Principal’s Message

Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuhu
In the Name of Allah, the most Gracious, the most Merciful, the Mercy-giving. Praise is to Allah whom we ask for help, protection and forgiveness. We seek the protection of Allah from the sins of ourselves and our deeds. No one can misguide whom He guides and whom He does not guide will never find a guide.

At East Preston Islamic College we encourage the active participation of parents/guardians in what is happening at the school and we welcome assistance from parents/guardians with school programs where needed. The College also offers support to students and their families through a dynamic Well- Being team.

The philosophy for the College students at East Preston Islamic College requires that the College provide a rich, useful and stimulating educational and Islamic experience, and one that provides for the development of their skills and aptitudes while preparing them to have “SUCCESS HERE” in whatever their choice might be according to their ability, and “SUCCESS HEREAFTER”. It is my pleasure to welcome you to our College Community and hope and pray to Allah (swt) that you will be as excited as we are of the opportunities on offer at East Preston Islamic College.
