Teaching Level: Combined
Al Zahra College is an IB World School (PYP, MYP, and DP) supporting students from Kindergarten to Grade 12. The college was established in February 1998, in order to provide alternative educational options for the growing Muslim community in Australia.
The college aims to achieve quality learning in all areas of the curriculum, as well as within the Islamic faith, with particular attention to instilling high moral values in each student. The College motto, ‘Faith, Knowledge, Wisdom’, promotes excellence and quality in all learning areas.
The inclusion of our ethos and values in the school teaching program seeks to give all students an opportunity to cooperate and work together in a harmonious environment, and to understand and appreciate the common ideals of internationalism in a spirit of tolerance and understanding.
Al Zahra College seeks to provide an educational environment in which each student may develop an understanding and respect for his or her own cultural background and take pride in whom they are. Consequently, the ability for the child to respect other cultures is strengthened.
Al Zahra College aspires to add positively to the cultural diversity of multicultural Australia and prepare students for effective participation, as Australian citizens, in the wider global community.
