Hajj Week

Date: 22 September 2015

Across primary and secondary, pupils were involved in celebrating the month of Dhul Hijjah and the rites of Hajj. In the primary school, classes were tasked to research into different aspects of Hajj and use the information gained to put on a presentation in front of their peers and their parents. As a cross-curricular activity, it was amazing to see pupils so enthused and being able to express themselves. In secondary, KS3 classes viewed documentaries on Hajj and a film about the legendary traveller Ibn Battuta, did various art work, wrote poetry on the spiritual journey of Hajj and contributed to a whole school assembly - led by Mr Azzouni.

The school leadership would like to thank all the staff and pupils involved - especially Mrs Wahid, Ms Hussain and Mrs Musa - who worked tirelessley in such a short space of time to put on a fantastic experience for all those privileged to see and hear what took place. It was a magnificent way, by the Grace of Allah, to lead into the 9th (Day of Arafat) and 10th (Eid ul Adha) days of the blessed Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah.
