On Thursday 28th April the QEGS community came together for a shared Iftar at school. The event celebrates the diverse community we live in and shows support to the pupils, students, families and staff who fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

Around 150 parents, pupils and friends came to school for the evening feast.  Parents and carers prepared and brought along food to be shared and there was a small amount of food provided by the School Catering Manager, Dale Sutton.

Mrs Gammon welcomed everyone to the community event and thanked everyone for their generosity.

It was lovely to hear ideas from parents/carers on how we could make our annual community event better and feedback since the event has been excellent, with one parent saying, “I just wanted to say a massive ‘thank you’ to QEGS for hosting a fantastic Iftar! What a wonderful way to positively action community cohesion and understanding across all faiths and the diverse communities it serves. A fantastic way to demonstrate your inclusiveness and appreciation of all regardless of their cultural background!  Although I was unable to attend, my son came along and was wowed by your enthusiasm and hospitality. I will be sure to attend next year!”

This was a gathering when Muslims, Christians and those of other faiths joined together, for what was a lovely evening.

Thank you to everybody who came along and took part.
