The Theo Thijssen school in Amsterdam decided to replace the traditional Easter breakfast with the celebration during the Islamic Sugar Holiday, newspaper De Telegraaf reports.

According to the school “it wants to give more attention to traditions of other cultures”.

A letter from the school came into the hands of Dutch news outlets Geenstijl and Powned. The letter says that several day care volunteers will help during this year’s Islamic Sugar Holiday.

During the celebration of the Islamic holiday, the children in class will be told what the feast is and why it is being celebrated. “This way we hope to celebrate a different holiday with the children,” the letter says.
