GHDS Inter-School Rangoli Competition set for Wednesday

As Guyanese prepare for the “Festival of Lights” which will be held on Monday, October 24, 2022, the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha is putting the final touches to its annual Inter-School Rangoli Competition. This annual event is being held countrywide, but the Georgetown leg is set for Wednesday, October 19, 2022 at the Dharmic Kendra in Prashad Nagar.
Rangoli is an art form that originated in the Indian subcontinent. In Rangoli, patterns are created on the floor or on a tabletop using materials such as powdered limestone, red ochre, dry rice flour, coloured sand, quartz powder, flower petals, and coloured rocks.


Several schools have confirmed their participation in this year’s event. These include St. Joseph High, Queen’s College, St. Roses High, School of the Nations, Tucville Secondary, Rajiv Ghandi University, Kingston High, Tutorial High, Bishop’s High, North Georgetown Secondary, Marian Academy, New Campbellville Secondary, Cummings Lodge Secondary, Brickdam Secondary and Mae’s Secondary schools.
These schools will be competing for prizes and trophies, as well as for bragging rights for a year.
