In our upper school assembly today we learnt about the special journey (pilgrimage) many Muslims make to Hajj at this time of year and how they prepare for Eid celebrations. Even more helpful than the videos we watched were the two Lawford Mead pupils (brothers!) who were happy to come up the front and tell us about life in a Muslim family during this time. We heard about the ways some Muslims might challenge themselves to fast, sleep under the stars and avoid arguments. We discussed which of these challenges we would find harder and heard some advice from the brothers on how to stay positive and avoid arguments!
