Ramadan - What is it?

Today we talked about the different cultures at Oaklands and also the different festivals. Nobody mentioned Ramadan, which was interesting. That was fine as it meant we had something to learn that nobody knew about.

Here is what we found out and identified as interesting pieces of information.
