Ramadan Kareem - 2022
Dear Parents/Carers, Students and Families of Waverley Studio College,
I would like to send my best wishes to all of those in our Waverley Studio College family celebrating Ramadan in 2022.
Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar and is a period of prayer, self-control, charity and goodwill to others. For our Muslim and non-Muslim students, this is an excellent opportunity for them to think about self-discipline and consideration of other people. Part of Ramadan is fasting, which is one of the Five Pillars (fundamental religious duties) of Islam. Muslims believe fasting has many benefits, such as feeling closer to God, establishing a healthier life style, developing better habits, understanding of self and establishing better relationships with others.
Attendance during this period is as important as at any other time of the year. Children need to be in school to learn. With external examinations for Year 11 and 13 students only a few weeks away, we respectfully ask you to make sure that your son/daughter continues to come to College on time every day during Ramadan.
Thank you for your support, which is always greatly appreciated. May you and your family have a Ramadan filled with peace and serenity.
