Hari Raya 2018

Selamat Hari Raya!

The school celebrated Hari Raya Puasa together with our Muslim colleagues and students on 15 June 2018. In commemoration of this festive event, the Outram Secondary School Malay Community organised a Hari Raya concert on 11 July to share the happy occasion with the rest of the school.

This year, the Hari Raya concert focused on values which the Muslim community try to cultivate during their month of fasting – those of tolerance, perseverance and patience. They also shared the rationale behind why Muslims fast during the month of Ramadan. The whole school was entertained heartily with a ‘Noose’-styled programme, complete with newscasters, reporters and live interview segments.

The Kompang group, who had been practising for 2 months prior to the concert, led our school’s senior management into the hall to kickstart the concert. There was also a short Silat performance by students who had picked up the art during the Mother Tongue Fortnight. The ultimate highlight of the day was the enthralling dance performance by the Malay girls, as well as a special Hari Raya MTV fronted by our very own Malay teachers.
