Cookies are synonymous with Eid al-Fitr so students were invited to make their own cookies. Cookies were made the day before the celebration. Due to the large number of students interested in making cookies, the students were asked to register 2 days before the activity. After registering, they then voted to determine what cookies they would make. A total of 24 participants made cookies in the school kitchen after school hours. All the students looked very enthusiastic. On the day of celebration, students were given cookies and milk for snacks, and for their activities, they were asked to make “THR” envelopes which were filled with money tosymbolisethe THR which is usually distributed during Hari Raya.
