About Al-Faisal College - Liverpool
Alhamduillah, all praise belongs to Allah (SWT), The Most High, The Most Benevolent and The most Merciful. We thank Him for His mercy, blessings and guidance. Al-Faisal College – Liverpool was established in 2015 from humble beginnings and is growing rapidly, both in terms
of infrastructure and student population. Al-Faisal College – Liverpool is currently a K-11 school with our first cohort of Year 11. Inshah Allah we look forward to our first cohort of HSC students successfully graduating and moving into their chosen career paths. Stages 4 and 5 are now
complete with 21 st century facilities that include Science laboratories, a Food and Technology laboratory, computer labs and specialty rooms. The school has begun construction on a multipurpose hall that can hold up to 2000 people with an underground carpark.
The core values of faith, knowledge and success form the basis of our beliefs, practices and teaching. We are a Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports (PBIS) School, explicitly teaching students the values of Respect, Ownership, Achievement, Resilience and Safety
(ROARS) in various environments within the school. We believe in developing well rounded citizens of the future that hold the core values embedded in their personality.
The staff at Al-Faisal College – Liverpool are enthusiastic, energetic, dynamic, dedicated and committed to providing a safe and supportive environment. We believe every child can learn, given the right environment. Students have access to research based, well developed, balanced curriculums that are evidence based. This enables students to become successful, confident and creative individuals that are active and informed citizens for the 21st century.
The college provides opportunities for teachers to engage in professional discourse, work collegially within and across the Al-Faisal Colleges and engage in professional development to keep them abreast with current educational trends and best teaching practices.
Community values and spirit is an important component of the school’s ethos. We immerse the students in various community initiatives to give back to the local and wider community. The SRC annually visit the Liverpool Hospital to distribute toys to sick children. The Year 6 students attend the local child care centres to read to the preschoolers and toddlers. We have raised money for such organisations as the Heart Foundation, the Cancer Council, SIDS Foundation, Prada-Willi Foundation, the Australian Farmers donating $15 000 to the Country Women’s Association and the Bushfire Relief appeal. To promote respect, tolerance and acceptance of all students the High School Welfare Team runs the Al-Faisal College Peer Support program, which also acts as an additional orientation for Year 7 students. Additionally, we are also involved in The National Day of Action Against Bullying, Harmony Day, NAIDOC and National Sorry Day.
Creative and Critical thinking are essential for students to be productive in the 21st century, therefore the STEM programs are introduced from Kindergarten. The Science, History and Geography programs are embedded with project-based learning that incorporate such software as Scratch, Arduino, TinkerCad, Minecraft and Wix. STEM continues into high school across all subjects. To deepen and extend students’ understanding of topics, they have participated in excursions to the Bathurst Goldfields, Parliament House in Canberra, Featherdale Wildlife Park, Elizabeth Farm, Warragamba Dam, Power House Museum, Bicentennial Park and the Blue Mountains. High School students engage in field trips for Geography and History to Penrith Lakes, Australian National Maritime Museum, Cockatoo Island, Taronga Zoo and the Quarantine Station for Science.
The students’ physical needs are met through the physical education programs such as movement, gymnastics, swimming, athletics and traditional team sports. High student students are taught various sporting skills through their Physical Education subject. They also engage in a sport afternoon every week where they travel off site to participate in aerobics, boxing, fitness training and other sports such as soccer, football and cricket. Creative Arts allows students to express their thoughts and feelings of topics and issues being discussed in class through visual arts, music, dance and drama lessons.
Al-Faisal College – Liverpool has been successful in our NAPLAN results building on solid results each year maintaining an average above the Australian National Average in the areas of English and Mathematics. Students in years 6, 8 and 10 also participate in the VALID which assesses their scientific knowledge and skills again averaging above the state average. Teachers continue to work tirelessly to engage and extend the students.
I thank the parents, the staff and the School Board for their continued support and guidance over the years. We thank Allah Subhaanahu Wa Taala for giving us our success and we look forward to many more successful years Insha Allah.
