Students of Labasa School for Special Education have been urged to enjoy life especially during the Diwali celebrations.

The Chief Guest Jagdish Chand of Chand’s Safe Driving School director Jagdish Chand during the Diwali celebrations at the school yesterday said Diwali was for everybody.

“Diwali is celebrated by millions over the world for a variety of reasons, although the main theme which runs throughout is the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil,” Mr Chand said.

“Don’t look at your disability; be thankful to God for giving you the opportunity to live life and so enjoy to the fullest.

“Unite with your family members and friends with love and respect.”

12-year-old student, Zara Aliya of Vunivau, Labasa said she was happy to play with fire crackers with her friends.

“I always look forward to Diwali because this is the only time I get to play with fire crackers and make some noise,” Zara said.

Another student, Tosai Tuilagi of Lowcost Housing in Labasa said to him Diwali meant festival of colours.

“During Diwali I get to eat colourful sweets, play with colourful fire crackers and see colour decorations during the night,” Tosai said.

“Diwali is for everyone and I am very thankful to the school for being so thoughtful by organising a special celebration and providing sweets for us.”
