Student enrolments more than double in recent boom at Victoria's Islamic schools
by Kathryn Powley
The number of students attending Victorian Islamic schools has more than doubled in eight years, with almost 8000 kids now attending the religious schools.
In 2007, there were 3900 students enrolled in five Islamic schools. This year there are 7910 students in seven schools.
That represents a 103 per cent increase, contributing to a 16 per cent overall increase in independent school enrolments.
