Al Huda Weekend School
Term 1 Completion Newsletter
Alhamdulillah, AHWS staff is excited to
pursue its program targets in Term 2. Let’s
make it a Great year ahead!
At AHWS,we recognize that every child
comes to school with his/her own ambitions,
unique learning experiences and ideas
which play a major role in his/her
learning.We aspire to develop a productive
complementing relationship with parents in
shaping high morals and learning success of
Together we can help them become
responsible, trustworthy, truthful & diligent
believers active and vibrant to contribute
goodness in the communities they live in.
Term One was Learning and Fun!
In Term 1,students have remarkably learned
Qur’an Tajwid and tafsir with keen interest
and enthusiasm. Memorizing the du’as and
etiquettes via class learning, active audiovisuals, as well as craft seems to give them
a desirable balance of effort and creativity.
As well, they have learned Islamic history
and Seerah giving them a direction, and
meaningful attitude towards life.
Alongside academics, we strive to give
weekend learning a taste of creative,
meaningful fun. Alhamdulillah, staff and
students co-ordinateda successful Bake
Sale. We like to say a hearty
“JazaakAllahukhayrankatheera” to all
parents who contributed whole-heartedly.
Students learnt valuable lessons of team
work, responsibility and goal-orientation in a
believer’s life. Everyone appreciated the
well-organized event. A steady incline to
apply lessons learnt in Seerah is starting to
show in their conversations.
We hope, you as parents will notice and
reinforce these positive Iman- growth signs.

Farewell to Sr. Tayyaba

Enjoying Bake Sale in Cafeteria
“When I started Al-Huda I really didn‟t know
much about the deen. Now I have been going
for a year and a half and it has increased me
in my knowledge and made me a better
person. Al Huda has taught me how to be a
more humble person. It has taught me how
the religion isn‟t just about having the title
Islam or Muslim but to bring action with it.”
~ fromHafsa Farah [Level 04]
“In my perspective I believe that Al Huda is
a very friendly community for students,
parents and teachers. After joining Al Huda it
has come to my attention that I have become
more responsible and organized. Al Huda
allows students to take learning into their
own hands. Their education depends on the
student and how they want to achieve it.
Responsibility is one of the characteristics
which this program has thought me.”
~ fromSalwa Siddiqui [Level 06 ]

How to Help your Child
1. Expectations: Pleasehave realistic expectations
from your child in terms of behavior and learning.
The saying goes ‘kids will be kids’. Expecting your

2. Communication: It is very important that parents
talk to their children about what they learned, what
their thoughts are on what they learned, and how
they will apply it into their lives etc. It is the
teacher’s duty to impart religious values and
positive inspiration but it is in fact crucial that
parents reinforce them at home as well.
