Al-Faisal College - Liverpool Master Plan
Book Character Parade
LIV KINDY Graduation
At the beginning of this year Al-Faisal College commenced a master planning process for our Liverpool school to help meet the needs of the growing community.
We are pleased to announce that after many months of work, technical investigations and stakeholder engagement we have finalised our master plan and submitted the State Significant Development Application and supporting Environmental Impact Statement to the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment for assessment.
The master plan includes a renewed primary school on the existing school site, and a new secondary school across the road at 80 Gurner Avenue.

Students from Kindy to Year 8 and Staff attended our Book Character Parade celebrating Book Week. Each grade dressed based on a theme relative to the topics they were learning in class. It was wonderful to see the vibrant array of colours and costume choices. Our choir group prepared some songs which they performed during the parade and parents and little siblings were invited to parade their costumes as well. Students ended the parade with the older students reading stories to the younger ones.
Kindergarten Graduation Day marks the conclusion of the first year of schooling for our Kindergarten students before they progress onto Stage 1, Year 1.

Bushfire Relief Appeal
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
Australia wide, the hearts and souls of every citizen was captured by the devastating bushfires that ripped through towns and caused mass destruction to homes, farmland, protected species and entire communities. The students, teachers and parents of Al-Faisal College - Liverpool wanted to help in their own capacity and held a Bake Sale.
The Year Nine Food Technology class, created an enticing menu of delectable desserts to sell to the students and teachers. All proceeds went to toward the Bushfire Relief Fund.
Every year in May, students get together to raise funds that will make a big difference to those affected by cancer. It is the Cancer Council’s most popular fundraiser, and it is definitely one of our favourite events at Al-Faisal College - Liverpool. We enjoy Krispy Kreme donuts while catching up with friends and teachers. Hosting a morning tea is a fun and rewarding way to support the event and to help save lives. We hope to continue supporting this event every year.
NAIDOC celebrations are held around Australia each July to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Each year the theme changes as these themes are chosen to reflect important issues and events for NAIDOC. Throughout the week we have welcomed members from the community to share their stories with us.
Students in Year 4 met essential workers from the community, the local firefighters, who came to Al-Faisal College - Liverpool. Our firefighters have worked tirelessly over the years and expressed ways in which they help the community daily. The incursion was interactive, enjoyable and educational for the students. Each student was able to use the equipment they brought with them on their fire brigade and everyone had a wonderful time learning about these important workers in our community.
