Today is the festival of Nowruz for our Afghan and Iranian students. It is a festival based on the Spring equinox and involves a lot of feasting and celebrations.
Additionally, some of our Muslim students will begin the month of fasting – the Holy Month of Ramadan – on Wednesday 22 March. This is a month of fasting between sunrise and sunset, prayer, reflection and community.
The academy will be supporting the students as they adjust to the rhythm of fasting during a busy school day.
