After a break in 2020, Cabramatta High School returned to host an Iftar night for staff, students and their families to celebrate the Islamic month of Ramadan and the breaking of the fast.

Nearly 90 people including students of Muslim faith and of different faiths, families of the school community, special guests, alumni and staff attended the event on Thursday night.

A range of teachers donated their time and effort to assist with catering, which included; rice, soup, salads and curries. Some of the items were outsourced from Liverpool including chicken and dessert.

Dates, a traditional food to break the fast with, were served first.

The event also featured students speaking about their experience of observing Ramadan.

The event, which was first held in 2017, was cancelled last year due to COVID restriction. However, together with 'The Culinary School', they were able to organise the deliveries of a warm meal to 42 members of the community.
