Dear Students, Parents and Community
Education is the business of producing successful global citizens. At AIC we cherish the opportunity to teach young minds, mould their personalities and mentor them towards success in this life and the next.
We aim to give every student in our care the very best possible education in order to prepare them for life beyond school. We are a ‘Learning Community’ which encourages staff, students, past students and parents to involve themselves fully in all aspects of school life and to identify themselves with its core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Cooperation and Achievement.
At AIC Dianella, our students push intellectual boundaries, enjoy the freedom to experiment, engage in rigorous debate, strive for personal bests, embrace abundant leadership opportunities, learn to overcome obstacles and pray, laugh and grow.
Our high school is not just a girls’ school. It is a school for girls. In a single gender setting girls are free to be spontaneous, to have greater self-confidence and to build a self-esteem which is grounded in self- awareness rather than in image.
The College staff are highly professional: their commitment underpins the warmth and strength of this school community. We know how important good relationships are in a school and how education is based on a strong partnership between the School and the home. As such our staff, welcome and encourage open and positive communication with parents.
I take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to visit our School by contacting us, and discover firsthand what makes AIC Dianella so special.
May Allah bless you with the best of both worlds.

Parents and Friends
AIC Dianella Campus – Parents & Friends
As salamu alaykum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatahu
Peace be unto you and so may the mercy of Allah and His blessings
The ‘Parents & Friends’ is open to all parents and friends of the Australian Islamic College Dianella Campus community.
P&F meetings are a great place to find out what is happening in the school, gain a better understanding about school policies and activities, make a comment, raise a concern or ask a question, and get to know other parents in our school community.
At AIC Dianella Campus, the P&F and the school have a very close and positive relationship. The P&F is one avenue you may like to explore to support the school in making AIC Dianella Campus an even better place for your children and our students.
At AIC Dianella Campus the aim of P & F is to:
- Connect with each other socially and with the school
- Contribute to their children school activities
- Create opportunities to get together and be involved in the school community
- Build and strengthen community spirit and enhance communication within our family involvement in the AIC School community.
- Exchange ideas on current issues
- Give back through volunteering time and expertise
- Promote a positive learning and social environment;
- Act as a liaison between the school and parents;
- Support Class Representatives;
- Provide a forum for parents to find out what is happening and what is planned for the school;
- Raise funds to provide services, facilities and equipment for the school;
- Support school services including the Uniform shop, School canteen and school vegetable garden
- Supporting school graduation
- Provide support and advice to the Principal and Executive team;
Any parent/carer is welcome to participate as a member of the P&F. Nominations take place annually at the P&F Annual General Meeting. All parents, staff and any other members of the school community are welcome to attend the meetings.
Parents can come to the classroom to assist with activities like reading, art, Physical Education and many other things. Parents can involve in the curriculum and learning and teaching at the school by
- participation in discussions about these areas
- attending parent information sessions organised by the school
- attending parents meeting held once per term
- individual appointment with the teachers
- attending workshops e.g. social media, better parenting, managing challenging children etc. by external speakers organised by school.
Parents can share this information with the whole school community and can build on this by asking those parents who have little or no involvement to get involved in one of these areas and thereby building a school community that is active and involved.
