On Tuesday the 20th of April our Primary students were welcomed back to school by Ramadan Man to mark their first day of Ramadan with us for 2021. Ramadan Man visited all of our Primary classrooms throughout the morning, delivering a very special gift for all students which they could take home and enjoy after breaking their daily fast. Our students were overjoyed to have Ramadan Man with them in their classrooms, they were extremely grateful to have received such a sweet reward.
As both Primary & Secondary students started Term 2 today, we would like to wish all parents, staff and students Ramadan Mubarak, we hope you all have a blessed and happy Ramadan this year!
