Fete time is time to have fun at school and what a day! On Saturday 29 July AIIC held its annual College fete where there was something for everyone. The fete started with a short formal program, a recitation from the Qu’ran by Abdul Khaliq. The College’s Nasheed group in their smart outfits sang the national anthem followed by addresses from Mrs Banwa (College Principal), Mr Mohamed Ali (Chief Administration Officer), Sgt Jim Bellos (School Police Liaison Officer), and Daud Abdullah (President of AIIC P&C). Imam Ahmed Azhari closed the program with a vote of thanks and Dua.
The beautiful winter sunshine kept everyone warm throughout the day and the food stalls quenched our thirst and fed our hunger. It was wonderful to see the support from our school community – the parents, family, friends, neighbours and old students who came along. With plenty of vendors and school stalls (thank you teachers), the fete is a good time to shop for clothes and books, and to try your skill at table tennis, mask making, ceramic decorating and volleyball. This year the bubble football was a big hit – did you have a go?
Each year we try to offer something different, who knows what it will be next year? You’ll have to come along to Fete 2018 to find out.
The end to such a successful day went with a big bang – with a firework display. We will be back next year and thank all our sponsors and the community for their continued support.
We are a school that is growing and going places, come along and join us at our next function.
