AIC Board

The Board of the Australian Islamic Colleges Ltd was formed in May 2017. Remuneration is not received for the positions, and a College Board member is not eligible to be simultaneously a Board member and employee of the College. The Executive Principal attends all Board meetings as an Ex-Officio Member. Every Board member complies with best-practice governance requirements by having a National Police Clearance and by signing a declaration regarding eligibility to hold the position as a fit and responsible person.

The role of the Board is to govern the College, while it is the function of the Executive Principal to manage the organisation in accordance with the policies and directions set by the College Board. The Board establishes the strategic framework for College policies and implementation of these is the responsibility of the Executive Principal. The Board and the Executive Principal work in partnership for the overall wellbeing of the College and its students. The Board must comply with all relevant statutory regulations. 

Communication on Board matters is the responsibility of the Chairman. Therefore individual Board members are not at liberty to discuss (outside the meetings) any policies or business under consideration. Once a decision has been made by the Board it is documented and then communicated to the College community, either by direct communication from the Chairman or through implementation processes overseen by the Executive Principal.

Testimonials

I feel proud Ma Sha Allah my children are going to this college where there is no discrimination of race or status, where humanity and modesty are obviously radiant, where there is no bullying and simplicity takes pride. I know there may be some other better schools for worldly education but as one of my friends says isn't it good enough if our children are educating and developing a desire and habit of saying Salah with congregation! Indeed it is good enough. Jazak Allah Khair to all the staff/ board members making efforts to blossom this school even better. May Allah give you huge rewards in this world and the hereafter.

It is with great pleasure that I am writing this testimonial for Australian Islamic College Adelaide. Over the past 8 years my four children have been attending Australian Islamic College Adelaide and to say they have enjoyed their time there is an understatement. They have thrived in this environment. AICA's wonderful staff make each and every child feels being special and unique whilst providing them with excellent academic skills needed as they make transition from reception to “High School”. This is exactly what I as a parent want for my children. The genuine affection and concern that the staff show to the children make AICA a child’s “home away from home”. I know it is rare to find a place with all these outstanding qualities that's why I can recommend Australian Islamic College Adelaide to friends, family and anyone who wants a wonderful caring and learning environment for their children.

Our daughter has been attending Islamic College Pre-Primary for six months and she absolutely loves it! She would walk herself to School if she was able to. The teachers' friendly, nurturing and professional manner helped her settle into pre-primary school routines quickly. Her skills in interpersonal relationships and communication have developed immensely. She now happily communicates with her peers and shares her wants, needs and frustrations more effectively.
