Walk to School Week

On 11th  July 2016 to 22 July 2016, children from Shakhsiyah School London have been involved in the Haringey Borough Council Walk to School Week which has enabled the children to understand the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. Both parents and children have been walking to school by parking their cars outside the red five minute walk zone. The really dedicated children came by bus and stopped  outside the ten minute walk zone.

The Bus number 11 display helped children remember the importance of using our legs to take us everywhere and help reduce pollution!

TFL Presentation

Recently year 6 had the opportunity to view presentation delivered by a member of the Transport for London.
It was very interesting and eye opening as to how important it is to be considerate and aware of our and others health and safety, while we travel and use the various transport services. It was also very interesting to know how Transport for London operates and how they can help people by the use of an oyster card. As people can be traced by tracking their journey, when and whenever you touch your oyster card!

Most importantly, year 6 were taught how they can stay safe whilst they travel using any of the services. As many people often get injured by being reckless when they travel. Other than that, years 6 were told how they could save potentially £5000-£7000 over five years if they use an oyster card!!! That’s a lot of money! One important message the children took from this presentation is that travelling can be fun and enjoyable, if we choose to do in correct manner. By which we can keep ourselves and others safe. It is an important responsibility upon all of us and it requires one to appreciate oneself and others around us.

We hope you always have a safe journey!

Dental Day!

Our dental day took place on Wednesday 7th October 2015 with Oral Hygiene Specialist, Kim Powell from NHS Whittington Hospital.
Kim conducted a parents workshop in the morning and then spent the rest of the day with doing workshops with the children from Early Years through to Key Stage 2.
The workshops emphasised on the need for sound oral hygiene practices such as brushing your teeth at least twice a day, visiting the dentist regularly and leaving off treats until after dinner. Alhamdulillaah, a vast majority of our children had healthy teeth and only a few were identified as needing referrals to the dentist. We look forward to having Kim visit the school again in the near future.

This year’s annual presentation was a wonderful reflection of the love our children have for Islam, together with it taking place in local venues, it was a memorable evening for staff, friends, family and of course the children.The audience saw and listened to delightful presentations by the children aged between three years old and eleven years old, and were amazed by their knowledge and confidence in the early history of Islam. The children were role models for all of us in the modern age, masha Allah.
We would like to say Jazak Allah khair to all those who took part in bringing the various elements together so harmoniously on the night. Jazak Allah khairun to the mums who prepared and sold the delicious food. They worked so hard in leading up to the day as well as staying right to the end to help pack up everything. Also, a big Jazak Allah khair to the artistic mums who put together the beautiful props and backdrop for the stage. I’m sure all would agree the stage was looking amazing due to the dedication of talented mums. We’d also like to say a big Jazak Allah khair to brother Mohsin who helped with the technical side of the day from the filming to dealing with lighting and sound.
