Mr Bryant gave a wonderful presentation in assembly on the Festival of Eid with the help of S Albayati, Y Albayati, T Mahasneh and A Bakr. The children explained to the school in our virtual assembly all about Ramadan and Eid Mubarak. Also known as the Festival of Breaking the Fast, Eid is a religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide that marks the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan. The Islamic Holy month is said to be the month in which Prophet Muhammad got the first revelation of the Holy Quran. The celebrations of Eid consist of families and congregations coming together to pray and enjoy food together. S Albayati bought a beautiful crescent moon dish with delicious dates, the crescent moon represents the first sighting of a new moon which marks the start of Ramadan, dates being a popular cuisine during this celebration. A Bakr bought in her fathers prayer mat, a beautiful intricate pattern adorns the mat and she explained all about the importance of prayer during this time. Thank you to all of these children for sharing this wonderful presentation with us today!

About Danes Hill
Danes Hill School is widely recognised as one of the leading co-educational day preparatory schools in the country. Situated in 55 acres of landscaped ground in the village of Oxshott, Surrey, Danes Hill provides children aged 3 to 13 with a dynamic and exciting education.
At Danes Hill School we pride ourselves in being a non-selective school and our admissions process is designed to identify children who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education. An offer of a place will be made if we feel Danes Hill is the right school for your child.
The first three years of school – Nursery and Reception – are together called the Early Years. The Danes Hill Pre-Prep school aims to help all children to take their first learning steps in comfort, safety and confidence.
The Prep School is divided into the Junior School (Years 2 to 5), and Upper School (Years 6 to 8), each with its own Head, its own assemblies and traditions, and very much its own ethos. Children are encouraged to feel allegiance to their own particular section of the school, and this sectional subdivision ensures that the school never feels overwhelmingly big.
- School Life
A child’s school days should be filled with excitement and wonder, creating memories that they will treasure for years to come. Danes Hill School is the perfect platform for children to discover their passions, make lifelong friendships and believe in themselves.
