Al Zahra College is an IB World School that commenced in February 1998 to provide alternative education options for the growing Muslim community in Australia. The College presently caters for students from Preschool to Year 8 (with an additional secondary year group planned each year). The Preschool and Primary sections are co-educational, while the secondary class is for girls.
The College motto Faith, Knowledge and Wisdom promotes, in all students’ endeavours, excellence and 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.
Al Zahra College is authorised to offer PYP (Primary Years Programme) and it is a Candidate MYP (Middle Years Programme) School, as well as an Interested Diploma Programme (DP) School.
The inclusion of our ethos and values in the college’s teaching programs provides all students with an opportunity to cooperate and work together in a harmonious and collaborative environment, and to understand and appreciate the common ideals of the Islamic faith in a spirit of tolerance and understanding.
Al Zahra College provides a learning environment in which each student is able to develop an understanding and respect for his or her own cultural background and take pride in who he or she is. Consequently, the ability for students to respect other cultures is strengthened. Islam, by its very essence, is multicultural and Al Zahra College seeks to imbue all students with high moral values and respect for all people.
