Our primary school, like many in Sydney, has families from all over the world. Many of these families are Muslim, and this time of year is very important to them.
Every second year our school celebrates with a big community dinner under the lights. We all bring a plate to share, mains or dessert. This year I baked a coconut cake. I think it went down a treat as by the time I went to the dessert tables it had gone!
Respectfully we wait til sunset before we start our meal.
This is the third and final Community Dinner for our family, as part of the APS family.
Each time my heart fills. I will miss this feeling of local community.
The tables filled up as families arrived.
The food was placed on long tables under cover. There were picnic tables out on the top court. It was cold out, but the community spirit warmed our souls.
