The Imam Husain Islamic Centre has, since its inception, had the objective of disseminating the teachings of Islam as taught by the Ahlul Bayt (as). It is our belief that, this dissemination must begin from the youngest age possible to ensure the shaping of the formative years of a child’s life in the teachings of Islam. Hence the formation of the Imam Husain School which began operation in 2011 and continues strong to this date.
Our vision is to ensure that students who attend and complete their Islamic studies are active, conscientious, driven believers who are aware of their responsibilities to Allah (SWT), can read the Holy Quran and are able to matriculate easily into higher forms of Islamic education with ease. In addition, this training will ensure the continued production of aware leaders to secure the future of the community.
We have a keen focus on the holistic development of our children and therefore regular extracurricular activities, camps and excursions are organised for the entire school.
