A variety of festivals are celebrated throughout the year at The London Acorn School.
Seasonal festivals, such as Michaelmas Festival and The May Day Festival, serve to connect us with the cyclical rhythms of the year, fostering a natural reverence for the wonder and beauty of life and nature.
Children of any ethnic or religious background are welcome at our school, and we respect the individual beliefs of families. We celebrate a range of religious festivals, connected to our studies in Main Lesson and Humanities. From Christian festivals, such as Christmas and Easter, to Jewish, Hindu, Islamic, Sikh and Buddhist festivals throughout the year, we strive to celebrate what is universal.
The children are actively involved in the preparation for each celebration through activities, songs and stories. Furthermore, festivals are a wonderful opportunity for not only the whole school to come together, but the wider community of parents as well.
Here is an example of just some of the festivals we celebrate throughout the year. Many more are celebrated through assemblies, class plays, and a variety of events.
