This term the children of Preparatory researched the "Butter Lamp Festival" from Tibet and gave the rest of the school a little presentation about this festival.
Researching it was the perfect opportunity to find out more about where Tibet is located and many other facts about Tibet such as what clothes do people wear there, what kind of music do they listen to and lots of geographical facts.
Over the following term Preparatory will study and learn about many more festivals and celebrations from around the world and different religions.
If parents would like to share a celebration they know very well with Preparatory, please speak to Miss Sylvia or Mr Terence.
Parents are always very welcome in school!
