Children shared their various religious celebrations with each other by organising a special multi-faith day.

Pupils and staff at Queens Park Academy held DivEMas, a combination of Divali, Eid and Christmas.

The children invited their families to join them for an indoor picnic lunch on Thursday, December 18.

A school spokesman said: “As a wonderful multi-faith community we want to acknowledge and share our understanding of world faiths.

“DivEMas was an idea of one of our Year 4 pupils, who is also a school councillor. We agreed it was a great way to celebrate together, across the whole school.”

She added: “We believe this is a unique day that we will acknowledge every year at this special time.”
