Celebrating World Hijab Day At Buttercup Primary

Thank you to all the students who made that extra effort to celebrate World Hijab Day with us by wearing their beautiful hijabs so proudly.  World Hijab Day is an annual event founded by Nazma Khan in 2013. The event takes place on February 1st each year in 140 countries worldwide. Its stated purpose is to encourage women of all religions and backgrounds to wear and experience the hijab to promote understanding, respect and tolerance. The girls and teachers enjoyed experimenting with different hijab styles and colours on the day and posed away for the camera!
