During the festive season of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, open houses and Raya feasts are a common tradition throughout the month of Syawal. Schools are no exception, where students and teachers gather to enjoy a variety of Raya dishes prepared through potluck or special orders from the school.
However, a recent WhatsApp conversation between parents and the headmaster of a school has gained attention on @mynewshub. They expressed dissatisfaction with the school's Raya feast.
According to the post, each student was asked to contribute RM5 to participate in the feast. However, the way the food was served in basins and pails drew criticism from the parents who felt it was not proper.
They pointed out that dishes like spaghetti and gravy were served in basins, which they deemed unsuitable.
The post received various responses from netizens who agreed with the parents, stating that serving food in basins was inadequate. However, some also argued that with the payment of RM5, parents should not expect more, reminding them that it was the budget they had.
Some individuals also mentioned that the issue may stem from internal factors such as the attitude of the headmaster. Nevertheless, it is important for all parties involved to resolve this issue amicably and ensure that similar incidents do not recur in the future. It is also disheartening to see food being served in basins and pails.
This situation serves as a reminder of the importance of communication and understanding between schools, parents, and students in successfully organizing events such as Raya feasts. Hopefully, this issue can be resolved effectively, and a more satisfactory outcome can be achieved in the future.
