The Islamic College of Melbourne is extremely proud to announce our VCE 2021 Dux & High Achievers. Our Year 12 students attained impressively high results across the board with our College Dux, Ammar Qidwai achieving an impressive ATAR score of 97.50! With an incredibly bright future ahead for all of our class of 2021, we wish them all the very best in everything they aim to achieve in the future In sha’Allah.
To mark the end of the 2021 academic year for our Secondary students the College held it’s annual Secondary Awards Night where many of our Secondary students received awards, praise and acknowledgement for their tireless effort and invariably high results in their subject of choice for 2021. Alongside our internal academic awards and scholarships our Secondary students were also awarded the 2021 Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholar’s Award and the 2021 ADF Long Tan Leadership & Teamwork awards.
On Wednesday 24th November, our undefeated Junior Debating Team consisting of girls from 8C again performed spectacularly, defeating Bacchus Marsh Grammar Team 5. Debating the topic ‘that we prefer children playing team sports to individual sports’, our team argued for the negative, and this time it was Maariya Shaikh, Iraj Rizvi and Khadija Kamran who stepped up to the plate to represent ICOM with incredible results to retain their undefeated status.
As part of the college’s expansion to better facilitate our growing student base, our newly constructed Secondary Village and assembly area has undergone a transformation over the course of Term 3, bringing this new space to life with both colour and creativity. Large format signage has been installed to showcase our newly redesigned college house mascots along with complementary signage to give our Secondary Village a sense of identity.
This year, ICOM Secondary Students won two incredible awards in the category of debating and public speaking.
Ali Ali of Year 12 won the top A grade debater, and Nosayba Aljibaly won the top D grade debater for our region under the guidance of ICOM Debating Coordinator Mr Carrington. This is a great honour for our students and the college, and we are incredibly proud of their efforts.
Alongside the anticipated return to on-site attendance for all of our students, this week our Year 12s attended the College to sit the GAT test, a state-wide test that all VCE students who are enrolled in Unit 3 & 4 subjects are required to complete.
