Welcome From the principal
Wisdom College is a Prep to Year 12 College located in Calamvale, Brisbane. We are a multi-cultural, non-denominational College of approximately 400 students and growing. At Wisdom College we welcome students from all ethnic and religious backgrounds.
We are committed to the formation of a non-denominational school where we believe that the most important aspect of a school is its humanity. We work hard to establish a warm, caring environment, to provide a breadth of co-curricular options, and to aspire to high academic standards.
We embrace learning, and we value our teachers, our support staff, and our volunteers. Community is important to us, so we are always exploring ways to build partnerships and relationships with parents, friends, and colleagues both within and beyond our College gates.
When you send your child to us, we know that this is a big decision, and that you have put your faith in us to equip them with the skills they will need to flourish in the workplace, in family, in community and in society. As such, we have tailored, personalised programs for each child, we have excellent facilities and resources, and an array of academic, cultural and pastoral opportunities. Come and see us for yourself. Visit our website, give me a call, or pop in for a tour.
I hope to see you soon.

Why Choose Wisdom?
We are a multicultural environment where diversity is celebrated. We are establishing the blueprint for a kinder, tolerant, more harmonious world.
We provide a personalised experience where the unique needs and aspirations of each child is nurtured. We do this via small classes, caring staff, strong College and family partnerships, and inclusive approaches to learning.
We truly believe in the concept that it takes a village to raise a child. Therefore, our sense of community is very important to us, so that our students feel safe, valued, and are provided with a well-rounded education.
Wisdom College is an independent, non-denominational and co-educational school that was started in 2010. Based in the suburb of Calamvale, on the southside of Brisbane, the College was originally founded by the local Turkish Muslim community out of a desire to provide a culturally diverse educational experience not only for their own children, but also for any children, from any religious or non-religious background.
Initially conceived as a Primary School, it remained as such until 2017 when it began to expand into the secondary years of schooling. The 2022 school year will see the first Year 12 graduates of Wisdom College.
The College has established partnerships with two organisations who provide professional advice, services, and developmental support. These are the Australian Universal Federation (AUF) and the Queensland Education and Cultural Federation (QECF). Further information on these organisations can be found at:
What is Hizmet?
Hizmet literally means “service” in English.
Hizmet is a transnational civil society initiative that advocates for the ideals of human rights, equal opportunity, democracy, non-violence and the emphatic acceptance of religious and cultural diversity. It began in Turkey as a grassroots community in the 1970s in the context of social challenges being faced at the time.
Over the years, Hizmet has transformed from a grassroots initiative to a wider social effort around the world where participants come from all walks of life — they are culturally, geographically, linguistically and religiously diverse.
Hizmet work centers on:
Promoting philanthropy and community service
Investing in education for cultivating virtuous individuals
Organising intercultural and interfaith dialogue for peaceful coexistence
Hizmet is not a religious effort; it is open to every person who shares its core values regardless of whether their values are rooted in Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, agnostic, or any other faith. In fact, in areas where Hindu, Buddhist or other religions are a majority, Hizmet supporters include members of those faiths.
One of the core ideals of Hizmet is not just an emphatic acceptance of religious, cultural, social and political diversity, but actual celebration of this diversity because Hizmet participants consider this diversity as divine will.
Hizmet participants believe that such acceptance is not contrary to one’s devotion to religion, but indeed respecting and embracing fellow humans at the level of our common humanity is part of one’s devotion.
Hizmet participants are inspired by the ideas, life example and vision of Fethullah Gulen, who advocated for deeper personal spiritual devotion that is expressed in social work through the understanding that serving fellow humans is serving God.
