WHY MGGS

Spirituality

Muslim Girls Grammar School is an all-girls exclusive school where our Islamic faith and commitment to Quranic values, underpins all aspects of school life.

Empowerment through faith & knowledge

Islamic tradition
Muslim Girls Grammar School draws from the Islamic tradition, such essential elements as integrity, compassion, tolerance, forgiveness, etiquette and Disposition. Together with the school’s Guiding Principles of Empowerment through faith and knowledge, they form the foundation of the school’s ethos and values.
Islamic & Quranic Program
The Islamic and Quranic Studies programs are at the heart of co-curricular programming at MGGS. Through these programs our girls will acquire knowledge and skills and develop character and attitudes that uphold the very essence of Islamic teachings, moral values and code of conduct.

Opportunities to explore the Islamic tradition and its contemporary relevance include weekly sermons led by our Islamic teachers and supported by fellow students, Religious Education classes, sisterhood support groups, guest speakers, special events and the many opportunities to engage in community service initiatives. Through these activities, students have the opportunity to explore their own belief, understand and appreciate the Islamic faith.
