Ramadan is a special month for the Muslim community, and as a school, we would like to acknowledge the beliefs of many of our students. A dinner was held for the school community, with an invitation extended to our whole school, including staff, families and our major sponsor –Human Appeal International.
The purpose was to promote the cultural diversity within our school and to share with our community the experience of Muslim fasting and breaking the fasting.
Adam was a “former” Year 12 student leaving school early 2016 to pursue a trade.
Adam was an avid lover of sports and during his young life he had played in a range of sports. He was naturally athletic and he excelled in the areas he was devoted to. Adam was rarely seen without a football in his hands. His greatest love and commitment was Touch Football. As an aspiring elite junior player Adam was recently chosen in the New South Wales 18 years squad. He had been a member of Western Suburbs Touch and he could be seen braving the cold nights of the winter season running around with his beloved Wests. Adam’s love for the game extended to his assistance with the Scotland team in last year’s World Cup.
Adam’s other love was the Parramatta rugby league team. He was forever spruiking about how they will rise again and win a comp.
And yes there was his Homebush Boys High School rugby. Every Wednesday for First Grade Adam would be marshalling the troops and urging on his team by leading from the front or sending those 20 metre plus bullet like passes to support.
