Families got together to celebrate Eid on Friday afternoon.

Children at Braywick Court School marked the Muslim festival to recognise the end of the month-long fast of Ramadan.

Headteacher Gemma Donnelly said the school tries to celebrate a range of religious festivals.

“We had a lot of input and support from our families,” she said. “Some parents came in to do mehndi (henna designs) and brought in international food for everyone to share.

“It was brilliant, the families and children really enjoyed it.”

Before the event, pupils voted for a charity to donate money to.

By bringing in donations on the day £60 was raised for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, which has a rescue centre in Old Windsor.
