On behalf of Australian International Islamic College, a very warm welcome to you all. I trust you will have an enjoyable evening insha Allah.
This is the 8th Graduation Ceremony of the AIIC. This is another important milestone in our history and for our Australian community. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all the students who are graduating today after a challenging, memorable and fruitful journey that took more than 12 years of your lives.
Throughout the year we have different events, functions, ceremonies and celebrations at AIIC. We organise various year round events, functions, ceremonies and celebrations. However nothing is more exciting than the year 12 graduation ceremony. It is the pinnacle of all celebrations. This is the occasion f or graduating students to celebrate their success and reap there awards of their hard work and efforts over the years.
This is a time for parents to feel proud and relieved seeing their children reach an important station in their life. None of this would have been possible but for the grace of Allah the Almighty and the equal opportunities that this beloved country of ours Australia offers us.
My dear students, you are approaching a very important juncture in your life. You are now ready for a different world of education. You are now ready for university, a place where you have to commit yourself and do more of your own research. In university life, education is very different, because education is not brought to you, you have to seek it.
You must pursue degrees that are marketable and are in demand. You must develop a passion for knowledge, you must know everything that will give you and your family a better life. At the same time be good and exemplary students of this great nation of ours, Australia.
