STAMFORD AMERICAN EARLY LEARNING VILLAGE STUDENTS INSPIRED BY DEEPAVALI WITH UNIQUE RANGOLI
Students of the newly opened Stamford American Early Learning Village and their teachers celebrated the Festival of Lights at their new campus with an unusual, but very creative Rangoli floor design!
Led by Art teacher Ben de Quadros-Wander, it took our Kindergarten students (aged 4- 5 years old) more than 4 hours to create this magnificent Rangoli. Measuring a diameter of almost 4 meters, the Rangoli is made up of individual student art pieces and various learning tools found every day in their classrooms.
“Deepavali celebrations have always been a prominent event at Stamford American as our diverse international community learns and appreciates different cultures along with Singapore. Our younger students moved into the new Early Learning Village this August, and with this move, we will continue to carry on the traditions from our main campus at Woodleigh, while marking our first Festival of Lights with something different and unique. The Rangoli was conceived by our art teachers and all classes worked collaboratively, preparing their share of different artwork to make this large Rangoli”, said Mrs Lavesa Devnani, Early Years School Deputy Principal.
The Deepavali celebrations featured a special concert and performance for students and their families, featuring energetic bhangra, classical and modern dancers. Needless to say everyone made a huge effort and dressed up in their Indian best for the day. It was a spectacular sight of color and inspiration as families from all nationalities came together to share the celebration.
