A nation’s progress or decline depends on the spirit and consciousness, the upbringing and education, given to its young people. Nations that have raised their young people correctly are always ready for progress, while those who have not done so find it impossible to take even a single step forward. ***

Dear students, parents and teachers, It is almost the end of yet another successful year. Certainly ISIK College continues to move forward into the future with steady growth. We at ISIK College believe that the path to success lies in accepting challenges as opportunities for growth. Our institution inculcates the values of hard work and diligence amongst its students enabling them to overcome obstacles in the journey of their future lives with dignity and poise. In order to achieve our objectives we have teachers and staff dedicated to maintaining high standards in the performance of the students. A broad range of extracurricular activities further refines the students’ spirit of succeeding in a competitive environment. We are proud of the numerous accolades of past and current students for achieving distinction in their pursuits in all walks of life. I am proud of achievements attained by our debating teams, IT project teams, sports teams and various clubs. When we ponder over the dedication of our students in achieving excellence during their tenure in the school and beyond, we realize that these collective efforts are the fabric of what makes ISIK a great educational institution. I would like to extend my thanks to everyone who has made a difference in ISIK College’s success including the students themselves, all our dedicated staff and all parents who have supported us throughout these years. I also would like to thank the Selimiye Foundation Directors and members for their continuous support and their investments into our schools. Millions of dollars have been invested into our schools during the years of my service with ISIK College. Furthermore, I believe Selimiye Foundation will continue to invest further dollars into our schools in the future. New buildings, new facilities, new technological advancements are all signs of our commitment to create nurturing and fostering environment for all the loved ones in the 21st century. Much has been done in the last 15 years but still more needs to be done in the years to come. In the words of the poet Robert Frost, “But I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.... and miles to go before I sleep.” I wish everyone a fruitful 2013 school year, a safe and restful break. Best wishes for all graduating Year 12 students who will leave the nest and fly off to new horizons. May the Lord Almighty be our inspiration and strength through this journey. Kind regards. Mr Tuncay Terzi, Coordinating Principal

Dear Parents, Teachers and Students, When education is addressed usually the first thing comes into mind would be lots of books, teachers, students and rows of buildings. However education is not restricted to schools. Life itself is a school every day we are learning something new. Education starts much earlier than we have anticipated, our mothers would be our first teachers, we would learn our first words from them. Then gradually education would become more complicated when schooling is involved. Every single day, would have an extensive amount of learning. Employment would be the application area of the knowledge. The higher the education we receive, higher the places we would hold in the society. Success would bring recognition and prosperity; on the other hand, no one would be more valuable than a high quality individual who is respectful and beneficial to their parents. Society needs pleasant, cooperative and supportive characters who would help their communities. ISIK values all those attributes above and endeavours to implement them. Every single ISIK student is precious and indispensable as they will design and construct the future. We have very high expectations from them as we know they will use the forthcoming opportunities to the best of their abilities and capacities. The better we educate them the better prospects the future will hold for all of us. I would like to take the opportunity to thank all our dedicated teachers who worked diligently, efficiently and to our parents who were committed and supportive throughout the year. Finally I wish the best for our graduates. May the future be the brightest for all of you. Mr Ali Goru, Principal

Dear Parents & Friends, As we see another school year end, we reflect on the events that made 2012 a wonderful year for all of us. We are proud of the many accomplishments and successes of all our staff and students throughout the year. Our students have demonstrated success through academic achievement as well as through extra-curricular involvement and leadership activities. At ISIK we are proud of the level of participation of our students beyond the classroom. These activities include ICAS competitions, pastoral care, athletics, music and end of year concerts. In our ongoing efforts to help ensure a positive educational climate and experience, we pledge to always put our students first in all decisions, we will continue to effectively communicate with parents; we will work collaboratively with all stakeholders to support our students' learning, inshallah. Therefore, our students are expected to always work smart, get along with peers and follow school procedures. Thank you to ALL our staff, including teachers, secretaries, counsellors, teacher aides, librarians, the nurse - for your dedication in providing a supportive and caring environment, in the best interest of each child. As you get ready for the summer, whether you are travelling or just relaxing with friends and family, remember to have a safe and enjoyable time. Happy holidays! Ms Evla Han, Deputy Principal

