Welcome from the Principal

Updated May 2024

We are an Australian School in the Islamic Tradition.

This identity statement clearly encapsulates who we are. We provide high quality independent schooling following the Australian Curriculum which gives each child access to pathways equal to that of any Australian School. In doing this, we also infuse the Islamic Tradition through the curriculum and ensure that our environment and ethos clearly reflects Islamic values and heritage.

Al Siraat College has made tremendous progress since opening our doors in February 2009. From a quiet farm site with majestic river red gum trees, to a growing community of staff and students working in partnership with the parents and supporters of the College.

Our dedicated staff prepare the citizens of tomorrow, who will be of benefit not only to themselves, but also to others; locally, nationally, and globally.

Our co-educational setting between Foundation to Year 4 helps socially prepare children for learning to understand each other and the world around them. From Years 5 to senior secondary, our parallel learning classes help our young men and women comfortably flourish in their separate learning environments. Depending on the subjects studied, students may be in co-educational classes in the VCE years.

We invite you to explore the website further and to meet with us to tell you more about our exciting journey and future plans.

All thanks and praise is for Allah (swt) who has made possible the establishment of our Islamic College and the opportunities of building on our dream for a better tomorrow.

Remember, you are all like gold and silver mines. The treasure is only surfaced through a great effort, perseverance and true belief. So start digging …
