Principal's Welcome

Message from the Executive Principal

Welcome to Ilim College Website. Ilim College provides equal opportunity for all it’s students to achieve excellence in academic, cultural, spiritual, civic, leadership, sporting, and social endeavours, in an inclusive environment that supports learning, teaching and friendship. Over fourty different cultural groups are represented in the school population and we promote acceptance and respect as we value and celebrate our cultural diversity and Islamic identity.

Ilim College continued to shine in every aspect of its operations. The fine achievements and continued development of the school are a tribute to the professionalism of staff, the dedication and commitment of students and the wonderful support of parents and the community.

It gives us great pleasure in being part of building a positive school culture, where Islamic values are upheld, effort is awarded and success is celebrated.

We believe every day and every lesson counts and offers unique transition programs to assist entering PREP and year 7 students to adapt to their new school from the first moment they join our family. In the Early years our developing Reggio Emilio inspired developmental play curriculum is capturing the imagination and creativity of our children to plant the seeds for a love for learning to be cultivated throughout their schooling. In the middle years the expansion of electives and e-learning (enrichment for high ability) classes ensure increased opportunities for academic success and social growth. In the senior years the choice of VCE and VCAL programs allow students to choose a pathway suited to their needs and support their ambitions for future tertiary success.

The College has ESL and Special Needs Departments, which are staffed with professional selected personnel. With the support of a qualified Nurse, Psychologists and Speech Pathologists on school premises, we take a wholesome approach resulting in sound student-adult interaction, combined with additional guidance services such as Pastoral Care, Reading Recovery and Levelled Literacy Intervention Program, Homework Club and tutorials available lead to improved achievement and wellbeing.

A student at Ilim College will look forward to many highly rewarding educational and personal experiences. New academic vistas will be explored, new friendships will be made, and new perspectives on life will be developed. Ilim College provides the knowledge and skills required by students to confidently participate in the affairs of the Australian and world community.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Ilim College Family.

Ms Aynur Simsirel
