Year 12 Excursion – A Day to Reflect

Thursday 13 September 2018 Year 12 Excursion - A Day to Reflect “It was a heart touching, emotional and educational experience”. With these words, the year 12 students expressed how happy and excited they were to have participated in this year’s excursion planned to complement the work being done in class on the Arabic, HSIE and Religion units. The day started with a visit to the Muslim Cemetery in Rookwood, where they had the chance to see firsthand how the Burial of Muslims is carried out in the old and the new section of the Muslim cemetery. Students had also the chance to visit the graves of their loved ones who had passed away and to recite verses of the Qur’an and also make supplication for them. After this sentimental visit, the year 12 students’ second stop was at Darulfatwa, the Islamic High Council of Australia where they were welcomed by his eminence Sheikh Ibrahim Al Shafie. Students enjoyed listening to an informative lecture in which Sheikh Ibrahim discussed issues that are of importance to the youth. Following the lecture, students were each presented with a gift pack. Commenting on the visit to Darulfatwa, one of the year 12 students said: “The lesson inspired us to stay connected to Darulfatwa even after we graduate to remain within the circles of religion”. To complement the work being done in class on the Arabic unit “Media”, students’ next visit was to the Muslim Community Radio, 2MFM where they were greeted by the 2MFM crew.
