A great demonstration of our multi-faith & multicultural Australia at Belmore Boys High School Iftar Dinner.
On Friday the 17th of May the Belmore Boys High School held their annual Iftar Dinner to encourage the power of solidarity and tolerance amongst all people. The event, held on school grounds, invited out members not only of the Muslim community, but also those of different faiths and backgrounds.
The Iftar started by Athan as signal for breaking of the fast, followed by Maghreb (sunset) Prayer.
Numerous figures attended the event such as Tony Burke MP, Mr Jihad Dib MP, City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour, Clr Bilal El- Hayek, Clr Nadia Saleh, Hala Ramadan, Principal of Belmore Boys High School, , several school principals and many other members from the local community.
It was amazing to see so many students, teachers, staff and supportive parents from all backgrounds together in the spirit of sharing and community.