Wow! What a year it has been! It has been an exciting new journey for our prep students. Although it has been a challenging year, with the determination of our teachers, students, aids and parents, we have made much progress. This has been reflected in the students learning, work and achievements. As our students complete the first year in prep, it is worth taking time to reflect on the past twelve months and the extent of achievements that have been achieved. There are countless memories that come to mind when reflecting back on 2012, some of these include; learning how to read, write and work with numbers in different ways. Other highlights include; the Buddy program with Grade 6’s, Character parade, excursion to Bundoora Farm, Scienceworks and Bowling, celebrating 100 days at school, and the many arts and craft activities completed in class. With incorporating the “You Can Do it” program in our classes, the students have learnt the importance of resilience and getting along This has enabled the students to build good relationships with their friend’s and they have also learnt the importance of respecting and valuing one another. To all our wonderful students, believe in yourself and you will achieve success in a variety of ways. Feel confident in your own skills and abilities. Always remember you have within you the strength, the patience and the passion to reach for the starts and change the world. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students, teachers, aids, parents and volunteers who have helped to make this year a success. On behalf of the prep team, we wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday and look forward to a successful and productive 2013. Ms Kader Akay, Infant Dept. Coordinator

It gives me a great pleasure to congratulate all grade 3&4 students and say thank you to each of every one of you for your hard work, commitment and patience. 2012 is nearly over and it’s surprising how time flies. Now as the year is nearly over and soon grade 3’s become grade 4’s and the grade 4’s become grade 5’s. I wish them all a smooth transition in their new year levels and wish them all the best. We started the 2012 academic year with a new and dynamic team and many challenges ahead of us. We established our goals and outcomes for the year, these include: creating a positive school culture and a supportive and safe learning environment, improving our teaching and learning strategies, and enhancing learning by providing hands on activities, many different excursion and incursion programmes. 2012 has been both challenging and rewarding year for all of us in many aspects. One of the most rewarding aspects of the year was to watch the gradual leaps made by our students, both behaviourally and academically. Many beautiful and solid friendships have been established. Students encountered various educational activities and challenging opportunities to develop in all areas of the curriculum. The success of these initiatives and programmes are a direct result of the dedication of our teachers and students. The concept of teamwork is extremely important to the success of any team. Our team played an important role in overseeing and following up all aspects student progress and development that is, academic, social, physical and emotional. I would like to take this opportunity and thank you our teachers for making it all happen, our students for their hard work and dedication, and of course our parents for their wonderful support.

Dear Parents, Students and Teachers, When I started thinking about why education is so important, I remembered my school years, the grounding years of anyone's education. I went down memory lane; I remembered my teachers, my school subjects, the study and the fun... Our school which lays the foundation of our education, is the institution where we understand why education is so important and how important it is! It is our school, where we learn to read and write and we become literate. It is where young talent is recognized, nurtured and encouraged. On leaving school, we are all set to soar high in life and enter the real world in pursuit of our dreams. Students at Isik College are recognised for their efforts in knowledge gain. Education is aimed at giving students knowledge of the world around us and to develop in them, a perspective of looking at life. Students are encouraged to build opinions and have points of view on things in life. At Isik College, we will start to implement the new Australian Curriculum which has been developed in the first phase for English, Mathematics, Science and History as it has been conceptualised and structured in a way that will make explicit the content that has to be taught, and the depth of understanding, the extent of the knowledge and the sophistication of skills expected of students. Every effort is being made to ensure that challenging standards are set, but that our school curriculum does not become overloaded, that there is time for going deep, and that there are opportunities for including local and topical content. While the traditional structure of scope and sequence within discrete learning areas is retained, with our new curriculum, teachers will give explicit attention to General Capabilities that underpin flexible and critical thinking, a capacity to work with others and an ability to move across subject disciplines

to develop new expertise. The National Curriculum identifies three Cross-Curriculum Priorities- one national, one regional and one global; namely, Indigenous perspectives, Asia and Sustainability. These are not separate areas of learning but rather illustrate how learning can be integrated across the subjects and general capabilities to enable students to engage with current issues in contemporary society. Each of these will be given close attention by our expert teachers and is being scoped and sequenced alongside work for each of the learning area. Our new National curriculum will place primary importance on the general capabilities that all people need, use and develop throughout their life and the big issues of the day that all need to know about, while also providing for foundational knowledge, skills and understanding in the agreed discipline areas. Best wishes for the rest of 2012, Mrs Hatice Demirbas, Deputy Principal (Curriculum)

