Virtual Reality, Reality as a Virtue with Jaimen McMillan


Virtual Reality
Reality as a Virtue
with Jaimen McMillan

There is a battle going on for the minds and souls of your children. Their bodies are secondary casualties, victims of “friendly fire.”  The battle is real.  The enemy is virtual. The elusive lure of virtual reality – TV’s, computers, Gameboys, video games, and   electronic music threaten to program the children’s minds, paralyze their bodies, while shrewdly shaping their souls. This lecture will unmask these threats to see that the greatest danger lies in our not consciously countering it and provide techniques to help our children navigate more safely through the virtual worlds. Real answers might be sought by simply “getting real”; from direct experiences from the “school of hard knocks.” Could interacting with the three-dimensional real world give us clues to move from the virtual towards virtue?

Session begins Friday evening 7:30-9:30 pm, and continues Saturday 9:00 am - 5:00 pm.
Session Fee is $175 (early bird $150 before September 15).

Diwali Celebration


Join us on Saturday, October 25 from 4:00 to 9:00 pm in the High School Gymnasium for a very special cultural event where we will celebrate the Festival of Diwali, perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals. It is celebrated throughout India, as well as in Indian communities throughout the world. Diwali is also known as the "festival of lights," for the common practice is to light small oil lamps (called diyas) and place them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well as on roof-tops and outer walls. The celebration of the festival is invariably accompanied by the exchange of sweets and the explosion of fireworks. It heralds the approach of winter and the beginning of the sowing season.

Through the collaborative efforts of our Food For Thought Program, our Diversity Committee, and a devoted group of our families who are native to India, we bring you an amazing evening of food, fun, and nourishing celebration. Come enjoy delicious and exotic culinary delights lovingly prepared using traditional home recipes. The rich cultural program will include a welcome ceremony, cultural activities such as Rangoli designs (floor decorations), Mehandi (henna) painting, decorating and lighting of traditional clay lamps, chanting Shanti Mantras (prayers for peace), and finally, a wonderful array of Classical Music and Dance Performances by students, parents, and friends. We will finish the evening with a fantastic firework display.

Our Diwali festival is open to both the KWS community as well as to the general public. Help us spread the word to your family, friends and neighbors. We would love to celebrate this special event with a lively and abundant crowd.  

$10 per adult and $7 for children 12 and under.
