Hello SWL Families,
As Monday, October 24 is Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, we will be having a casual day so that students can dress in their cultural attire. Diwali is the biggest and most important holiday in India and is celebrated by more than 1 billion Hindus around the world. The interpretation of the holiday varies across religions and countries, as other sects, such as Buddhism, Sikhism and Jainism, have adopted their own versions of the holiday. But there's one common theme no matter where people celebrate: the victory of good over evil.
As we move into some cooler temperatures, I would like to remind students and parents that students will still be expected to go outside for the second half of lunch. It is important that students come to school dressed for the weather.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week-end.
Principal, Sir Wilfrid Laurier School
