Eid-al-Fitr

posted 29 Jun 2016, 05:37 by J Croxon

Eid-al-Fitr marking the end of Ramadan, is the most important annual Islamic holiday.  Eid-al-Fitr is expected to fall on either Tuesday 5 July, Wednesday 6 July or Thursday 7 July depending on the moon sighting this year.

Lea Forest Primary Academy understand, as it is with holidays in other faiths, this is a time of prayer, charity, celebration, family get-togethers and gift giving to celebrate this joyous occasion.   As a result we are able to authorise one day next week for religious observance. 

The Academy will remain open to all those not celebrating Eid.
