Welcome to the Islamic School of Canberra!
The Islamic School of Canberra is situated on 15 acres in the suburb of Weston in
Canberra's Inner South. It began in 2006 before moving to a larger facility to
accommodate increasing enrolments. The motto for our school is 'In Knowledge Lies
Strength' and this is embedded in all we do at our school.
We are an Islamic school that proudly educates our students in the national curriculum
within the context of sound Muslim values and beliefs. The strong faith dimension of
the Islamic School of Canberra provides a deeper sense of meaning, purpose and
strength for its students and staff as it promotes a respect and love for all.
The Islamic School of Canberra prides itself on strong academic rigor, a supportive
pastoral care program and teachers who are innovative and motivating. Our students
come from diverse cultural backgrounds and this enriches our learning environment.
Our grounds are safe, stimulating and energising. Students are surrounded by a natural
space creating a special connection between knowledge, it’s importance, and the value
of student contribution to our community and our society.
The Islamic School of Canberra is unique. Our facilities engage our students into
discovering more about nature and the scientific world. Our staff empower students to
ask questions that develop deep learning and communication is regularly made with
family to ensure that learning outcomes are identified, supported and achieved.
I hope that the Islamic School of Canberra provides wonderful experiences for the
students and families who attend.
May this part of their learning journey be a special one- 'InshaAllah!.....'
