Term 3 Online ISO Assessments

During term 3 this year, Grade 4-6 learners switched to online learning for a period of time and ISO Assessments were conducted online. Learners were expected to switch on their cameras, close their eyes and recite the surahs/duas to their respective educators. Educators were impressed by the level of accountability displayed in these young learners and would like to thank the parents for their support in this regard. Jazakallah for working as a team with us to uplift our children.

We would like to commend our intermediate phase learners. Your efforts have proved that the goal of experiencing success in online learning can be achieved with commitment, responsibility and dedication. MashaAllah.

Rabi ul Awwal 1442 Campaign

‘Just as rain gives life to the dead earth, the QURAAN and SUNNAH give life to the dead hearts.’

Rabi ul Awwal the 3rd month of the Islamic calendar, is one of the most significant months in Islamic history because humanity was blessed by the birth of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ

In an earnest effort to bring the Sunnah into our lives, the Al Falaah family embraced this month with great honour and utmost reverence. Educators and learners created an atmosphere befitting the best creation of Allah Ta’aala, sent as an everlasting mercy to mankind.

Seerah Campaign

In order to instill the love of Nabi ﷺ and his noble sunnah within our learners, these were some of the initiatives conducted at school during the blessed month of Rabbi-ul-Awwal:

  • Displays around designated areas of the school.
  • Class and work centred around the Seerah.
  • Durood/Zikr Challenges
  • Nasheeds and informative videos

Alhumdulillah, the atmosphere was electric and the event was thoroughly enjoyed by both learners and educators. This was an ideal opportunity to link learning of the Quraan and Hadith to everyday living. May Allah make us true lovers of Nabi ﷺ.
