Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents and Guardians, It is with a great sense of gratitude, pride and honour that we look back on 2014 Alhamdulillah. 2014 has been an amazing year of advances and developments with many first time achievements and awards, ranging from our first overseas student trip to Turkey, our first Hifz graduates, our first successful tutoring program and our first VCAL Horticulture and/Agriculture initiative. Furthermore our HUME City Council Outstanding Team Award for our Partnership with Penola and Mt Ridley, shortlisted best Secondary Teacher award for Ms Arzu  Olcucu, the purchase of new boys campus and Doveton campuses and the expansion of our Primary in-house swimming program to name just a few. These major achievements have been alongside the many great programs such as Kids Matter initiatives, extra intervention programs, camps and many more co curricula activities as well as improvements to our teaching and learning. I can only offer my heartfelt thanks to every staff member, teacher and students for these achievements. Many thanks to our parents and friends for their support, trust and confidence in us.

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Parents, I am very pleased to be back on board after my break last term. It has been wonderful timing for me with the Ramadan program in full swing at the beginning of the term and emphasis on Quran and Islamic practices at our school. I hope you are all still enjoying the rewards of the month and it has impacted on bettering ourselves inshallah and most importantly the acceptance of our prayers of the horror to end in Palestine once and for all inshallah.

Assalamu Alaikum, Term two progressed rapidly and much has happened at the College, as students and staff worked toward the completion of the semester. Students in Years 3, 5, 7 & 9 undertook the NAPLAN testing, which asseses the essential skills required for every child to progress through school and life, such as reading, writing, spelling, grammar and numeracy. It is important to remember that NAPLAN tests are not pass/fail tests. NAPLAN tests provide very valuable information, but there are no consequences for individual students for poor or good performance. At the classroom level it is one of a number of important tools used by teachers to measure student progress. Results will be mailed to parents in term 3. Download [18.51 mb]
