On Friday 15th June 2018, some of our 10LIFEYA students performed at the opening of Refugee Council of Australia’s Refugee Week 2018 launch. The event that was held at Customs House in Circular Quay was a platform in which many inspiring stories of hope were shared with guests from a range of industries.
Together with Evan Yako from Healing Through Evan Yako’s Drumming, our students, Ibrar, Iqrar, Sina, Amir F., Amir R., and Hamzeh were ‘back by popular demand’ and received overwhelming applause and attention for their performance. We congratulate these students for not only their excellent performance but also the way in which they represented Arthur Phillip High School.
Inter-school Gala Day
Select students from across all stage groups were invited to participate in the Inter-school Gala Day at Valentine’s Park organised by Football United on Monday 18th June 2018. One of many ‘Refugee Week’ celebrations, the event saw various schools from across Sydney go head to head in a game of soccer. While all our teams played exceptionally well, our junior boys just missed out on winning the final but our girls’ team made up for the boys’ loss with a major win against five other schools. Despite not winning, our three boys’ teams played fair and represented the school with pride.
Congratulations to everyone who participated.
Till next time...
