Nicholas's School Update #15

Its a short week for the centre with only 3 days of lessons due to Hari Raya celebration. But that didn't stop the children to have fun. They played a lot of fun games and took home plenty of goodies.

This week topic was - "Hari Raya" , also known as Eid Mubarak. Eid is a celebration that marks the end of Ramadan/fasting month.

Vocabulary for this week are:

Mosque - a Muslim place of worship

Tudung - the conservative head scarf that Muslim women wear to cover their hair, neck and chest

Songkok - a traditional head gear that Muslim men/boys wear during prayers or as an accessory to complete an ethnic outfit

Baju kurung - a two piece outfit that includes a sarong and loose fitting long sleeved tunic for women and long pants and a loose fitting long sleeved top for men

Salam - a handshake that symbolizes a form of respect for elders (the hand is held then raised up to the younger persons' nose/forehead) Back home, I got Nicholas to show me and he did it so well and so cute!

Their cookery lesson this week was to bake yellow and green sugar cookies which taste fantastic! He brought some home and was snapped out by the girls in no time!
