Ms. Michelle Shears
Head of Campus (MSC)
Welcome back to our students and parents and a very warm welcome to our new families who are joining us for the first time in 2022 including the year 6 students. We look forward to building strong and effective partnerships to support student learning and development. I am sure we will get to know you all very soon as we get off to a good start to 2022.

As we begin this New Year, I am confident that the education and opportunities offered to our students will enable them to be well prepared and self-motivated to advance Australia and to participate effectively as World citizens with Muslim Values. Our quality education will allow students to reach their full potential.

Overall, it has been an exciting start to term one with our students back to face to face learning. Our first edition newsletter encapsulates many highlights, particularly in terms of student achievement, student’s leadership and student engagement and wellbeing

OUTSTANDING ACHIEVMENTS FOR THE CLASS OF 2021

There have been some exceptional achievements to start this year and I would like to draw your attention to the following results by our 2021 cohort. It is with great pride that we are celebrating the efforts and outstanding achievements of our 2021 cohort. Our school community can proudly congratulate Susan Hamad and Aiesha Khoder for achieving the DUX as the highest achieving students.

On behalf of the Australian International Academy, we wish all graduates and high achievers the success in their future careers.

Please meet the 2021 Higher Achievers below

ANNOUNCING THE 2022 CAPTAINCY TEAM AND THEIR PORTFOLIOS

COMPASS School Manager

We are encouraging all parents to utilise ‘Compass School Manager’ to facilitate regular communication with parents, students and staff. Compass School Manager gives parents access to:

  • Monitor your child’s attendance, and enter an explanation for absence or lateness
  • View your child’s timetable / schedule
  • Update your family contact details
  • Communicate with your child’s teachers
  • Book parent-teacher conferences
  • Order and pay for your child’s school photos
  • Monitor student progress
  • View student reports

We therefore strongly recommend that ALL parents activate their personal log-in details to take advantage of the facilities available through the Compass Parent Portal and keep up to date on their child’s progress and notifications from the school.

Very soon, towards the end of March we will prompt parents to book appointments through the Compass Portal for Term 1 parent, teacher and student conferences/interviews which will take place on Friday 8th April. This is a great opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss your child’s progress and improvement.
