Term 2 Sports 2022

And the winner is…

Last term we set a skipping challenge for our primary school children, who have been training themselves to achieve the most skips without stopping. MashaAllah over 150 students took part and the student with the highest number of skips went to Zoha Idrees in Year 5! With a massive 334 skips without stopping, Zoha is our AIC Thornlie Campus skipping champion for 2022. Next challenge coming soon so stay posted!

Meet the Sports Captains

Each year, the new year 6 students nominate themselves to be sports captain for their colour faction. The captain’s role is a very important position, and a lot of thought and consideration goes into selecting the 8 students to represent their teams. Their duties include motivating and encouraging their team, always showing positive sportsmanship, creating the chants for their faction, leading the chants at the carnival and fundraising.

The selection was very difficult this year but with the help of the year 6 teachers, we collectively chose whom we believe deserve to lead their teams.

Many congratulations to Sami Fauzi and Salma Sabri for the RED faction, Samara Hourani and Tehreem Marwat for the YELLOW faction, Noor Kayda and Safiullah Sherwani for the BLUE faction, Ilyas Azman and Abdullah Taha for the GREEN team. I am sure you will all do a GREAT job!

Swimming

Our wonderful Pre-primary children completed their swimming program and had so much fun learning and improving their water safety skills. Over the 8 days, the children learnt so many valuable skills including how to get themselves organised and ready for their lessons. MashaAllah they all did so well and received their certificates for their achievements.
