As I understand it, sport is hard work for which you do not get paid.

The celebration of the Islamic New Year is in commemoration of the occasion of our Prophet Mohammed’s (Peace and Blessing of Allah be Upon Him) migration “Hijrah” which took place on the first of Muharram in the year 1439.
The Prophet (PBUH) emigrated from Mecca to Madina to seek protection against the harm of Quraish.
To celebrate this wondrous event, the Islamic Department organized an assembly program to educate and memorialize the “Hijra”. This student led assembly allowed students to answer questions regarding the “Hijra story” with prizes for those who had the correct answer. All students from the youngest in Grade 1 to the oldest in high school enjoyed this event.
