In the first year, enrolments were 49 students spread amongst 3 classes, from Kindergarten to Year Two. Our enrolments have grown remarkably. In 2016 we have over 2000 students enrolled from K-12. Our ninth cohort of Year 12 students will present for the Higher School Certificate in 2016.
The College motto briefly summarises the particular aims of the College, to help our students to become successful Australian citizens through their faith and knowledge. Al-Faisal College is based on providing education to students to become effective members of the Australian society, imbued with Australian and Islamic values which foster their spiritual, moral, social, physical and intellectual development.
