These included the two principals and vice-principals as well as the leading teams of educators from the two schools.The encounter occurred in the beginning of Ramadan. The History and Islam Teacher Mr. Nader Taha explained the meaning of Ramadan, why do Muslims fast in it and the importance of charity and good deeds. Then the teachers broke the fast together as they heard the call of the Muezzin.
