
assembly concluded with Principal Sir giving away the message of a clean,
peaceful and a bright Diwali.
