Empowering Muslim Students through sports, faith, and education in a culturally welcoming environment.
I am delighted to welcome you to the Islamic College of Sport.
Our youth are our future, and that is why I am so excited by the establishment of this new and innovative venture.
The College will provide a culturally safe space for Islamic youth to learn, building the foundations upon which they can become the best versions of themselves. Our learning model will take a strength-based approach, and use the power of sport, to create a unique educational experience. It is incredibly exciting.
The establishment of this College is also a significant step forward for the Bachar Houli Foundation. It complements our existing programming that focuses on cultural connection, resilience, and elite performance.
Together, they will provide our youth with all the tools to make the most of the opportunities life presents them with. It will enable them to proudly participate in the broader community, strengthening the services we offer in this wonderful country we all call home.
I look forward the sharing this journey with you.
Bachar Houli, Director.
The Bachar Houli Foundation was established in 2012 working with young Muslim boys and girls for over 10 years. The foundation delivers twelve unique programs reaching 5,000 young people annually and providing opportunities through engagement programs, employment, talent pathways and education. The foundation identified an opportunity to further support young people through sport in providing a unique education experience and using its existing brand to have a positive impact on each individual. The Islamic College of Sport was founded.
We are an independent senior secondary school, offering young Muslim students an environment where they can explore their faith and sense of identity, while completing a holistic and applied education that is connected to genuine sports industry and community experiences. Students at the College study and receive the Victorian Certificate of Education – Vocational Major.
The VCE VM enables learning to occur in a more holistic manner, and accounts for the personal strengths, interests and goals of students. This means that we can develop curriculum and learning experiences that are in context and connected to areas of interest for students.
