Happy Dashain 2066!

Our friends in Nepal and some of our own pupils and their families, are currently enjoying celebrating the festival of Dashain. In assembly today, we learnt that this festival celebrates the triumph of good over evil and the defeat of the demon Mahisha by the Goddess Durga. We enjoyed listening to the story of the Goddess Durga - it was very exciting and we all cheered when she won!

This is a picture of the Goddess, she had 1000 arms and in each one she held a weapon from the Gods.
