Asalaamu Alaikum Dear Parents and Students,
Below is a short 7 minute video announcing the decision in relation to proposed changes to the School Day and School Year. This decision follows the consultation process that has taken place with parents, staff and students. I would like to thank all parents that attended the Parent Consultation Sessions and those people that have completed the surveys.
The decision that has been made has followed the process of shura.
Ibne- ʿAbbās (raḍiyallāhu ʿanhuma) narrates that when this verse was revealed:
(And consult them in affairs), then Rasullullah (ṣallallāhu ʿalayhi wa sallam) said: Behold! Allah and His Messenger are not in need of consultation. However, Allah has made this a source of blessing for my Ummah. So, anyone of my Ummah who consults others, he remains on the straight path, and anyone who gives up consultation he remains in distress. (Baihaqi)
