Once again this year, Debney Meadows PS took part in the Eid Festival. As a school with diverse languages and cultures, we enjoy taking part in the community events and support our local families. Here are some great photos from the day.
Each year at the Eid Multicultural Festival, a sports match is played amongst our local youth and community members. This year North Melbourne and Essendon FCs were able to come together for the festival and put on a tight match with the North Melbourne team being the victors.
The game was watched by many of the locals and was played on Debneys Park oval, which is right next to our school. The trophy is named after our school which symbolises the positive connections we have with our local community. The trophy sits proudly in our reception area and will be awarded each year to the winning team. Thank you to the Eid Festival planning committee for making this part of our school.
Two of our students were chosen to be the water boys. You can see Jerry and Sabir in the photo below as we celebrate the win on the day.
Thank you to Sarah Bourke from The Huddle for this photo. Also thank you to Sainab and Yasseen from the Eid Festival committee for establishing the trophy.

It was a great community day. The sun was shining and there were plenty of people around. Thank you to all the DMPS crew who were able to come along on the day and help support our terrific school. Our school stand was welcoming and provided lots of iPad fun for the kids.
This Sunday, 2nd September, DMPS staff and students will be representing the school at the Eid Multicultural Festival. All people are welcome to join in the festival regardless of background or religion. The festival is taking place at Debneys Park near the Flemington Community Centre.
