Tuesday the 21st  of May proved to be a delightful evening at Punchbowl Boys High School Iftar Dinner in partnership with Human appeal Australia.

The afternoon proved to be a spectacular event as all members from the community shared a meal by breaking fast in the holy month.

About 100 people attended the school’s Community Iftar, including the Jihad Did MP, Clr Bilal El- Hayek, Wayne John Pearce OAM an Australian former professional rugby league footballer and coach, a few school principals and many other members from the local community.

A couple of short talks were given by the Principal Mr Robert Patruno and a couple of keynote speakers, each describing what Ramadan is about from their own perspective. Mr Patruno stresses how this dinner helps lead to a better understanding of the many groups and faiths that we all experience each day.

Students and staff from Punchbowl Boys High School raised $3000 to go towards a charity program run by Human Appeal Australia and donated in a cheque presentation on the stage.

It truly resembled what the blessed month is all about.

Congratulations to all staff and students for a well organised event!
