The Al-Ghazali Karate Club, has had a busy summer attending competitions all over the country with our JKS England squad members.
In July some of our squad took part in British Karate Federation Nationals competition and won third place Kata.
In August our squad members took part in the British Karate Federation International Cup in Dublin.
In September the squad members took part in British Karate Federation International Open.
The squad is now preparing for the JKS England Championships in November in Nottingham.
Extra Sessions: two more sessions every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-7pm in preparation for the JKS England Karate Championships Competition in November. These sessions are here at Al-Ghazali centre.
The Al-Ghazali Supplementary school welcomed back its students on Saturday 7th September for the new academic year 2019-2020. There was also a warm welcome for over 50 new students to the school.
As well as teaching the main curriculum subjects of Arabic, Islamic studies and Quran, the school has implemented a more interactive extra-curricular activity session for all classes on a weekly basis which enables all students to take part in sports, cultural, singing and arts activities.
Following on from the excellent GCSE and A’Level Arabic results during the summer the school has developed its curriculum further with the introduction of a Pre-GCSE class to ensure students are more confident in sitting the GCSE exam and the A’LEVEL after that.
There was also a warm welcome for the 13 teaching staff and 13 volunteers at the school and this year the school was able to employ four of its dedicated volunteers, Ustatha Manal, Ustatha Ibtihal, Ustatha Najla and Ustatha Heba, who have volunteered at the school for a number of years and have been able to develop their skills and knowledge to join our staff team.
The A’level class students have started doing some voluntary work when they are not being taught mainly helping teachers in the lower level classes as part of our centres volunteer programme.
The first whole school Assembly of the year was held on Saturday 28th September and students from each class were awarded for star of the month award. Students can gain stars or points in class for behaviour, effort, homework, manners and kindness and each month students with most starts or points are awarded with a certificate in front of the whole school.
We also had the first of our monthly teacher’s meetings and monthly volunteer’s meetings. This gives management the opportunity to meet with staff and volunteers on a continual basis to give and receive feedback on school issues.
