It was a day when young Stafordians turned into little artisans,
With creativity and colours- red, yellow and cyan,
It was a day when celebration of love between brothers and sisters began,
And making the best ‘knot of protection’ was the only plan.
The auspicious day of Raksha Bandhan was celebrated at Staford School by organizing a Rakhi making competition for classes I to III. Raksha Bandhan is a special occasion to celebrate the bond between brothers and sisters symbolized by the tying of a holy thread, ‘Rakhi’ around the wrist of brothers. The children joined in this celebration, which was aimed at strengthening the bond of love and to instill the virtues of love and harmony among the young, growing Stafordians.
All the children participated with great zeal and zest in the creative competition of Rakhi making. The competition saw a number of creative and colourful rakhis being made by the students. The rakhis that were made were an enviable lot and a fusion of modern with traditional styles was seen.
The competition was judged by principal mam Ms. Vijaya Kumar and Mr. Ratnakar on the basis of originality. The designs were so creative and fascinating that it was very difficult to come out with a single winners’ list. Yet, in the final assessment the first place was bagged by Sapphire House, the second place went to Emerald House, and the third place was shared jointly by Amber and Garnet House respectively.
