Prep Marks Eid al-Fitr

Following an assembly on Ramadan and Eid-al-Fitr in March, pupils at Prep celebrated the joyous festival of Eid-al-Fitr on 24th April by dressing up in brightly coloured clothes. They also enjoyed an array of festive food prepared by our amazing kitchen staff, whilst enjoying the beautiful Eid decorations around the lunch hall.  It was lovely to see the lively atmosphere in the lunch hall and around the school, where pupils who celebrated Eid shared their experience of Eid celebrations with each other.

What is Eid-al-Fitr?

Eid-al-Fitr, which is also known as the ‘Festival of breaking the fast’, is celebrated at the end of the Holy month of Ramadan. Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan (9th month of the Islamic calendar) during which, they abstain from consuming food or drink between sunrise and sunset. Eid is an important Muslim festival celebrated by Muslims around the world.  Eid celebrations include a communal morning prayer followed by a festive meal. Festivities also include exchanging gifts, decorating homes and wearing new clothes. Eid is a time to celebrate and enjoy time with families and friends and offering gratitude for all the blessings.


Our wonderful catering team decorated the dining hall and served a delicious lunch with meat and vegetarian options.
