2014 has been a very exciting year for the Science faculty. Our students entered the 2014 ASTA + NZASE Education Perfect Science Championships. Due to the extremely solid effort by our students, Al Noori Muslim School has achieved the following great results:

Fourth overall globally out of 787 schools.
* Third overall in Australia out of 572 schools.

* First in Australia for the 251-500 students category out of 173 schools.

A few days before Science Week, our school was invited to attend the launch of the Australian Museum Science Festival on the 15th of August. Our SRC members represented the school and enjoyed the launch.

On the 25 – 29th of September, our school took part in Science Week. On Monday, Shell Questacon Science Circus presenters visited the school and presented lively and energetic scientific shows. The shows covered a wide range of topics for Years 7, 8, 9 and 10 students. Students who participated in the programme at school received a free ticket to attend the Shell Questacon Science Circus hands-on exhibition.

Scientific video tapes were shown in the hall during recess and lunch on Tuesday to Thursday. On Wednesday, Doctor Ahmed Youssef, a medical practitioner, spoke to all the students about healthy eating and the importance of sun exposure for vitamin D.

Hands-on science activities, food stalls, competitions and amusement rides can mean only one thing - a Science Fair! On Friday, the school hosted a Science Fair. Students from Years 5 to 10 carried out experiments in the hall under the supervision of their teachers. Sister Ismat Hamaoui, a midwife, and her daughter Zeinab, a medical student, measured students' blood pressure, metabolic rate and calories.

The Science Fair included a range of stalls and activities including sweet stalls, a variety of food stalls, amusement rides, face painting, sack races, balloon races and basketball competitions. The school grounds were full of excitement and joy as hundreds of students enjoyed their day. Alhamdulillah, the fair was an outstanding success! Students and teachers had a great day.
