As we come towards the beginning of November, the school has dedicated a space to celebrate the Day of the Dead, el Dia de los Muertos.
It is a Catholic celebration that is held in Mexico to celebrate the memory of deceased family members. This festivity dedicated to the dead was recognized by UNESCO as part of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity in 2008.
In this co-operative project, students from 1st , 2nd, 5th and 6th Year worked across different school departments. In Religion, the students learned the facts and the significance of this celebration. In Art, they created candle sugar skulls holders and in Spanish, students learned about this tradition and lots of vocabulary related to it.
The altar, which is the central part is in memory of the deceased.
All students and staff are welcome to say their prayers here in memory of those they have lost. God bless them or as Catholics say in Mexico "Vayan con Dios". ¡Feliz Día de los Muertos!
