Cape Madaaris Conference -5th August 2017
The Cape Madaaris Conference was a tremendous success. The conference was organized by Madrasah Tul Madina and hosted by Islamia College , Lansdowne.More than 260 Muallims and Muallimaat , Teachers and principals attended the one -day conference.The presentations by the speakers were relevant and timely for teachers. The Conference theme was ‘Effective teamwork for Efficient teaching’ .
Why was Such A Conference Important
Madrasah education is fast becoming an extinct aspect of Muslim upbringing. Many Muslim parents don’t see and realize the importance of madrasah education. In the hierachy of importance for the parents it occupies 4 or 5 place. First place secular schooling – assignments, school projects, extra tuition. Second place sports. Third place – family functions, community events, cultural events.
We want to bring the importance of MADRASAH EDUCATION again to the fore. Our children, especially high school students are struggling to keep their Islamic identity.
On the other hand we want to raise the standard of madrasah education, enhance the classroom environment and improve the organizational capability and infrastructure.
