Within the Madressa, all students must adhere strictly to the dress code, outlined below. All students must observe modest dressing.
Why does the Madressa have a Dress code / uniform?
The reason why the Madressa has a dress code or uniform in place, is to re-enforce its purpose as an institute of Islamic learning, whilst at the same time for our students it will re-enforce their primary purpose and focus at the Madressa is for learning which is also the main objective to which they are being brought to Madressa by their respected parents. Furthermore, it is intended that a single uniform will enable an atmosphere of cohesion and unity amongst the student body.
