Diwali, a holiday celebrated in late October or early November across the world, stretches back more than 2,500 years. In India, the five-day celebration traditionally is the biggest holiday of the year. This year, the “light” and “home” were brought to the community by our staff and students at Ace Acumen Academy with decorations, and savory and sweet traditional treats.
Students took pride in telling stories of their own celebrations and were excited to talk about their experiences back home with others. It was surely a joyful festival of lights for the whole community.
As a student said that day, when you look at the candle, think about how flames can flicker or burn brightly. As you go about your day, take opportunities to ensure your flame burns brightly and you are always ready to help others in difficulty. Through patience and perseverance, good will wins over evil.
Happy Diwali to everyone!
On October 31, in Canada every year people dress up in spooky costumes, go door to door to “trick” or “treat”, watch Halloween movies, and carve jack-o-lanterns to participate in Halloween. This year, the staff and students at Ace Acumen participated in those same ways. They dressed up in costumes, carved pumpkins and watched a Halloween movie with some Halloween treats!
Towards the end of the day, both staff and students who dressed up in costume took part in a show for students to vote on who had the best costume on. Great prizes were distributed to those who were voted as ‘best costume’.
Ace Acumen wishes all a very Happy Halloween!
Thank you everyone, and stay safe.
