AN Islamic school in Sydney's southwest has been ordered to pay back $9 million in public funds after it was found to be operating for profit, the NSW government says.
Education Minister Adrian Piccoli says he has written to the Malek Fahd Islamic School in Greenacre ordering it to repay the funds following a random audit.
"Any school found to have operated for profit will have been deemed to have used their funds inappropriately and in that case I have an obligation as minister to recover those funds," Mr Piccoli told reporters in Sydney in Tuesday.
"For any period that it operated for profit ... any taxpayer funds given to it will be recovered by the NSW government."
The school owed $9 million, he said.
