A celebration of lights

It was the first big joint event in the new kindergarten at the Fasangarten location: On 19 November the light festival took place in the kindergarten.

In the late afternoon, the focus was on the topic of light, which is particularly important now in the dark season of the year. The children and their parents gathered around many small self-designed lights in the middle of the garden, creating a very special atmosphere. Songs were sung in German, French and English, all with the theme of light or candlelight.

No light, no shadow - this was shown by the shadow theatre, which children from different groups performed to the sounds of Antonio Vivaldi's "Four Seasons". When it was already quite dark, the preschool children showed a fire dance to the music of Carmina Burana around the many little lights. The movement of the cloths and the flickering of the candlelight created an impressive atmosphere.

The highlight of the program was the lighting of the chain of lights. Each child had a candle. The first one was lit and the fire was passed from candle to candle until everyone was lit. So the children could experience that light becomes brighter and brighter when you share it with others.

The evening ended with a great buffet with lots of goodies, punch and cocoa. The kindergarten children had baked cookies together with some parents in the morning. The kindergarten team of the European School Munich would like to thank all parents who contributed to the success of the evening.
