Classroom disruption for 31/01/2015

posted 30 Jan 2015, 10:16 by BSIS Admin

Change of Classrooms

For Saturday 31/01/2015 the classes for BSIS are moved to an adjacent block in the school called Salisbury Block. This is due to disruption caused by a couple of events in the school (Children's and Baby market and Table Tennis tournament) on that day.

Kindly drop the children in good time as there may be traffic and parking issues in and around the school due to the above events.

The Salisbury Block is right next to the current building where our regular classes take place. Kindly consult the map below to navigate to new building. However there will also be someone to redirect students coming to old classrooms.

This change of classrooms is only for this week and classes will resume at the regular place from next week.

Welcoming New Academic Year 2014-15

posted 23 Sep 2014, 00:59 by BSIS Admin

MESSAGE  FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Dear Parents,

Assalamu Alaikum Wa’rahmatullahi Wa Bara’ka’thuhu

Alhamdulillah, all thanks and praise be to Allah (SWT) for giving us another term, another year and another opportunity to serve the community through this Saturday school. We welcome you and your children whole heartedly to our school. We know that you are sharing with us the responsibility of raising your children as strong and pious Muslims. We appreciate the trust and with Allah’s help will do our best to fulfil this responsibility. 

Education is a joint responsibility of home and school, and we work closely with parents to achieve the best for the children. At BSIS we aspire to instil love of Islam in children. We believe once love is there, learning and practising our beautiful religion will be easy and enjoyable. We hope the same passion will be shared by the parents at home.

At BSIS children learn Arabic and Islamic Studies with interesting and fun activities. They are also encouraged to memorise verses and short surahs from Quran. However their first main target will be to learn Salah. This requires significant help from parents to help them revise and practice regularly at home.

Children will be given homeschool diaries where you can see their homework and send notes for the teachers.

The school  day usually finishes with an assembly that gives opportunity for the whole school to come together and pray Zuhar Salah in Jamaat. Afterwards children share their achievements and work with everybody. We give ‘Muslim of the Week’  award to someone from each class to encourage and appreciate good work or behaviour. Parents are welcome to attend the assembly sessions. Special class assemblies are also planned for coming Saturdays featuring presentations by students. Please look out for the invitations.

Kindly ensure that children arrive on time and have a pen, pencil and notebook with them.

Please join us in the prayer for their success in this world and hereafter. May Allah help us deliver the best education and tarbiyyah to our children. Ameen.   


BSIS Principal.
