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!

JazakAllah
