2022 Growing is Knowing Incursion

On Friday, 4th of February, to coincide with ICOM’s Hijab Day, the Islamic College of Melbourne held an educational information session for all Year 5 students where mature-age topics relating to the hijab, faith and Islam are explained and discussed.

This extensive, one-off session provides our students with a greater understanding of what expectations lie ahead for them in life and why these expectations are so important. This information session is held for Year 5 students every year and is an integral part of their developmental studies.

After the session is complete, a morning tea is held where female students are gifted with a gift bag, formal hijab and a brand new ICOM hijab designed specifically for sporting activities and athletics, while the boys received a gift bag and traditional hat (taqiyah) to wear.
