Panasonic New Vision Award Winners 2008!

9th September 2008

Alhamdulillah! Al-Hidayah Islamic School is the WA Primary School Winner in the Panasonic Kids' Witness News, New Vision Awards for 2008.

Teacher Norani Ahmad and excited students Fatima Noor and Siti Nurul Aimiza Hj Zaini were flown to the Gold Coast in Queensland for the Awards night at Sea World last Thursday. They were presented with a Trophy, Certificate and $2000 worth of Panasonic products.

Fatima said the video aimed to correct the mis­conceptions of Muslim students. "Our video is titled A Day in the Life of a Muslim Student," she said. "We want to spread the message that we are just like any other students in Australia. "People think of us as different because of the clothes we wear and they think we have a secretive life. "I've been teased because of the clothes I wear. "But apart from the clothes, we are like any normal kids. "We enjoy sports, play games and love jumping around during break time. "The video showed us participating in sports, our classroom activities and what our school life is like."
