History of Al Siraat – Celebrating 10 Years of Learning

Updated July 2020

Al Siraat College was the aspiration of Mr Fazeel Arain, College Director and Mrs Rahat Arain, Principal of Islamic Tradition. Fuelled with a passion for holistically educating not only their own children but also other Muslims growing up in the Australian context, led them on a journey to commence Al Siraat College.

The rural property on Harvest Home Road Epping was purchased towards the end of 2007. The property has many heritage icons including the original homestead and bluestone barn of the Lochaber Estate, now over 160 years old.

Al Siraat College commenced in 2009 with 75 students from Foundation to Year 4 in a custom built portable building. Now celebrating ten years of learning, the College has grown to just short of 1,000 students from Foundation to Year 12 in 2020. The College has the capacity to continue to grow to 1,200 students in the future, inShaAllah.

From a dream for quality independent Islamic Schooling to the reality of Al Siraat College, Mr and Mrs Arain are delighted with how the College is being embraced and nurtured by the extended community.

The future will be exciting! Come and join us on our journey.
