• During April Welshpool High School welcomed Sakhya and Kavita into the school to speak with pupils from year 9-11 about the beliefs and practices of Hinduism (Sanatana Dharma). Throughout the day pupils enjoyed dressing up as some of the Hindu gods/goddesses and hearing about the symbolism associated with the objects they carry. During the afternoon, year 9 pupils witnessed the re-enactment of a Hindu wedding. This involved the bride wearing a red and gold sari and having her hands decorated with symbolic henna patterns. The couple literally 'tied the knot' on their clothes to represent their joining together and took 7 steps around the havan (sacred fire) to demonstrate their promises and hope for the marriage. The bridegroom finally gave a necklace to his bride (to be worn every day as a symbol of their marriage).

    Also taking part was Bethan Hughes who did incredibly well to take first prize in the Montgomeryshire Society English writing competition. The representatives of the society commented that the competition had been extremely strong and it is a credit to her talent and effort that she achieved this impressive result in group C (Years 11-13). Her result is even more impressive when you consider that she would have been competing against sixth form pupils in this category. Bethan is a hard working pupil in English and should be very proud of her achievement.
