Festival of Light
On Tuesday the 2nd of December, Newman RC College held a Festival of Light.
The event celebrated the common theme of light that links so many key religious festivals at this time of year. Last half term saw members of our community celebrating Eid al-Adha and the festival of Diwali, Hanukkah is celebrated in December and then Christmas is celebrated at the end of term.
As a Catholic school, our faith and mission demands that we celebrate other faiths and festivals.
At the festival our children shared their perspective on the different festivals, as well as outlining how the celebration of faith and belief forms so much part of the work we do in our lessons. We also took the opportunity to celebrate the work of those students whose attitudes and efforts support the cohesion work of the college.
