Assalamu Alaikum Wr. Wb.

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We have successfully commenced the new school year by welcoming all staff and students to the AIAE King Khalid Coburg Campus. Preps commenced their schooling one day before other students and all other year levels commenced their studies on Wednesday, 2 February 2022. I would like to welcome, once again, new students and parents to the AIAE community. I hope your journey of learning and development will be successful and enjoyable.

In year level assemblies and classes, we (myself, Deputies, Team Leaders and teachers) have explained to students about our standards and expectations from our students. It is made clear to all that proper conduct, respect, continuous learning and striving to be better skilled and knowledgeable is very important to all concerned. We expect and demand that all students will follow our high standards and expectations.

Student development at the highest level is not possible without high standards and expectations from our staff. We have asked our staff to create a learning environment where all students are able to achieve high levels of skills and knowledge. To achieve this teachers and support staff came back from their summer break and finalised their curriculum material and were prepared and keen to make a positive impact on their students’ learning and overall school experience.

We will within the constraints and restrictions due to Covid-19 will continue to regularly inform students regarding Islam and Academic matters, and general news about what is happening within the school community. In our small group assemblies, classes and in the mosque, we will reinforce proper conduct, Islamic values and what students need to do to achieve Islamic and Academic excellence throughout the year.

In classes, teachers will teach, assess and collect information on each student throughout the term. They will report to you on your child’s progress at the end of this term. A more comprehensive mid-year report will be provided at the end of Term 2.

We believe that each child’s progress is dependent upon teachers, parents, resources at home and at school also shared values, high standards and expectations. We regularly communicate with parents to inform you about our expectations, policies and values so that we work together to advance our students and your children. We started with information on Compass and with this first newsletter for this year. We also held two separate parent information sessions on 7 February for Year Prep to Year 2 parents and on 10 February for Year 3 to Year 5 parents. During the 1.5 hour sessions parents were provided with information regarding the school’s Curriculum, student safety and support systems, Arabic language and Islamic Studies. Parents also met via zoom with their child’s teachers to be informed about year level specific information. I would like to thank all those parents for attending and to staff for assisting and informing our parents.

Throughout the year we will continue to inform you so that you as a parent is a significant contributor in the progress of your child.

Your child’s Form teacher/Classroom is the first teacher to contact should any concerns arise with your child’s education.

We highly recommend that all appointments made by you to meet with any teacher should be outside of the scheduled teaching time. Please contact the office and they will guide you.
