Onam is the most popular festival of Kerala . This is a Hindu festival, celebrated with a great enthusiasm throughout Kerala for a period of ten days. Onam marks the homecoming of King Mahabali, a legendary king, who ruled Kerala in ancient times.
That period was believed to be the golden age of Kerala, people were happy, free from harm and complete harmony and prosperity was there.
On this occasion people wear new clothes, decorate their houses and put flower carpet called 'Pookalam' in front of their houses, to welcome the King Mahabali.
Thus, to mark this festival a house-wise flower Rangoli Competition was organized in the school activity hall, wherein all the participants were given rose and marigold flower petals and they had to bring petals of their own also to beautify their rangoli’s. The students marvelously decorated their rangoli with colourful petals.
