Celebrating Raksha Bandhan in Rūma Kōwhai              

Last week the children in Rūma Kōwhai celebrated Raksha Bandhan with Meena. The celebration is centered around the tying of a thread or amulet around the wrist. It is also known as brother and sister festival.

Elena – It was fun and exciting making the rakhi because it was a new thing to do.

Len – We got to tie the raki on our friends right wrist.

Angelina- I liked making the rakhi because you got to chose the beads and the different coloured string. We sat in a circle and gave them to a secret person or a friend from Kōwhai. I liked it because you got to stand up and the person said “thank you”.
