Welcome to Arabic Culture School !
The staff and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you and your family to our school community.
We have just under 150 students enrolled this year with classes from Kinder up to Year 9, catering to both native and non-native Arabic speakers. We have a dedicated team of over 20 volunteer teachers and support staff, who are all committed to the comfort and applied learning of your child in the Arabic Language. We encourage all parents to play an active role in their children's schooling.
Over the last 25 years, many people in the community have voluntarily worked very hard to ensure that this school continues to flourish and provide the best opportunities for creating community and instilling the love of the Arabic language to your child.
Last year (2018) was a year of transformation from a school administration and management perspective, which meant more time for teachers with the kids. This year, in 2019, we’re looking at creating more structure and cohesion in delivering the Victorian curriculum across more class groups – which will mean students will really be asked to step up this year.
We have wonderful community support and involvement and we hope to increase that this year. We welcome parental involvement in the school. We believe that cooperation and support between home and school is essential in producing the desired results and essential in securing a positive educational climate. Should you have a concern, please discuss it fully with your child’s teacher, or make an appointment with the Principal or Vice Principal.
I encourage you to become involved in as many ways as you possibly can. It is exciting to see how positively children respond when they see their parents contributing and taking part in their education and activities. Our teachers are extremely dedicated and they care for the welfare of your child but they require your collaboration from home to continue on the work they are doing. I know we can build on the strengths of our school that have provided an excellent education for the children of ACS over the last 26 years.
