The Islamic School of Canberra put on a vibrant and exciting Open Day on Saturday 5 November.

The day was to celebrate the school’s survival after a tumultuous year and also to send the message to the community that its vision was to be fulfilled and its future was strong.

The day was organised by the School Board with the assistance of the Parents & Friends Association and was attended by Gai Brodtman, Federal Member for Canberra.

Since news of the resumption of funding broke there has been a spike of interest in the school with new enrolments flowing in.

“We are in a healthy position with enrolments and as they continue to come in we are in a better position to resource our school for 2017,” said the ISC Principal, David Johns.

The additional enrolments will ensure that there will be no combined classes. In fact most years will have multiple classes.

The school is planning to have its formal end of year assembly at the Canberra Islamic School on Wednesday 14 December followed by an event in Civic on Friday 16 December that Mr Johns said will be to thank the Canberra community for their support throughout the year.

“I feel it is important that we as a school continue to have a community presence and are open to sharing with others what a wonderful inclusive community we are,” he said.
