The annual Art-Astic Art Exhibition held by Al Siraat on Friday 18 November truly captured the essence of community engagement. 

Hundreds of families attended the event, local community groups were invited and special appearances were made by key partners, including Cr May Lalios from City of Whittlesea Council and Ms Anne Smith from Independent Schools Victoria.

In celebration of the artistic achievements of the students, the opening ceremony was adorned with wonderful Qur’an recitation by Ustaz Ahmed Hachem and nasheeds by Grade 5 and 6 girls.
