Onam Celebrations and Rangoli Competion at JMMS
Bringing the cultural diversity of our motherland India to the village children is part of the work culture in John Martyn Memorial School. Under-privileged children from 23 neighbourhoods, children who rarely travel outside their own villages, got a chance to celebrate Onam, the harvest festival of Kerala. In the morning assembly, information was given regarding how during the Onam season, the whole state, irrespective of the religions, welcomes their ex-emperor Mahabali on his annual visit. In the traditional style, the children of the four houses, Jal, Prithvi, Agni, soorya decorated the school’s front yard with fresh flowers. Thus festival of Onam was turned into an occasion for Inter-house Rangoli competition.
