Eid Ul-Adha : 'Feast of the Sacrifice', also called the "Sacrifice Feast", is the second of two Muslim holidays celebrated worldwide each year, and considered the holier of the two. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son, as an act of obedience to God's command. Before Abraham sacrificed his son, God provided a male goat to sacrifice instead. In commemoration of this, an animal is sacrificed and divided into three parts: one third of the share is given to the poor and needy; another third is given to relatives, friends and neighbors; and the remaining third is retained by the family.

Our school celebrated Teacher's Day by a special assembly. The students delivered speeches in English and Hindi and read beautiful poems. The senior students honour the teachers by giving them gifts, roses and cards. They took the role of their favourite teachers and attended classes on their behalf.
