Islamia preschool is proud to announce that we have joined in on the save water initiative.

Each class received a water warrior trophy that serves as a reminder to all the leaners. We have bought small bowls and placed them in each of our basins. Once these bowls are full we then reuse this water to water our grass and aunty Sikki mops our floors at the end of the day with the left over water. We have also purchased child friendly water dispensers which enables our learner to access water without opening any taps. We learn each day new things about saving water and we try to implement new practical ideas.

 

Islamia College has become synonymous with academic, moral and sporting distinction. Amidst fears of below par grades countrywide, Islamia College has once again, produced outstanding matric results. Let the numbers speak.

Islamia College students receiving Young Biologists Diamond Awards from the Two Oceans Aquarium


In line with the school’s motto Aspire to Inspire Islamia College students Imraan Ahmed and Abdur Raaziq Firfirey did their school proud when they were awarded DIAMOND CERTIFICATES at the Two Oceans Aquarium Young Biologists Graduation on Saturday. The Diamond Award is the highest award accorded to participating students in this challenge set by the Two Oceans Aquarium. The two students, both in Grade 10, spent most of their free time and holidays at the aquarium doing research, presentations, guided tours and beach clean ups. Life Science teacher Sayeda Shamsodien, who enters students for the challenge every year, says the students never disappoint her in their efforts and they, with the cooperation of parents, always strive to give only their best. She adds that this is the third year in a row that this award was accorded to the school.

In terms of the Young Biologist Challenge students must conform to the criteria set by the TOA. To this end Abdur Raaziq completed 104 hours of volunteering, a beach clean-up and did a presentation to the Eco Club at school.Imraan had offered 57 hours of voluntary work and both of them achieved an assessment of over 80%. In addition to the award, Abdur Raazik received a Special Education Award based on feedback from visitors, his presentation to peers and assistance in running programmes with primary school pupils.

Imraan Ahmed was elated at his award and says he was inspired by his cousin Tauhir Ahmed, also an  Islamia Student in matric, who won the National Computer Olympiad earlier this year. He proceeded to the International Olympiad which was held in the USA. Shaheem Galant, Principal, expressed his gratitude to the students and organisers and iterated that ‘when students enter competititions of any kind they seldom come home empty handed. They always do their level best to bring pride to the school.’

2014 Top Islamia Matric student, Eesa Harris, received a full scholarship from the Two Oceans Aquarium


Another surprise awaited Mr. Galant when his 2014 Top Matric student, Eesa Harris, received a full scholarship from the Two Oceans Aquarium to study Marine Biology at UCT. After matriculating Eesa took time out to explore various fields of study and having been stimulated as a young biologist he offered most of his time to the Aquarium, doing research and expanding his knowledge of marine life. His potential was immediately recognised by the senior staff and he was sent to the Far East to further gain experience. His hard work paid off and he commences his studies in 2017.

The outreach initiative at the Girls’ College for term 3 was collecting grocery items as well as baby clothing for the underprivileged. These items were packed by GET learners during the enrichment period.

The learners accompanied by teachers delivered the parcels to the Lansdowne Informal Settlement and Mowbray Maternity Hospital.  

Feedback from these learners were that they had an eye opening experience. They realised how fortunate they were and how grateful they should be for what they have. For most learners, it was their first time experiencing poverty at that level.
