In July, one of our students, Sabir, was nominated as Auskicker of the Week. This came as a wonderful surprise to not only Sabir and his family, but to all of us at the school. Sabir has been attending Auskick this year and was nominated by the Nth Melbourne Football Club.
As part of his nomination, NMFC and the NAB organised for Majak Daw to come to the school for a visit. This too came as a wonderful surprise and all the students were thrilled to meet him.
Congratulations to Sabir for his selection. You can watch him here:
He is real little champion.
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.
