Diwali celebrations

Diwali 2020 – online workshops for schools

We have been working with partners in the region to prepare a special series of videos to be shown around the time of Diwali (November 14th) to offer an insight into the Hindu faith and celebrations as well as South Asian culture in general.

The first video will feature a visit to the Hindu temple in Newcastle and interviews with local families. Its showing will be timed to be followed by a live question and answer session.

The two other videos will be able to be viewed by schools at a time which is convenient to them. One features storytelling and puppetry, the other; a lively dance workshop.

The programmes were designed initially for primary aged pupils but can be accessed by junior secondary and special school pupils.

To register interest in accessing these specially commissioned films, please email karen.smith@durham.gov.uk Further information is included in the attached flyer.
