Anti Bullying Week Soccer Match

12 August 2016

We are already 3 weeks down Term 3 and we have had many events in the past few weeks to instil values of respect and harmony in students to enhance friendship and to create a inclusive student culture.

With week 1, focusing on activities of ‘Anti Bully Week’ and week 2 consisting of activities of ‘Respectful relationship week’, students were given much education and encouragement to maintain respectful relationships within the school. This week, the Well-being Department organised an activity to reward those students who have made most of the past 2 weeks and had demonstrated respect, courtesy and regard in their friendships and relationships within the school:

Students from Years 3, 4 and Hifz were given the opportunity to represent their year level in a lunch time soccer match. The two teams versing each other were the Year 3's and 4's. Selection to the teams were tough with only a few students being picked from each class, and the only criteria for selection being values demonstrated within the classroom and outside. Therefore, a few respectful students from each class were chosen and rewarded to represent their year level team.

The lunch time soccer match was held on Friday, 5th August, in collaboration with the PE department. Students who were not representing their year level in the match were able to hold posters to cheer their team. The event saw many students turn up with all of them having much fun trying to score a goal for their team, or trying to cheer their team. We had Mr Adel and Mr Syed who also joined in support of their respective year levels! Although the match was won by the Year 4's with a 2-0 result, the fun and smiles in the faces of those who came in made it clear that everyone was a winner!

We thank Mr Bektash, Mr Saleh and Ms Layal from the PE Department for their support in making this event happen, and all our class teachers in the Year 3, 4 and Hifz classes for promoting the event within each classroom. We look forward to bringing more programs that encourage our students to make positive choices.
