Introducing our awesome Student Council
Please join us in congratulating students who have accepted a position on the Student Council Team of 2021-2022 ~ Our Voice is Our Strength.
As an integral part of the Student Council, the students will connect the Al-Haadi Community together. They will do this by planning and hosting fun events, supporting important causes, and striving to make a difference in Student life! They will represent their class, share their ideas, collaborate on projects, voice their opinions and lead by example.
InshaAllah, the 1st 2021-2022 Student Council meeting will be held this Sunday, Nov. 7th at 3 pm; zoom meeting room info has been shared with the Student Council team.
Many thanks to Sister Shelina Dhalla, Director of Student Services, Sister Fatma Khalfan, and Brother Ali Manji, and all teachers for their efforts to nominate and encourage students and establish this year’s Student Council.
We look forward to a great year ahead!
