About Al-Faisal College - Liverpool
Alhamdulillah, 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. Stage 3 of construction has begun that will give us access to an additional 10 classes allowing the school to continue to grow.
The core values of faith, knowledge and success forms the basis of our beliefs, practices and teaching. The staff at Al-Faisal College are enthusiastic, energetic, dynamic and dedicated, committed to providing a safe and supportive environment and providing all students with access to a research based, well-developed, balanced curriculum that meets the needs of the learner and provides opportunities for students to become successful, confident and creative learners that are active and informed citizens. The teachers regularly engage in professional discourse and development sessions to continue to expand their pedagogical knowledge and continue to provide students with effective teaching practices.
This year has been full of fun, laughter, learning and hard work. The students have participated in numerous initiatives to encourage positive contributions in the community, such as visiting the Bankstown and Liverpool Hospital to distribute toys to sick children and visiting child cares to read to pre-school students. To promote tolerance and multiculturalism, many activities were organised for Harmony Day and NAIDOC week. To enhance students creative and critical thinking, K-6 students have participated in the STEM program (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) program, Robotics and Animation programs. To deepen and extend students understanding of topics, they have participated in excursions to Calmsley Hill Farm, Featherdale Wildlife, Sydney Botanical Gardens, Casula Powerhouse Museum and Liverpool Council to name a few.
The students’ physical needs are met through the physical education programs such as movement, gymnastics, swimming, athletics and traditional team sports including soccer and basketball. 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. Regular assemblies allow students to show parents what they have been learning and their creative sides.
This is the first year, Al-Faisal College completed the National Assessment Program (NAPLAN) for Years 3 and 5. Our students and teachers have worked tirelessly and achieved pleasing results across both English and Mathematics. As a school we were above national average in most areas. Congratulations to the students and teachers for their hard work, dedication and perseverance.
I thank the parents, the staff and the School Board for their continued support and guidance throughout the year. We thank Allah Subhaanahu Wa Taala for giving us a successful year and look forward to many more Insha Allah.
