Alhumdulillah, we have had a busy first term at Karima Weekday School. The new academic year commenced with a Bring and Share Picnic which provided an opportunity for students to reacquaint themselves with their peers and teachers after the long summer break. The event instilled concepts of unity and brotherhood and reminded the children of the barakah of eating together, as the Prophet salalahu alayhu wa salam said: “eat together and mention the Name of Allah over your food, it will be blessed for you”, he also said: “ the food for two suffices for three; and the food for three suffices for four persons” [Bukhari and Muslim].
On Saturday 21st July all the Karima Schools came together for the annual Sports Day celebration. Teachers, parents and volunteers worked countless hours with Primary, Secondary, Weekday and Boys Classes coming together for a fun packed day for all of the students. A team of alimiyyah students were also on hand and leading by example.
"All mankind is from Adam and Eve, there is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab, nor for a non-Arab over an Arab. Neither is the white superior over the black, nor is the black superior over the white -- except by piety and good action.”
Following on from the success of last year’s ‘Disability Awareness’ month, this February’s theme saw a number of activities centred on ‘RESPECT’.
