Late arrivals and late pick-ups still remain a great concern. We request to parents to please respect the timings and plan their journey to ensure timely arrival for drop-off and pick-up.
SIM Hearing Impaired Class
Alhamdulillah, on the 26th of February, 2017, the S I Madressa began a Special Class for Hearing Impaired students. It is a great achievement to be able to have the resources to providing an Islamic Education for a small group of students.
A special thanks to the BSL (British Sign Langage) trained volunteers and the Learning Support Team who have made this initiative possible.
We request your prayers for the class to be successful.

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:
Bags to Achieve
Sufra NW London
Last Sunday, 12th March, 2017, students were 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.
