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. Stages 4 and 5 are nearing completion which will house the high school classes, with 21st century facilities that include Science labs, Food and Technology rooms, Computer labs and specialty rooms.
The core values of faith, knowledge and success form the basis of our beliefs, practices and teaching. We are a Positive Behaviour Support School, explicitly teaching all students what the values of respect, ownership, achievement, resilience and safety looks like, sounds like and feels like 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 discourses, 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. All teachers are encouraged to engage in additional professional development externally.
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 and the Australian Farmers donating $15 000 to the Country Women’s Association. To promote respect, tolerance and acceptance all students are involved in Harmony Day, NAIDOC and Sorry Day activities.
Creative and Critical thinking is 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, 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 and Taronga Zoo 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 a sport afternoon every week where they travel off site to participate in aerobic, boxing and fitness training and other sports. 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 their NAPLAN results building on solid results each year maintaining an average above the Australian National Average in the areas of English and Mathematics. Year 6 and 8 students also participate in the VALID which assesses their scientific knowledge and skills. Teachers continue to work tirelessly to 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 success years Insha Allah.
