Principal's Welcome

Assalamu alaykum and welcome to Arabic Culture School,

The leadership, staff and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you and your family to our Arabic school community.

We run accredited Arabic classes from Kinder up to Year 10 (subject to student enrolments), 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 30 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 and culture to your child.

This year, we've moved to a Saturday timetable - bringing us in line with the majority of community language schools in Victoria. As a school, we'll also be reapplying for our accreditation with the Department of Education again this year, which will transform the way we organise and deliver the approved curriculum. We have our plans in place and work towards achieving them - ready to pivot if conditions change.

We have wonderful community support and involvement and we hope to increase that this year. 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 30 years.
