Allah (swt) has selected us to pass on His religion to the next generation. This is a great privilege and honour bestowed on us by Him, so let us grasp this opportunity with both hands, wholeheartedly and with sincerity in the hope that maybe He will continue to turn favourably towards us, our families and our community.
We are proud to be a part of the S I Madressa and wish to ensure that we fulfil our duties towards the students that we are teaching. To this end, to ensure that our students benefit to the highest extent possible, the following expectations are set out:
TEACHER’S COMMITMENTS – I will…:
- Be aware of & observe the Islamic Shari’a so that I may be seen as a role model by my students & peers.

- Attend all training sessions as organised by the Madressa and as requested to attend by my HoD.
