Eid Mubarak! This is a common greeting during Eid, which means, “Have a blessed Eid!” Eid-al-Fitr marks the end of Ramadan, a month of fasting and prayer. As a public holiday in Mauritius, it’s important for Hampton Primary pupils to understand its significance. Engaging our pupils around the role of religion in the historical, cultural and social development of Mauritius and other nations is critical to developing a world view.
To that end, Hampton Primary School was delighted to welcome Mr. Musab Isah to talk to our pupils about Eid, Ramadan and how people of the Muslim faith celebrate this occasion. As part of their cooking classes, pupils made vermicelli cakes too. Hampton Primary is both a family and an educational community. As our invited guest discussed, Eid is a time for thanksgiving to be celebrated by gathering with friends and family.
