Dear Parents and Carers,
Eid Mubarak to everyone!
Eid is an extremely special celebration for Muslims as it marks the end of Ramadan and is known as the "Festival of breaking fast." It’s a joyful time spent with family and friends, celebrating Eid with the people you love, eating a lot of food (mainly desserts), and thanking God for all of the love and strength Muslims have been given. On this day, many people sit down to a feast with family and friends, wearing their best attire, and donate money before going to the mosque. For many children, this is a celebration to look forward to; many are spoiled with new clothes, treats, gifts, and money. We hope you have a lovely Eid!
We will celebrate EID in school on Monday 24th April.
Each class will have a party in the afternoon on this day. We would like children to come to school in their special clothes/ party clothes and wear them all day.
We would appreciate you helping with food for the parties. The children will be having a normal school dinner, but some treats for the parties would still be appreciated. Please could you send the treats in with your child on this day and they will be distributed for the children to share. We request that you make sure there are no nuts, strawberries or bananas in anything to ensure children with allergies are safe. School will provide drinks, cups and plates.
Thank you for your continued support and we hope the children enjoy celebrating this occasion.
