Eid ul-Fitr Celebrations – 29 July 2014

On the 29th July 2014 DGS was in a celebratory mood as we joined Muslims around the world observing the Eid Ul-Fitr holiday. The religious holiday celebrates the end of 30 days of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. DGS has a significant number of pupils who are Muslims and thus when a generous benefactor with an organisation in Mombasa county decided to sponsor this day’s celebrations, we were more than delighted to welcome them on board.
The benefactor sent over 5 of her staff, as well as a chef and the driver, to not only send messages of goodwill but also to interact and enjoy the day with the children which they did effortlessly. The children were served a delicious pilau (rice made with spices and meat), juice and a banana each for lunch before being given encouraging messages from the benefactor’s staff who also helped to distribute the remaining biscuits and sweets to all the children in the school.
This was a indeed an Eid Mubarak (Blessed Eid) for the pupils and staff of DGS.
