St Andrew’s Primary Eid Celebrations

4th May 2023

This week I was delighted to attend a special assembly to celebrate Eid at St Andrew’s Primary School in Newport.


Eid al Fitr is an important celebration for the Muslim community. It translates as "the festival of the breaking of the fast" and takes place after Ramadan.


I was pleased to see parents, governors, religious leaders, and partner organisations unite to celebrate with the pupils.


The assembly was just one of many activities that took place throughout the day. Pupils also took part in cookery sessions, craft and musical performances.


I would like to thank the children at St Andrew's for inviting me to join them on this very special occasion.
