Preparing for Afghan Day

In preparation for our Afghan Day (June 20th) we have begun a Language Group catering to parents who speak Dari and Pashto. Currently this group consists of mothers from our Afghan community. We are happy to give much of the decision making power for Afghan Day and the Language Group to our Year 5 & 6 children.  This opportunity is building up their leadership skills as well as valuing their contribution to our school community. This is giving the children a chance to express their opinion and the power and will to make decisions.

Our current enrolment details show that nearly a quarter of the children at our school come from Afghan backgrounds. The upcoming celebration will follow Ramadan (15th May – 14th June), a religious custom many of our school community will be observing. This celebration time is known as Eid and we hope to see all of our community joining the festivities on June 20th.
