Al Amanah SRC primary and secondary held a successful Eid fete on Wednesday 21 August 2019 to celebrate the glorious occasion of Eid Ul Adha and the achievement of Muslims who have completed the annual Hajj. The High School students were provided with an insightful religious lesson by the school Imam Shakyh Amr Alshelh about this glorious occasion and was followed by a beautiful chanting performance by the school chanting band. The school committee introduced food trucks which sold pizzas, gozlemes, potato-on-a-stick, milkshakes, ice cream and fairy floss.

Year Six Bike Safety Centre Visit

What a fantastic day!!! Year Six had a fabulous day learning about bike helmet and pedestrian safety at the Campbelltown Bike Safety Centre. The day was full of excitement as students rode their bikes around a designated track and had an opportunity to hold a license whilst they followed the road rules. Part of the program was to educated students about hazards and risks on the road and how rules can affect their everyday lives. Students also got an opportunity to ride during a 'Double Demerits' blitz as both teachers and parents ensured they were riding their bikes according to the rules. We would like to give a special thanks to Mr. Kanj for helping out on the day. Grade Six Teachers
