Durack College Fete

Durack College Fete

The sun shone and stall holders set up early for the expected crowds, for Sunday 28 August marked the annual AIIC fete.  It was great to welcome family, friends and neighbours to our college.  Throughout the day people arrived and enjoyed the formal welcome program, shopping, rides, games and food on offer.

The College’s Nasheed group commenced the program with the national anthem followed by addresses from Councillor Steve Griffiths and Sgt Jim Bellos.  Also saying a few words was the founder of the college Imam Abdul Qudoos Azhari and College Principal Mariam Banwa.

The Student Council from both Primary and High School organised a games stall while teachers had their own stalls.  There was something for everyone and when the fun of the fete and the heat of the day became too much, people supported food vendors and sat in the shade of the large marquee.   The end of a successful day went off with a big bang namely the firework display.

The support from the community was immense, the day was exhausting but very enjoyable and rewarding.  We will be back next year and we would to thank all our sponsors and the community for their continued support.
