Five Indonesian delegates participating in the "Australia-Indonesia Muslim Exchange Program (AIMEP)" travelled to Al Siraat on Tuesday, 18 June 2019, to meet with our Junior School students and hear about their experiences as young Australian Muslims who attend "an Australian school in the Islamic tradition".
After speaking with students, AIMEP delegates were given a tour of the school grounds, including a visit to our beautiful Musallah prayer space, housed in a 160 year old farm building, classrooms, displays of children’s artwork, and technology spaces.
Their visit ended with a delicious lunch and in-depth discussion about Islamic education and the College ethos with founding Principals Ms Rahat and Mr Fazeel Arain, and the College leadership team.
What was the visit like for the AIMEP delegates? According to Ria Oktorina "My impression of this visit was incredible, (it was great to see) how a school can combine the Australian curriculum with Islamic education."
