ISR Diwali Mela Celebration

Saturday, 4 November 2023

Last Saturday, we celebrated another colorful Diwali Mela Celebration at our ISR Campus in Neuss with hundreds of participants!

Alongside our Indian Community at ISR, many friends and guests from various cultural backgrounds joined us to commemorate this festive occasion and enjoy a memorable time together.

Ms. Sharma, ISR’s IB & External Exams Coordinator, together with our two Indian Community Representatives, Ms. Uday and Ms. Verma, our engaged Indian Community, as well as Ms. Mudgal and Ms. Gupta, who guided our guests through the program, dedicated a tremendous amount of effort to make this remarkable cultural event at ISR a resounding success! The festivities started with welcome words from our ISR Management Team, Ms. Lyons, and Mr. Soliman, who both highlighted the important meaning of the festival – the triumph of light over darkness.

The day unfolded with numerous dance performances by both children and adults, accompanied by a wonderful cultural program. In addition to the stage program, ISR hosted ten Indian Street food stalls, offering an array of Indian delicacies, snacks, and savory treats. Another highlight of the event was the Children’s Diwali Decoration Competition, with the chance for participants to win exciting prizes, including an ISR Summer School Voucher for next year. Moreover, the Diwali Bazaar showcased an array of handcrafted items that left a lasting impression on all attendees. The day ended in a Dandiya & Bollywood evening with a live DJ on site.

With 60 nationalities represented at ISR, it’s a source of pride for us to introduce diverse traditions and cultures to our international community.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who played a part in making this day an overwhelming success, and we’re already eager for next year’s Diwali Celebration at ISR!
