Hari Raya Celebrations | Friday 5th May 2023

The pupils have been working hard preparing performances for the upcoming Hari Raya Assembly. Many activities have been planned throughout the day for the pupils to learn and understand the culture of Malaysia. Pupils and staff are encouraged to wear either a Malay outfit or something green and gold on Friday 5th May to make the celebration more special that day.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone dressed up. Thank you and Selamat Hari Raya in advance.
