Pupils celebrate festivities in style

Posted on: 08 November 2013

We could all use an excuse for a pizza and cake party, especially with preparations starting well in advance for the end of year KS1 and KS2 examinations…as the saying goes, "You can never start too early", which is a good thing why the autumn term has also brought along with it many celebrations for Fitrah pupils to take part in and enjoy.

For example, Eid ul Adha was celebrated in style - with the school hall decorated, staff and pupils (even a few parents and volunteers) got together to celebrate the festival of sacrifice and culmination of the blessed first 10 days of Dhul Hijjah.  With pizza, chips and cake on the menu pupils were more than satisfied.  Alhamdulillah fruit was also provided as starters to show the importance of a healthy lifestyle!

Each half term pupils of Fitrah school join together to celebrate and reflect on the previous weeks’ learning and activities/events that have taken place, as well as share general and Islamic knowledge.  The school quiz is not solely based on the most number of questions answered correctly, but merit points for groups that show kindness to other, patience and good team work skills. The winners of autumn term 2013 are As-Sabiroon – with the winning team having their name engraved on a plaque and each team member receiving a winners’ medal.

The celebrations continued to mark the start of the new Islamic Year, 1 Muharram 1435 AH, which fell on Tuesday 5th November 2013. This time the KS1 class was transformed to a party atmosphere, with all pupils dressed to impress.  The party food was icing on the cake, or in this case icing on the cupcake as all pupils were given a specially made cupcake decorated by the Infants class as a sweet start to the New Year.  There were even party games in the Infant class to round up the day from "Pass the Parcel" to "Musical chairs" with nasheeds; the day was a great hit masha’Allah and a beautiful start to the new Islamic year.
