Raksha Bandhan is a special occasion to celebrate the virtuous bond of love between brother and sister which is one of the deepest and noblest of all human emotions. To commemorate this festival, a 'Rakhi' competition was organised for the students of Don Bosco English Medium School Savedi on 03 August 2020. The students from Class 01 to 10 actively participated in this event by making beautiful rakhis using different articles. Children thoroughly enjoyed this activity that tickled their creative side.

The teachers prepared the students by taking online sessions and showing online video links of different ways of preparing 'rakhis' by the DIY (Do it Yourself) method. Children prepared the rakhis using their own creativity. The photos were uploaded on their Google Classroom and the judges evaluated the pictures and declared the winners as per the respective classes. All the students got a chance to participate and an opportunity to win a certificate since it was as per their respective class. Certificates were awarded to the winners, online. The parents and the students were glad that the school kept up to its value of building families inspite of the restrictions due to the pandemic.
