The President of Muslims Australia AFIC and Chairman of Islamic School of Canberra board, Mr Ikebal Patel is pleased to announce the relocation of Islamic School of Canberra to its permanent site in Weston. “Students at the Islamic School of Canberra commenced term two classes at the new home with enthusiasm and great excitement”, he said.

Mr Patel expressed appreciation to the Chief Minister of ACT, Mr Jon Stanhope MLA for his inclusive vision and recognition of community needs.

In a statement made previously, Mr Stanhope had stated “The Islamic School of Canberra has made a positive contribution to the diversity and quality of education in the ACT.”

Mr Patel reiterated the importance of education in Islam and the duty and responsibility of community leaders, teachers and parents to work in collaboration with local and federal governments to ensure all reasonable steps are taken to provide adequate facilities to achieve this important objective.

Mr Patel said, “ At the Islamic School of Canberra we aim to provide our children the highest quality education within an Australian curriculum and we certainly expect to see valued Australian citizens contributing positively and putting back into this beautiful land – an enduring legacy”.

The outstanding results of the very first NAPLAN tests for the Islamic School of Canberra in 2009 is a testimony to the level of education provided at the school, added Mr Patel. All Canberran’s are welcome to send their children to the Islamic School of Canberra.
