Ramadan celebrated in Year 1 Gold

Year 1 Gold welcomed IGS parent Chirine Dada into their classroom to share information on Ramadan.

“Ramadan is a special month where we take some time in our usually very busy lives to reflect more and do less,” Chirine said.

“We focus on being kind to those around us, our parents and friends and we spend a lot of quality time with them.

“Adults who can fast don’t eat or drink whilst the sun is out, and little kids who don’t yet fast partake in craft activities to better understand what the month is about.

“Binoculars are what we use to spot the crescent moon, which signals the start of the next lunar month and thus Ramadan. It also signals when we celebrate Eid at the end of Ramadan.”

Her daughter, of Year 1 Gold said “For Eid we spend time with our families and wrap presents for our cousins, uncles, aunties, grannies and grandpas.”

We wish all at IGS, from all cultural and spiritual backgrounds, a wonderful term break.
