Image of Celebrating Community: A Glorious Evening of the Grand Iftar


Wednesday 27th March marked a truly remarkable event at CHS South, as the school community came together in a spirit of joy, love, and unity to celebrate the first Grand Iftar. The occasion, which commemorates the holy month of Ramadan, served as a poignant reminder of the importance of inclusivity and togetherness within our diverse school community.




The atmosphere was brimming with warmth and solidarity as over 300 families gathered to share in the festivities, generously contributing a delightful array of homemade dishes. From traditional delicacies to modern interpretations, each dish reflected the cultures and traditions within our school community.




However, it wasn't just the culinary delights that made the evening special. The event was punctuated by heartfelt speeches, prayers, and readings from our students, showcasing their talent, resilience, and the depth of their spiritual convictions. It was truly inspiring to witness our students stepping into the spotlight with confidence and grace, embodying the values of compassion, empathy, and understanding that lie at the heart of Ramadan.


Moreover, the Grand Iftar served as a powerful testament to the strength of unity and solidarity within our school community. Staff, students, and families of diverse backgrounds and faiths came together to break their fast, fostering a sense of belonging and mutual respect that transcends cultural and religious boundaries. The electric atmosphere resonated with laughter, conversation, and shared experiences, forging bonds that will endure long after the night has passed.




As the evening drew to a close, there was a deep sense of gratitude and hope for the future. The success of the event would not have been possible without the unwavering support and participation of all those who attended. Whether through their contributions, their presence, or their words of encouragement, each individual played a vital role in making the Grand Iftar a resounding success.


“From the inception of CHS South we envisioned a school that embraced the wonderful diversity of our community and celebrated the different faiths and beliefs embodied within it. To see this vision realised through this wonderful evening is a full circle moment we can all be rightly proud of.” Mr. D. Prophet, Headteacher


Looking ahead, we eagerly anticipate the prospect of future Grand Iftar celebrations, each one building upon the foundation of unity and inclusivity. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all those who attended and supported the Grand Iftar, helping to make it an unforgettable and meaningful occasion. Together, we have demonstrated the power of community spirit and the beauty of diversity, reaffirming our commitment to building a more inclusive and compassionate world. Here's to many more memorable celebrations in the years to come.
