Madrasah Newsbits – Parent / Teacher Consultations (PTC) Sunday, 22nd Feb 2015 Appreciation

Haydari Madrasah logo

 

HAYDARI MADRASAH NAIROBI

26th February 2015

Dear Parents,

Salaam Alaikum

I take this opportunity to thank you all for a very successful Parent Teacher Consultation (PTC) that took place on Sunday, 22nd February 2015. It was indeed a pleasure to see all of us working together. I believe that such forums are useful to all the teachers, the parents and most of all, the students.

For the second year now, the PTC was held on a non – madrasah day with the timings running from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. This was to allow parents ample time and a conducive environment in which our childrens’ progress in the Madrasah can be reviewed with the teachers.

I am pleased to note that the overall parent attendance was 70%. However, I wish to express my concern that a good section of Parents could not attend this Consultation, and will request these parents to contact the Madrasah Admin office to setup a mutually convenient time for a consultation with your child’s teachers.

Kindly do not hesitate to give us your suggestions and comments by writing to me on hmn.saaj@gmail.com or see me personally and air these suggestions. This will enable us plan for an even more fruitful Parent Teacher Consultation in the next academic year.

Once again ‘Jazakallah’ for those parents who took the time to meet with their child’s respective teachers and I Pray to the Almighty to reward you amply for He is the best of givers.
