Time Matters
We request parents to bring their child(ren) to the Madressa on time, just as they would do for school, to avoid disruptions and delays in joining the class. Please allow sufficient time for your journey considering the usual congestion at the site and time required to find parking.

Please note: Side gates at Northwood will be closed at 10:00am sharp. Parents will then have to enter via the main entrance to the reception area and recorded as 'Late'.
Classes 1-4: IQRA Day  

Following on from the success and enthusiasm for last year's IQRA day, our next IQRA Day will be on Sunday 19th February, 2017.

We ask that you send your children with their favourite Islamic story book and if they want to, they can dress up as their favourite character - please bear in mind that children should not dress up as any of the 14 Ma'sumeen (AS).

The children will then be asked to give a short summary on their books in their classes, so please could you prepare them for this.

If you require an Islamic book, you can also visit the Children's Islamic Library in the Annexe building at Stanmore Islamic Centre, and terms and conditions for usage of the library as well as opening hours can be found here (http://www.childrensislamiclibrary.com/termsandconditions.php).

We sincerely hope you will support us in this noble venture for the children’s upliftment.

Invitation for Classes 9-12: MUN Training  
The Higher Education Department of the SI Madressa have now been engaged in training delegates for Model UN debates and conferences for over 18 months. We are the first voluntary faith-based organisation to engage in this activity and so far have won 5 awards in recognition at conference.

The purpose of these activities is to bring our practical use of the morals and values of our faith and bring them into a public's applicable and globally renowned program.

The Model UN program seeks to replicate the processes and procedures of the United Nations to allow young adults to discuss, debate, deliberate and demand change in issues of global significance and local importance from the environment and healthcare to solving some of the world's longest running and bloodiest conflicts. Delegates gain an in depth understanding of the issues and their nominated countries position on them understanding of them through self motivated study and research.

The training sessions are led by Ali, Abbas and Imran Kermalli who, between them have the experience of participating in over 40 conferences in the UK and France and have taken significant positions of leadership in the organisations at secondary school and university undergraduate level.

The HED Model UN team will insh'Allah participate in its fourth conference at The Haberdasher Askes School, Elstree in March. Your child can be trained to join them. Training session take place on Thursday nights at 8:30pm to 10pm and on Sunday mornings at the Madressa's new premises at Northwood School from 1:30pm to 2:30pm.

Please do encourage your child to join us to experience the life of a diplomat and how they can build their own personal development through this activity.
