I go to the Green School in Bali. I am learning about taking care of the environment.  I learned how to make moss graffiti but my classroom’s turned into mold. We are going to figure out why it didn’t grow and try again. We think it got too much sun because moss needs a lot of moisture.

I also learned about the IRESPECT values which I’m going to tell you about today. IRESPECT stands for

Green School IRespect Values

I think these are awesome.

Saraswati day and my bali dance

May 2th was Saraswati Day which is another religious day in Bali where the Balinese perform ceremonies like they did on Nyepi with the Ogoh-Ogohs. This day is to worship the goddess Saraswati who is the goddess of knowledge, art, dance, and music. It is interesting that my daddy remembers praying to this goddess too in India. On this day in Bali, girls perform dances at school. We did a special ceremony at the Green School. I was one of the dancers. I danced the Baliness dance named Rejang. I was nervous when we first started practicing, but now that I’m good at it I’m fine. Afterwards, I felt beautiful like the goddess.
