As part of ICOM’s annual Ramadan fundraising efforts, this year through Human Appeal Australia our Primary departments have raised enough funds to build five water wells for the disadvantaged. Two wells in Pakistan, two in Bangladesh and one in Afghanistan. We would like to thank all of our Primary students and their families for making donations and helping us in achieving this amazing act of charity and generosity. May Allah (SWT) accept your act of charity and reward you all.
From everyone at Islamic College of Melbourne, we wish you Eid Mubarak! The blessed day of Eid is a day of celebration, joy and showing gratitude for all that Allah SWT has given us in our lives. May Allah SWT bless you and your family with strength & good faith, grant all of your prayers and fulfil all of your desires. May he accept your fasting and worship efforts this Ramadan.
Throughout the holy month of Ramadan the artistic talents of our students are always on full display. Led by our Secondary Visual Art & Design Teacher, Ms Mihaela Ranga, the Recess Ramadan Art Club has given our Secondary students a new outlet to express themselves during this time of heightened devotion and worship. The purpose of this activity is to celebrate and honour the holy month of Ramadan through the expression of art, allowing students to be fuelled by their creativity while fasting.
On Tuesday the 20th of April our Primary students were welcomed back to school by Ramadan Man to mark their first day of Ramadan with us for 2021. Ramadan Man visited all of our Primary classrooms throughout the morning, delivering a very special gift for all students which they could take home and enjoy after breaking their daily fast. Our students were overjoyed to have Ramadan Man with them in their classrooms, they were extremely grateful to have received such a sweet reward.
As both Primary & Secondary students started Term 2 today, we would like to wish all parents, staff and students Ramadan Mubarak, we hope you all have a blessed and happy Ramadan this year! To commence our Ramadan events this morning our Primary staff & students held a Ramadan Assembly where students made Quran recitations, performed and spoke about the meaning of Ramadan all while motivating each other through the challenges of this holy month.
