Raksha Bandhan is a sacred bond of affection between brothers and sisters. It is the day when sisters tie ‘Rakhi’ on brother’s wrist, who in return pledge to take care and protect the sister from all harm. Keeping in mind the festival of Raksha Bandhan and to imbibe the same spirit in the children, students of Class 6th to 8th and toddlers’ wing of JK Public School, Kunjwani took an active participation in Rakhi Making and Kite Making activity. The students showcased their talent by making beautiful and decorated kites and rakhis. The purpose of this activity was to enhance the cognitive ability, critical thinking, spatial and bodily kinesthetic skills among the children.
