The girls in Oakeley had a great time celebrating Diwali, with proceedings led by Year 12 pupil Akshika. She did a presentation to her peers explaining what Diwali is and how she celebrates it at home. The girls were then shown some fun cartoon videos to help further their understanding of the festival. In the evening, there were sparklers for anyone who wanted one, sweets and colouring of Rangoli patterns. The girls could also light a candle to place by the log burner. It was a lot of fun and they learnt a lot.
