Class 7th students (age group 12yrs & 13yrs) are learning by investigating the patterned line drawings of two types i.e. Celtic patterns and Mehndi patterns on size 21cmX21cm material like paper, cloth etc. •To begin with students are designing patterns of Celtic art and Mehndi art separately within the ridge area of palm shape using pencil or paint brush. • In the second phase any medium like fevicol (an adhesive used for wood, plastic etc) mixed with some stain will be used to give an embossed effect to those design patterns. •In the third phase students will be creating designs with the culmination of Celtic and Mehndi using their imagination. Mehndi is actually a species of plant. It is commonly called HEENA. The leaves of this plant are dried and grinded in form of powder. Thick paste is made of that powder and poured in a cone. Then designs are drawn on hands, feet, arms etc (like tattoo). In India, it is considered to be auspicious to apply Mehndi before happy occasion. Rather it is MUST of girls/ladies to apply during wedding and on some special festival. In some parts of our country it mandatory for married women to apply it during festivals.

On Saturday 21st May 2011 an new partnership was forged between Wade Deacon High School and the Desi Indian Restaurant in Widnes.Year 8 pupils from Wade Deacon were given the opportunity to work with chefs and learn about Indian cuisine. Head chef Foyzul , assistant chef Miah and Restaurant Manager Rex worked with a group of students making a selection of authentic Indian dishes. They demonstrated a range of skills and processes and worked closely with the pupils during a 3 hour session. The pupils were shown a wide range of Indian spices and how to blend them to make bases for a range of curries and side dishes. On the menu was Bombay Aloo, Chicken Bhuna and Pilau rice. The next phrase of the partnership will be for pupils to research traditional Indian recipes. Using the Blog page set up on this site pupils from Maharaja Aggarsain School will be sending us their favorite traditional meals. There will then be 2 more practical cooking sessions before a Final "Cook-off" .At that time Chef's Faz , Miah and Rex will be invited back to judge and taste the best cook.
