Every year, the children await the Christmas celebration with a lot of enthusiasm, and 2018 was no different!
The main reason, is the Cottage Decoration Competition which sees fierce, good spirited competition among the children’s ‘houses’ to decorate their cottage in elaborate art and design.
An annual event, the planning starts months before where children select a theme and decorate their cottages accordingly (there are 5 boys cottages and 1 Girls’ Hostel).
A small amount is handed over to the children to invest in buying the basics for decorations, and a lot of ingenuity and creativity results, with each cottage trying to build the biggest and best creations to celebrate the festival.
The best three designs are acknowledged and all of the cottages and the children get Christmas gifts!
