First of all, I would like to thank the Al Siraat family for the warm welcome that I received since commencing my role as the Head of Secondary School. I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself: After teaching for 18 years in South Africa and some more years in Londan, I moved to Melbourne in 2004. I joined Al Siraat at the beginning of 2012, teaching VCE Psychology and English, with the aim of helping to build the College into a reputable institute of learning.
In the several years that I have spent at Al Siraat College, I have noticed that the school culture is built on positive relationships between staff, students and parents and on a culture of high expectations and achievement, enabling students to reach their full potential. My goal here is to provide my students, in my year levels, a challenging, tolerant and supportive environment, a trusted space where students can be themselves, love learning and aspire to academic excellence. I also strongly believe that education is the balance of academic success and moral values.
Therefore, I strive to provide a balanced education that encompasses ‘academic excellence’ on one hand, and ‘moral and ethical values’ on the other. As the Head of Senior School, my ultimate goal is to provide the best possible opportunities for our students proudly achieving their personal best.
My door is always open to my students and their parents. Let us work together to turn the most important transition time in students’ lives into a good and productive life experience. Your children are our children. Let us build their future together.