As literacy is one of the most important foundations for success at school and in life, th e college aims to provide stud ents with the necess ary programs and resources to develop and enha nce their skills, as the simples t acquisition of literac y can have a profoundly empowe ring effect both pers on ally and socially. This year we have be en very fortunate an d have updated our guided reading program with the latest reading resources. St udents are exposed to every link in the literacy ch ain through actively th inking and talking about what th ey read. To further su pport the development of read ing, the college has updated its Home Reading Program . The new readers ar e sure to engage the most reluctant reader with brightly coloured illustrations and photos to help students develop vocabulary an d build comprehensio n skills. Throughout the year students also had th e opportunity to participate in a number of excit ing literacy activities. 1.

Pastoral Care aims to deal with a students’ emotional, academic and behavioural aspect. In order to reach its aim, the Pastoral Care department organises several programs and activities. These program in cooperate many enjoyable trip and educational programs. The students are able to have quality time with their friends and develop long-lasting relationships. Also Pastoral Care caters the emotional support a student needs during his or her primary life. The student can feel comfortable to approach their teachers and mentors during difficult times. The teachers and mentors also are one in one contact with the students’ family. This results in a better system of achieving great mannered and successful student. The Pastoral Care also organises discussions in the favour of the student interest and needs. Pastoral Care also builds up the student’s cultural, religious and moral background. Pastoral organises a huge variety of activities including excursions, reading camps over the holidays, the celebration of the holy nights, incursions and fundraising for the needier. The students from grade 4 to 6 have holiday, reading camps that encourages the students to read and learn new things. There are other organisations including iftar dinners, afterschool programs and mother-daughter dinners. In addition throughout the year Pastoral Care serves the purpose of helping the needy countries, such as Africa, Indonesia, Pakistan, and Burma with campaigns such as the Selimiye Qurban Campaign. Pastoral Care’s sole purpose is to serve its students the best moral and psychological support. The Pastoral Care Department of Isik College Primary believes that every student is precious for a golden generation. “If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.”- Mahatma Gandhi Mrs Hatice Gungor, Deputy Principal (Pastoral Care)

Pastoral Care embraces more than the giving of well prepared, thought provoking and stimulating lessons. It means being concerned for the total well being of students, and with the development of the whole person within the context of the family, school and wider community. Pastoral Care at Isik is not just practised in the Pastoral Care program; it permeates school life. We acknowledge that each student is an individual who has strengths and weaknesses. If we can show students that their strengths can be built upon in such a way that selfesteem will also be enhanced, then in most cases, weakness will diminish. At the same time, students will come to recognise that there are people who care for them, people who are willing to share their burdens. We aim to have our students finish their Isik years richer in spirit than when they arrived. On specific days throughout the week, students from Grade 4 to 6 are involved in various activities, including book reading, excursions, family visits, Iftar dinners, reading camps over the holidays, sharing a meal and engaging in activities that develop team spirit. Pastoral Care also supports campaigns such as fundraising and Qurban Campaign with the support of our parents, students and teachers. Mr Mustafa Kus, Pastoral Care Coordinator

It has been an absolute pleasure being the Upper Department Coordinator this year at Isik College. It has been an incredible journey and I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to my team of teachers, staff, students and parents for their wonderful support throughout the academic year. Our students in grade 5 and 6 have shown us so many positive qualities and have made us proud in so many ways. When we look back and reflect, we can certainly say that it was a busy and productive year for us all. Good luck to all our grade 5 students who will be the big brothers and sisters of our school next year. We look forward to the inspirational year that awaits us in 2013 and know you will be a positive role model for the younger students. To our grade 6 students who are heading off to high school, I wish you all the best. Look back on your experiences and cherish all those fond memories you have had. Remember all your wonderful teachers that have made an amazing contribution to your lives. Never give up on your dreams and wishes and be proud of your achievements. Warmest wishes, Ms.Emel Tanriverdioglu Upper Dept. Coordinator
