Parents have vowed to continue protests and boycotts until Islamic College of SA board resigns

FOR years it was the pride of the Muslim community, a school that reached out to its neighbours and helped promote cultural understanding across Adelaide.

Migrant students from across the globe were taught to be proudly Australian, regularly singing the national anthem and their own school song. But they don’t sing any more.

A deep rift between parents and management threatens the future of the Islamic College of South Australia.

Relations have soured to the point where hundreds of parents kept their children at home on Friday in protest against the school’s board and they say they will organise more boycott days until the board resigns.

    ‘Parents say educational standards are plummeting and a modest music program has been scrapped. They are also appalled at plans for a mosque and more classrooms on a school site that lacks playspace.’

    Sounds like that ‘Australian’ Islamic school has a full on case of the Sharia Virus.

    Let them declare their apostasy from genuine Islam. There is no moderate Islam. Find a non-Islamic school and leave the Islam behind, forever.

    My guess would be that Saudi money has come in with strings attached.

    That is a real Islamic school. Raw in it’s brutality. Why protest? What’s hilarious is Normal australians are funding it. Classic!

      They’re following the same play book as UK Trojan Horse schools.
