Garden College Values


We respect the diversity and beauty of all world cultures and heritages and hold high regard for all our school community members. We promote all school stakeholders the freedom to be heard. We make time to listen, understand and respect each other’s perspective even when we disagree.

  • “O you who believe! No men should (ever scoff) at other men. Maybe, the latter is better than the former. Nor should women (ever scoff) at other women. Maybe the latter women are better than the former ones. And do not find fault with one another, nor call one another with bad nicknames. Bad is the name of sinfulness after embracing faith. If anyone does not repent, then such people are wrongdoers.” {Qur’an Surat Al Hujraat 49:11}
  • “He is not of us who is not affectionate to his young ones and does not honour the elderly, and he is not of us who does not encourage what is good and prohibit what is evil.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ


We uphold Islamic values which denote all universal values of peace and strong moral principles. We strive to conduct ourselves in a caring, honest, genuine and reliable manner with all our interactions and daily life.

  • “And when they hear false and vain talk, they withdraw from it and say, ‘to us our deeds and, to you your deeds. Peace be to you. We seek not the ignorant.” {Qur’an Surah Al Qasas 28:55}
  • “No man can attain a true faith unless he develops strength of character and that cannot be achieved unless one acquires the habit of speaking the truth.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ


We look out for those facing hardship or challenges. We make a concerted effort to feel the emotions of others and to ensure we mirror the compassion modelled by the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ shown to every living being and the environment.

  • “and to parents do good and to relatives, orphans, and the needy. And speak to people good [words]” {Qur’an Surat Al Baqarah 2:83}
  • “Who is the most favoured of God: The one from whom the greatest good comes to His creatures.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ


We demonstrate our commitment by making decisions based on informed judgement. We strive to find high standard solutions and to achieve outstanding sustainable outcomes for all our students.

  • “Woe to those who give short measure, who demand of other people full measure for themselves, but give less than they should, when it is they who weigh or measure for others!” {Qur’an Surat Al Mutaffifin 83:1-3}
  • “And each man is held responsible for his actions.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ


We are open to new ideas and insights to ensure we continually improve ourselves. We uphold our responsibilities and work hard to always be our best and to provide the best.

  • “For everyone, there is a direction to which he turns his face. Strive, then to excel each other in good deeds. Wherever you are, Allah will bring you all together. Allah is certainly powerful over everything.” {Qur’an Surat Al Baqarah 2:148}
  • “The best of people are those that bring the most benefit to the rest of mankind.” Prophet Muhammad ﷺ
