ISGH Sunday School
By the grace of Allah last year we had good number of students enrolled and we thank the teachers and parents who worked for the school. In shaa Allah we are planning to be more organised this year. Islamic education being our first priority, we will also concentrate in developing other skills by making the students participate in different events. We would prefer to have all the kids enrolled early as it will help us in identifying the correct class and prevent us from disturbing the class by adding new student every week. So please register your kids early.

Parents’ Role in the School:Here are some ways in which you can help your children to reinforce what they have learnt in the school:
1. Discuss with your children what they have learnt in school. If they have learnt any Surahs/Duas, help them to memorize them. Praise them for their effort. If they are not doing well or not taking interest in their work, come and talk to the teacher and find out how you can help. If you need to see a class teacher, please arrange a time before or after school.
2. Make sure they do their homework regularly. If a child continuously does not complete homework, parents will be informed. If there is no response after the warning, the child will be removed from school.
3. Bring and collect them from school on time. Lessons begin at 10:15am and finish at 1:15pm.
4. Make sure that you are good role models for your children at home and at school. At school arrive at 1:00pm to pray Dhur with your child.
5. Read the school policies and make sure you are following the rules.
Education starts at home, exerting a strong influence on the upbringing of a child. The children are our future, so it is up to parents/teachers to educate them in such a way that they will grow up with the help of Allah (S.W.T) to be confident, practicing Muslims. IT IS A VENTURE WHICH SHOULD CONCERN THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY.
