QatarDebate Centre, a highly reputable organization sponsored by Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, Chairperson of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development, established QatarDebate Academy in November 2009, in order to focus on developing and encouraging the debate and dialogue skills in the region and the world, through establishing cooperation with educational and public institutions, nominating ambassadors for the Academy and supporting the formation of debate clubs in the Arab world.

A successful school stationery drive was undertaken by the girls attending Islamia College and these learners were ably assisted by their educators. The beneficiary schools were:

  • Belthorne Primary in Rylands Extension 
  • Athwood Primary in Hanover Park 
  • An informal settlement in Lansdowne.

The above mentioned schools were contacted to ascertain their stationery needs prior to embarking on the drive.

I have been a student at Islamia College since grade R and I honestly would not have it any other way. The principals, teachers and students of our beloved school have taught me so much, both academically and Islamically and we have truly become family. Family grows with you and always stays in your heart, so Islamia College and all the memorable moments will without a doubt remain in my

heart forever. Shakeelah Amier (Head Girl)

 

Thirteen years of schooling at Islamia has come to an end and it is with a tinge of sadness that I anticipate the myriad of challenges to be faced outside the controlled environment of Islamia. Aside from the anxiety of looming adulthood, I am comfortable that I am in an enabling position to meet those challenges through the sound education that the school has provided me. Islamia has nurtured me in all aspects pertaining to my growth and development and I now find myself enriched academically, spiritually and morally. My salient advice to my cohorts would be to work hard to obtain the objectives you set for yourself. Let us be the flag-bearers of this great institution and keep the name of Islamia College very high, insha-Allah. Hafiz M. Saalig Kafaar (Head Boy)

 

Reflecting upon my years at school I have concluded that a stage of my life has come to an end. I cherish the memories I experienced at my beloved Islamia College. The school has played a pivotal role in my holistic development and I will forever be grateful for the opportunities granted to me to enhance my potential and enrich my life. Life is a journey and the destination is our goal. We are so often caught up in our destination that we forget to appreciate the journey, especially the goodness of the people we meet along the way. Shukran Islamia for a wonderful journey, I really enjoyed the ride. Hafiz Sohail Khan (Deputy Head boy)

 

Al-hamdulillah, I have formed numerous meaningful relationships, created many great memories and learnt countless lessons that I will always cherish. Islamia has instilled in us the value of doing everything with excellence or at least trying our best to do so. This enables us to leave school with quality education as well as the opportunity to become balanced Muslims who are ready to take on the realities of a challenging world. Proud to be Muslim and honoured to be Islamian. Naeema Omar

 

It is difficult to summarise my last 13 years at Islamia College as it was very eventful. I have made countless mistakes and had my embarrassing moments, but I would do it all over again. The experience I have gained is priceless and I believe I am fully prepared for the challenges I will face ahead. It may be sad that my school career is ending but as Dr Seuss said; “Don’tcry because it is over, smile because it happened.” Mamdouh Mohamed (Deputy Headboy)

My twelve-year journey at Islamia College has indeed been a most memorable one. Besides the knowledge I have acquired and the friendships I have built, Islamia has instilled in me fundamental beliefs to be implemented and profound values that I will cherish forever. I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to all my teachers for always caring, nurturing and guiding me; thus making me the person I am today. Nazneen Adam (Deputy Head Girl)

All praise is due to Allah Who has granted me innumerable favours and the opportunity to attend Islamia College. If I should recollect my finest moments at Islamia it would without doubt be the opportunity that Islamia offered me to complete my hifz in the holy city of Madinah. One of the key things I have learnt over the years at Islamia is that the world needs not only intelligent and well educated people, but also spiritual, courageous and compassionate people. It is vitally important how we act in this world, because that will determine the type of memory we are going to leave behind. Hafiz Mugammad Cassiem (Offered Deloitte bursary towards CA)

I have been at Islamia for 10 years and Islamia has taught me the virtues of being a good muslim as well as a stout individual. Many students have a teacher that they go to for help but I also have my motivating principal with the many teachers who are responsible for my achievements as they constantly push me to my limit. They have shown tremendous faith in me and because of this I strive for greatness. They expect nothing but the best from all their students and because of this we are encouraged to achieve our goals. At Islamia, I have made cherished friends and many memories that I will never forget. Mohammed Fayaz Kimmie
