Holi Celebrations 2019
27 March, 2019
Holi is an ancient Indian festival and was originally known as Holika. It is also known as the festival of colours and friendship, where people playfully throw coloured powder on each other and say “Holi Hai” (meaning it is Holi!). Colour represents love, life, inspiration, innovation and creation. We celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Holi is predominantly celebrated by Hindus but the celebrations have also included other religions in India. Holi occurs on the full moon and is a celebration of spring and fertility. This colourful festival removes barriers and brings people together. Students at Hindi VSL Blackburn had a fun time celebrating Holi on Tuesday 19 March. May you be blessed this Holi with many beautiful colours representing love, life and happiness!

On Saturday 23rd February Geelong gathered again to celebrate its cultural diversity in the famous Pako Festa. The VSL with its two campuses at Matthew Flinders and North Geelong offers an invaluable service to the community and a group of about 50 students and teachers had the opportunity to proudly represent our school in the much-admired highlight of the celebration – the Pako Festa Parade. The sun meant well on that day and our group had great fun and a fantastic experience engaging with community. Astrid Paape
