We are also very grateful to see so many new faces in our school, our new students and their parents. I would like to convey my sincere thanks to our wonderful parents of our existing students to maintain their trust in us in educating their children, and my warmest welcome to our new parents and their children. Thank you for choosing our school for your children’s education.

Student Representative Council:
Alhamdulillah we now have our 2021 AIC Thornlie.
I would like to congratulate the eight students from Year 6’s who after undergoing a selection process and thorough consideration, they have been selected to be members of our Student Representative Council Thornlie Campus 2021.
They are (not in particular order):
Shuhrabeel, Hoorain, Rania, Azyah, Hana, Naa’ila, Mysha and Alisha. Well done and Masha-Allah.
During their speech presentation in Week 5, they displayed confidence and they showed many great ideas that they would like to implement in our school or to contribute to the school. We are very proud of them all. I would like to congratulate their parents as well.
We are really blessed to have them at our school. They consistently display exemplary behaviour and the school role models for their peers, and very importantly for the younger students.
Alhamdulillah, by being the SRC members, they have a great opportunity to learn and display many skills such as public speaking, organisation, get along, collaboration, working in a team and leadership. This is very important as they are all our future leaders.
There are a variety of events taking place this term. Some of these events are:
- ACER Diagnostic Assessment was administered to identify where your child sits in terms of their literacy and numeracy levels.
- Mid-Term and End of term Assessments.
- On Entry Assessments for Pre-Primary students.
Clean up Australian Day
The school participated in ‘Clean Up Australia Day’. Our Lower Primary students helped to clean up our school on Friday 5th March, our Upper Primary students were involved in cleaning up a public vacant land in 310 Spencer Road, Thornlie. Mr Chris Tallentire MLA and Mr Mat Keogh MP were involved in cleaning together with our students. We are very proud of them and their valuable contribution to the Australian community at large and how they demonstrated our belief that in Islam cleanliness is half of Iman.

Last but not least, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our teachers and staff members for their tremendous effort and hard work, and our parents for their wonderful support. We work together as a strong team in helping our children to achieve success in this world and in the Here-After.
