We are very lucky at Rachel Keeling Nursery School to employ the skills of Syeda to support and share the tradition of Mehndi as part of those celebrations. Along with cooking, learning about Islam and sharing our stories of celebration, Syeda brought the century old tradition of decorating skin with Henna to Rachel Keeling. Children sustained concentration and interest as Syeda carefully designed intricate patterns based on children's interests. Children patiently dried and washed off the residue before proudly sharing their new body art.
We really enjoy celebrating the rhythms and festivals of the year at Rachel Keeling. Eid Mubarak!
