5-7 Class Teachers Last Lesson  
Last lesson teachers of students in Classes 5-7 are reminded that in addition to bringing their students down for pick-up, they must remain with their students until 1:45pm. Any students not collected by this time should be escorted to the canteen for late pick-up.  
Sadaqa Day - March 26th, 2017  

“Do not feel ashamed if the amount of charity is small because to refuse the needy is an act of greater shame.” (Imam Ali (AS)

On Sunday 26th March 2017, SIM is holding its Annual Sadaqa Day. Alhamdulilah, we are honoured to be partnering with the following charities this year:

  • Al-Mizan
  • Bags to Achieve
  • Refugee Council
  • Sufra NW London
  • Salusbury World

This Sunday, 12th March, 2017, students will be requested to bring in various items to donate to the charities on the day.  A list of the items that each class have been assigned and that students can bring is available here

Please note that students must bring in the items ON Sunday 26th March, 2017 and drop them off at the assigned drop-off points which will be confirmed prior to Sadaqa Day.

There will also be activities taking place throughout the day helping students be more aware and realise the importance that Islam places on the giving of Sadaqa. 

We are inviting parents to join us and take part in what promises to be a great day where we all come together to help those less fortunate than ourselves, Insh'Allah.

Disability Awareness Day  
Following the success of last year’s disability awareness day for Class 4, the Learning Support Department for Junior classes organised another awareness day for Class 4.

The 4 classes (2 boys and 2 girls) spent 20 minutes at each of the 5 stations learning more about the following disabilities: Downs Syndrome, Hearing Impairment, Physical Disability, Autism and Developmental Delay.

Each station included an introduction to the disability, a video clip or PowerPoint presentation and an activity or discussion. The talks were given by Learning Support Assistants from our team some who are parents of children with disabilities as well as external speakers with disabilities.

External Message: SJ Sisters Lit: Screening of 'Why can't I be a Sushi?'  


For the first time watch BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE!


This documentary follows the journey of two young journalists - Niamh (aged 10) and her sister Sofia (aged 8) as they try to wrap their heads around something incredibly serious and weighty: the sometimes-bloody Sunni – Shia conflict that has been going on for decades.

The girls talk to religious figures, scholars, well known clerics, believers, political pundits, the public and more, all in the hope of understanding this absurd conflict and its routes.

As they continue on the road of discovery, the two journalists soon realise that what unifies us as Muslims is far greater and more powerful than our differences.

Directed in a light-hearted and innocent way, the film tackles a series of hard hitting and pertinent points without causing offence or apportioning blame. It offers the audience a chance to consider how religious choices and practices may appear to the outside world, all through the eyes of these two innocent sisters.

This refreshing documentary takes us back to our routes and reminds us of the simplicity of practicing the religion of Islam.
