E-Learning Opportunity

AssalamoAlaikom HDIS Families,

March break is over but kids are still at home, they will not be returning to school on the 5th of April but according to Premier Doug Ford, a school closure will be extended indefinitely amid a COVID-19 outbreak.

This is tough, we want everyone to be safe and secure but we also want our children to keep on learning. This is the time of the year when student’s learning is supposed to be at the maximum and the final term could conclude their learning in June.

Parents play an important role in their child’s learning and it is still possible with the combined efforts of parents and teachers.

We want them to finish the academic year successfully fulfilling all academic requirements. We do not want them to sit in from of the T.V or computers the whole day or play in their gadgets. This will stop them from moving forward in their achieving with loss of precious time and they will end up losing their prior knowledge if not connected wisely. We can use the technology and gadgets to educate them by connecting them with their classroom teachers every day as normal school settings with reduced hours and effective teaching.

Hamilton Downtown Islamic School has come up with a plan of starting E-Teaching for the benefit of the students. However, this will include teachers to work very hard and create an online portal to reach all the students but teachers of HDIS are ready to meet the challenges. A teacher’s true happiness lies in the student’s success.

Imagine three months without proper learning than two more months of summer holidays and the loss of your child’s productivity !! this is the time that we work together and continue to support our children learning by encouraging them to attend every day like a school day by being in a virtual classroom with all other fellows, taking lessons, doing discussions getting homework and be productive each day. The other option is doing nothing for five days plus weekends for the remainder of the year and this continues for indefinite time!!

We are lucky that we have a team of dedicated teachers who are willing to consider E-Teaching options, we are blessed to have these skills at HDIS, kindly consider taking benefit from them. This is an opportunity and not all primary schools are thinking to offer E-Teaching right now but we can start it as soon as we get parent’s consent. This is in the best interest of your child, kindly inform the school as soon as possible that you are willing to support and then we will be able to announce the start date. We need people to support their children learning and appreciate our teacher’s dedication to make this happen.

Please contact/email school for the consent to start the mutual E-Learning of your child today!

My name is Nailah  Faisal, I would like to introduce myself to the community. I am newly appointed Principal of the Hamilton Downtown Islamic School having M.Sc., B.SC., B.ED degree with OCT certification and in good standing Alhumdollilah.

I believe that every child is unique: children need an equal opportunity to explore according to their style to unfold the process of learning. This connects me strongly to my world view I quote from the Quran:, “Each work according to his/her manner , But Allah is most knowing of who is best guided in a way”(Quran 17;48). The various learning styles skin colour and different types of character reflect wisdom and power of the creator. School should be inviting, accepting a diverse place where students can laugh at their mistakes while learning and celebrating achievements together.

I aspire to serve the community by being leader in my learning community through building a network in collaboration with peers, colleagues, parents/ guardians and other educational partners to promote the values in learning. I plan to engage in an ongoing professional practice to nurture kids with wisdom and truth.

My goal is to prepare good Muslims who are well aware of Islamic values, equip them with high level of ministry recognized education and prepare them for the fast paced outside world!
