Diwali at Surrey Hills

The Arcare Surrey Hills community celebrated Diwali in November.

Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs. To celebrate the holiday, many team members came to work dressed in their brightly coloured Sarees, also bringing along extra garments for the residents to dress in.

The community enjoyed trying Indian sweet treats during High Tea, and watching on as the team performed a Bollywood dance.

Arcare recognises the importance of celebrating the holidays, traditions and cultures of the clients and team members within our communities. With many team members at Arcare Surrey Hills, coming from an Indian and/or Hindu background, residence manager, Chetan saw the importance of recognising Diwali.
