This event was hosted by MP Bronwyn Halfpenny and supported by Premier Daniel Andrews to highlight the contributions of young people in the Thomastown and surrounding region to art and culture.
Several Al Siraat student artworks were selected to be a part of this exhibition by our Art Department. Nur Naziihah Hafidi from Year 9 was interviewed on behalf of the College for her reflections on her artwork and culture.
Special acknowledgement goes to Ms Gulsen for coordinating our students’ participation in this exhibition and of course to all our wonderful students for producing such beautiful artworks: Your school community is very proud of you all. Special thanks also goes to Mr Suffian, our Head of Art & Technology, for his support and facilitating this project.
There are several exhibitions from other local schools and community organisations all lined along the walls of the grand Federation Room of Parliament House and we encourage our community to visit Parliament house in the coming weeks to experience this art exhibition.
The exhibition launch was also featured in an e-newsletter article published by the Australasian Muslim Times (AMUST) which covers 20,000 regular online readers. The printed version will be available at reception from 1 December.
