Harmony Day at Torrensville Child and Family Centre

Last week, staff, children and their families celebrated Harmony Day by acknowledging the diverse backgrounds present at the centre. Interestingly, TCFC is one of the most diverse preschools with over 80% of children at the centre come from a multicultural background, so for them, Harmony Day was certainly full of colour, with children dressed in something that reflects their background.

Eid Al Adha Mubarak!

Eid Al Adha is one of the holiest celebrations on the Islamic calendar. The holiday known as the Feast of Sacrifice represents the end of Hajj, an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca in Saudi Arabia that lasts three to four days. The Koran recommends all Muslims make the journey at least once in their lifetime.
Muslims celebrate this day as a reminder of the time in which Ibrahim was about to sacrifice his son but was told by God to sacrifice an animal instead. The celebration symbolizes Ibrahim's devotion to Allah.

Up to 2 million Muslims from around the world arrived in Saudi Arabia for the start of Hajj this week. The start of Eid Al Adha is determined based on the lunar cycle, which means the festival falls on a different date every year. This year it fell on the 11th September.

Muslims start out the day with a morning prayer and then exchange gifts and food among family and friends. They are required to share their food and money with the poor so they can also take part in the celebrations. Worshippers typically slaughter an animal like a goat or sheep.

Eid Al Adha Mubarak to all our Muslim clients and staff!
