On November 15, the Princeton Day School community came together in the Fox Room to celebrate Diwali, the Festival of Lights. In an event that was coordinated by the Community and Multicultural Development Team (CMDT) and the Upper School India Club, more than 100 members of our community, from the Lower, Middle and Upper Schools, came together to learn more about the holiday. The group was also able to hear from our student leaders, Vivek Kasubaga '18, India Club Co-Head, and Rahul Bhatia '18, Senior Class President, about what the Princeton Day School has meant to them. South Asian culture was celebrated through song, dance, and an original fourth grade play called "The Story of Raman." Light snacks, lively conversation, and good company made for a successful event and, as Head of School Paul Stellato remarked, "This evening will make us look forward to the Diwali Celebration for next year." Here are some photos from the Diwali celebration.
