April 2nd 2022, marked the beginning of Ramadan. Many students, families and staff in LCCC and worldwide are observing Ramadan, during this 9th month of the Islamic calendar. Ramadan is coming to an end and soon will be the celebration of Eid!
Ramadan is of great significance for all Muslims throughout the world. It is a time of abstaining from food and drink during daylight hours. It is also a time for introspection, prayer, and the reading of the Qur’an.
Ramadan is not only observed by adults but children as well. For kids who participate in Ramadan, it can be a special month with a lot of things to do, consider and practice.
Ramadan can be challenging but really rewarding. It can be difficult or challenging for children, especially those that live in a non-Islamic country to get excited about Ramadan, in the same way that they may about Christmas and Easter. Some kids may consider fasting for the whole month and follow the same practices. They are also instructed to avoid negative practices and follow the rules as per Islamic teachings.
At LCCC we want to ensure our students and staff are at comfort and have a space for these practices. We want to understand, learn more about Ramadan and share the same enthusiasm for the upcoming celebration of Eid.
LCCC wants to make sure everyone is included and celebrated .
We want to continually teach about cultures, religions and traditions
What better way to do this? Learning of course! Children learn best through activities.
It is important that we captivate our children’s interest in fun and creative ways.
Thank you to our P2 Lead Educator Nafiseh for implementing fun learning activities for Ramadan!
