On 7th August 2016, BASS held a Hari Raya Celebration which was attended by almost 100 BASS members. The Guests of Honour for that event was Cg Pg Noor Shah, the Director of Studies of EAUC, Brunei Darussalam High Commission and spouse.
The event started with the recital of Al-Fatihah led by BASS Male RO, followed with all attendees singing the national anthem of "Allah Peliharakan Sultan". Welcoming remarks were then given by the BASS President and a speech by the Guest of Honour himself. The event was made even more livelier with performances from the students. The celebration ended with the prize giving ceremony of Best Male Dress and Best Female Dress. Potluck refreshments were then served to all.
This event also marked the first time the new BASS members attended a BASS-organised event here in Sydney. The new BASS members were also introduced to the seniors as well as the parents of BASS - Uncle Hj Saini, Aunt Zetty Hamid, Abg Eddy Hassan, Kaka Sabrina and Anna Saleha (daughter of Abg Eddy and Kaka Sabrina).
Deepest appreciation from BASS committee to everyone who attended the event and willing to provide food to be shared with everyone.
