On the 3rd of May 2016 ICB entered students to compete at the District Cross Country, where students were required to complete a 3km running track. Whilst our students didn't receive any placing's, they represented the College with pride, determination and a "never give up" attitude. They should be very proud of themselves.

An in-school PD on understanding and managing autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has been conducted for the Primary Staff on 20th April. Lynda Melville and Cathy Drumond from Autism Queensland facilitated the workshop. I hope the information from this PD will assist our teachers to work better with children on the autistic spectrum.
On Friday 22nd April the ICB community came together to recognise Australia’s national day of remembrance, ANZAC Day.
This year our commemoration extended to include other nations involved during the campaign at Gallipoli. Cap-tain Michael Mist represented the New Zealand armed forces and Year 12 student, Ayse-Nur Dogan, read At-taturk’s famous speech on behalf of the Turkish commu-nity. Whilst there were plenty to represent Australia, this was done officially by David Forde, Past President of Sunnybank RSL.
“In May 2015 my department initiated a formal review into six school authorities affiliated with the Australian Federation of Islamic Councils (AFIC) following ongoing concerns about their independence, financial management and governance arrangements.
“As a result of this review, on 13 November 2015, my department issued a Notice of proposed decision to each of the six school authorities as required under Commonwealth legislation. These notices detailed the department’s concerns about their independence, financial management and governance arrangements and invited each authority to ‘show cause’ why its approval to receive Federal Government funding should not be revoked.

On 8 January flashing light school zone signs were installed on 45 Acacia Road.
Islamic College of Brisbane was nominated to receive these new signs as part of a Queensland Government commitment to improve school road safety.
You will notice that the new signs look similar to standard school zone signs with the addition of a red flashing ring around the speed limit as well as two flashing yellow lights at the top of the sign.
