Thank you to all the year 8 pupils who are completing a fast today in aid of the British Red Cross. The pupils who selected to complete the fast chose not to eat during school hours and were only able to drink water.
At lunch time they were able to go to a quiet room and spend time with Mrs Hall, Head of RE, and Imam Amjad, who came in to speak to all of our pupils in year 8 last month about the importance and meaning of Ramadan. Imam Amjad spent some time doing calligraphy with pupils, writing their names in Arabic.
Just before the end of the school day, pupils who took part will be able to receive a treat for when they choose to break the fast. All the sponsorship money raised will be donated to the British Red Cross, an organisation that works tirelessly to support people in need.
Thank you to Imam Amjad for coming in to school today and thank you to all the pupils taking part.
