Al Siraat College was the aspiration of Mr Fazeel Arain, College Director and Mrs Rahat Arain, Director of Student Learning. Fueled with a passion for holistically educating not only their own children but also other Muslims growing up in the Australian context, led them on a journey to commence Al Siraat College.
The rural property on Harvest Home Road Epping was purchased towards the end of 2007. The property has many heritage icons including the original homestead and bluestone barn of the Lochaber Estate, now over 160 years old.
Al Siraat College commenced in 2009 with 78 students from Foundation to Year 4 in a custom-built portable building. Now in its 14 years of serving and educating our wonderfully diverse local school community, the College has grown to over 1,100 students from Foundation to Year 12 in 2022.
Al Siraat College has the capacity to continue to grow to 1,500 students in the future, inShaAllah.
From a dream for quality independent Islamic Schooling to the reality of Al Siraat College, Mr and Mrs Arain are delighted with how the College is being embraced and nurtured by the extended community.
Al Siraat College organises an annual Eid toy drive for underprivileged children in our community. The students and teachers work with NZF in distributing these toys to those children in need.
