"A moment of silence to remember those who gave their tomorrow, so we could have our today."
“The year 2020 you say? That’s the year that went down in history and I had to adapt to new rules and conditions. That’s the year I had to consider everything and everyone around me. That’s the year I had to have immense courage. That’s the year I lived through a pandemic! That’s my year 2020!” said the brave Al Falaah Learner.
The year 2020 and the COVID-19 Pandemic came with many challenges, from the socio-economic, financial & cultural standing of our country, to restrictions and challenges we faced as a school. However, one would say that these were extraordinary times as well. We have experienced realisations about not just the state of our country and its healthcare and financial preparedness, but also our own personal financial pressures and most importantly the extreme necessity for health and fitness in our lives.
At Al Falaah College we believe that “Impossible is Nothing.” Our learners are taught that being a good Muslim, a good student AND a good athlete is POSSIBLE! Alhamdulillah this year, despite its challenges, still proved to be successful in this regard. A little boy and girl learned to kick a ball, a teenager used his/her skills to win a match, and many AFC learners bravely sacrificed their sporting time to complete their academic year, never to be forgotten as the sporting souls of their proud school. Alhamdulillah, our Al Falaah sporting stars have made us proud again...
Every learner at Al Falaah College participates in Physical Education. These are curriculum lessons incorporated within the weekly timetable. Lessons are done in a mass participation form for each grade which encourages a more active and competitive participation due to the longer duration and number of learners & coaches.
The sports curriculum includes a variety of different sports incorporating core skills development, sport specific drills, game play as well as overall fitness. This year, at AFC, we highlighted the same concepts under strict COVID-19 social distancing rules and regulations. The Sports Department took all necessary precautions to protect our learners but still allowed for development and free-play.
