Day of the Dead Celebration

In Mexico, the Day of the Dead is a profoundly moving religious observance in which our deceased relatives and friends are remembered. Differing vastly from the macabre Halloween festivities, the Day of the Dead celebration is an explosion of colour and life-affirming joy.

Here at MLZ, we celebrate the cultural diversity of our students, our staff and the suburb in which we live and work.

Consequently we took the opportunity to mark the Dia de Los Muertos with a variety of activities: face painting, creating papel picados (designs with cut papers), Calaveras (humorous tombstone epitaphs), creating... and eating... marshmallow sugar skulls, and a quiet prayer time on the theme.

Viva Mexico!
