Assalamu alaykum and Ramadan Kareem to our dear parents and students,
We would like to inform you that due to the observance of Ramadan, there will be adjustments to the school schedule from Thursday, March 23rd until April 12th.
Please note that the school day will start at 9:05 am and end at 2:10 pm (at the Elizabeth campus) and at 2:35 pm (at the Parafield campus). We kindly request parents make the necessary arrangements to accommodate these changes.
For parents who drop off or pick up their children privately, we request that you drop off your children by 9 am and pick them up by 2:35 pm. The staff would appreciate your cooperation as we need extra time to prepare for Iftar with our families. Please note that no supervision will be provided for your children beyond these times.
School Bus Service during Ramadan
We would also like to remind parents whose children use the school bus service to be present at their designated Zones or homes at least 1 hour prior to their usual drop-off times. We urge you to use the Live 360 App to track the bus as any delay at a Zone can cause issues for other parents and students who are already fasting after a full day of school.
School Canteen during Ramadan
Lastly, we would like to inform you that the canteen will be closed for the month of Ramadan. We advise parents with very young children who are not fasting to provide lunch for their children.
Ramadan is a month of spiritual reflection, improvement, and increased devotion and worship. May this month bring peace, blessings, and happiness to all of our families.
Jazakum Allah khayran.
