Traffic, Drop-Off and Pick-Up Update
The Car Park Volunteers have been working diligently to create a guidance for parents dropping and picking their children from the Madressa. Click here to view the communication was sent on Wednesday 18th January, 2017 with clear updates on Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up.

As stated in the communication pack students in :
Classes 5-7: To be picked up at the same area as class 4. If authorised by parent in writing to the Madressa (admin@madressa.net), they may leave the site unattended or with an older sibling.
Classes 8-12: Students may leave the site on their own accord, assuming parents are already waiting.
Main Entrance  

The main entrance of the school is

  • NOT to be used for regular Drop-off and Pick-up.
  • to be used for late arrivals, late pick-up, and early pick-up
  • to be used if a parent needs to talk to a member of administration
Late Student Pick-up  
Classes 1-4‚Äč:

If you have not collected your child(ren) by 1.25pm, or are a volunteer who cannot collect your child until 1:30pm, your child will be escorted to the dining area and must be collected from there.

Classes 5-7 (and any other late pick ups):

Children will be escorted to the dining hall at 1:40pm.

Parents must come through the reception area (main gate) as side doors will not be accessible after 1:45pm and make their way to the dining hall to pick up their child(ren).

HED Students cannot leave premises  
Students in Higher Educations (11 and 12) will not be allowed to leave the premises at any time during the Madressa day. As protocol, they are to attend for the full day and will be granted permission to leave along with all other students.  
Required Resources for Qur'an Appreciation  

Each child in Classes 5 - 10 is required to bring their own copy of the Qur'an with english translation, each week to the Madressa. This 'personal Qur'an' is to help the student build a personal connection.

The Qur'an Appreciation Department recommends 
The Qur'an: With a Phrase-by-Phrase English Translation translated by 'Ali Quli Qara'i or The Qur'an: Translated by M.H. Shakir as it contains a more modern language and will be easier for students to understand and achieve a connection.

While these specific translations are highly recommended, it is only a recommendation. What is essential is that each student has a copy of the Quran with translation to bring with them on Sundays. 

Packed Lunch and Mohr/Turbah  

Please provide a healthy snack or packed lunch for your child. Only bottled water will be permitted during class time. No fizzy drinks allowed during Madressa.

There is no catering facility on site at present, so students must bring their own lunch.

Each student should bring a Mohr/Turbah for Salah time.

Using the Parent Portal  
The Parent Portal is an online platform for the S I Madressa where you can view your child(ren)'s student profile, pay fees, update details, report absences, communicate directly with your child(ren)'s teachers, and more.
