What’s Cooking?

It has been quite an unpredictable weather lately. Grade 6 students have been doing their own recording by constructing a barometer to find out how the atmospheric pressure is increasing and decreasing. Finally, to give it a rest, what could’ve been better than having a cuisine of one’s own. The grade six art was transformed into a cookery class in which students prepared their own recipes. They baked, cooked, fried, tossed, glazed and prepared toppings. It turned out to be a success. First prize went to Sarya and Mohamed for their cheese pizza, Soummaya was in the second place for her mouth watering apple streusel, and the third place went to Zoha for her hot sizzling vegetable rolls.

Look at these kids!

We recently held our 12th Annual Qur’an Competition for our Junior Kindergarten to Grade 8 students.  It was amazing to see young children memorizing the Allah’s words so well.  Here are a few photos for you.
