CREATIVELY BRINGING THE COMMUNITY TOGETHER
The annual Art-Astic Art Exhibition held by the College this week truly captured the essence of community engagement. Hundreds of families attended the event, local community groups were invited and special appearances were made by key partners, including Cr. May Lalios from City of Whittlesea Council and Ms. Anne Smith from Independent Schools Victoria.
In celebration of the artistic achievements of the students, the opening ceremony was adorned with wonderful Qur'an recitation by Ustaz Ahmed Hachem and nasheeds by Year 5 and 6 girls. Awards were given out for best performing student from each class.
Inside, vast display walls, lined with framed vibrant artworks left viewers in awe of the refined artistic talent present within the school. One student Hajar Chamra from year 9A proudly displayed her artwork with her parents by her side. Families were engaged in the various creative stalls and stations, immersed in henna art, calligraphy and the Recycled Goods Hub promoting environmentally sustainable creative practices.
Al Siraat would like to thank our wonderful school and local community, our strategic partners, businesses, the City of Whittlesea Council and Independent Schools Victoria for their ongoing support, contributions and participation in making this event a huge success.
2017 is destined to be an exciting year for the College. With the anticipated completion of the TEAMS Building (Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics & Science), we will be able to offer even greater choices to our students to further enhance their learning experience. We pray for their ongoing success.
