Dear SIM Volunteers,
Salaamun Alaykum

In this week's communications:
  • Staff ID Badges
  • 21st May, 2017 - Bullying Awareness Week
  • External Message: Ramadhan Products for Our Communities
Staff ID Badges  
Many teachers still have temporary staff badges. Please ensure that these are returned to reception this Sunday. These badges are not for staff to keep overnight, but are to be returned at the end of the Madressa Day.

If you are a permanent teacher and do not have an ID badge, please send your photo in to simofficeteam@madressa.net to have your ID badge made.
21st May 2017 - Bullying Awareness Week  
On Sunday 21st May 2017, we would like all MEH staff in all classes to impart a minimum of a 15 minute lesson on bullying type behaviours as outlined below.

Alongside the many examples of exemplary behaviour exhibited by our students on a weekly basis, from time to time we have also witnessed the following behaviour from our students which requires our attention:
  • Name calling
  • Fighting
  • Racial / Ethnic abuse
  • Exclusion from group activity
The Madressa operates a zero tolerance approach on bullying, but furthermore our faith invites us to unite and to resist actions that will divide us – see appendix 1, 2 & 3 for a selection of verses from the Quran supporting the Madressa’s vision for a strong, cohesive and united community.
The lesson should encompass:
  • the nature of a bully
  • the perspective of the victim
  • the importance of the bystander
This does not need to be extensive at this stage as we are only looking to introduce and inform our students that we want them to be conscious of the impact this behaviour has on themselves and others. Resources, including a PowerPoint that you can show, along with an extensive guideline, are available for you here
