Principal's Welcome

Assalam u alaykum wr wb
All thanks and praise to Allah Subhano Taa’ala and we send salutations to Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings be Upon Him) and his family.

Welcome to the Islamic College of Brisbane website. This is my eighth year at ICB and from July, 2019 I have been appointed as the new Principal replacing Dr Barrett, who has retired.  
ICB has undergone significant changes to its management and administration this year. Mr Ali Kadri who has served on the school board for the last five years has taken over as the new Board Chair. College now has its new Deputy Principal, Mr Muamar and Imam Riyaaz has been appointed as Director of Faith and Arabic.
We, the staff, are passionate about the work we are doing to provide our students with an excellent educational experience as well as creating a more supportive and healthier school climate with Islamic traditions.  At ICB we will always hold the highest expectation for children in attaining their academic best and developing the whole child. Our school’s motto:  ‘seek knowledge,’   provides  the highest level of challenge aimed at empowering students to learn with resiliency, act with empathy and live with integrity.
We enjoy wonderful facilities, including air-conditioned classrooms, prayer hall, library, Multi -Purpose Hall, computer and science labs, under cover basketball court, ovals, cricket pitch along with the Preppies Park and Karawatha Park for all our children. Our new five storey secondary building now under construction comprising of 18 classrooms, industrial art and hospitality centres will be yet another big addition to existing facilities. It is expected to be completed by July 2020, Insha Allah, and we are looking forward to moving secondary school there with the best of the facilities.
The college has established Welfare department in 2017. It now has Head of Welfare, wellbeing coordinator, nurse and counsellors.  ICB’s Quran Hifz ( both for boys and girls)  and futsal excellence programmes are   progressing very well. College  has also engaged Camp Australia to provide Before and After School Care services to the students. Our newly established  Diverse Learning Department is making steady progress as well.
Year 2020 will be a landmark year for our college - twenty five years of our college’s existence and we intend to celebrate its Silver Jubilee in a big way and make it a memorable one whilst paying tributes and homage to the founders and everyone else who had supported the college over the years.
We are very fortunate to be in a community where School Board, parents, staff and students are not only eager and willing to work together, but are also willing to make the much needed changes to support a healthier school climate both on campus and at home. Our college staff are dedicated to our students’ growth, confidence and achievement, both academically and spiritually.

We look forward to welcoming you to our college.
