Into the Light

Recently, the year 4s have been participating in a lantern making workshop run by the team from Into the Light.Students created sturdy triangular structures that were covered in butchers paper and decorated with wool and tissue paper. They have space for a small candle inside to illuminate the outer designs and decorations.

Into the Light is a community celebration that gathers people from Whittlesea Township and surrounding areas to walk together and parade with lanterns as a personal, public and collective ritual to leave the darkness of Winter and welcome Spring.

This year’s theme is ‘Threads that connect’ which asks how do we connect with others? How do we reach those with whom are not connected? How do we welcome them into the fabric of the community? The theme appreciates that difference within community need not define nor divide a community.

There will be free paricipatory activities and performances in the afternoon followed by a community lantern parade and finale.
