            QURAN COORDINATOR’S ANNUAL REPORT
             FOR THE ACADEMIC YEAR 2008-2009.



In the name of the Almighty, the Beneficient, the Merciful;

Salamun A'laikum,

By the grace of Almighty Allah, yet another Madrasah year is coming
to an end. In early June 2008, I took take up the role of Quran
Coordinator’s as Brother Amjad Datoo had to leave for his personal
reasons.

Challenges/ Opportunities:

   1. Having joined the Madrasah in June 2008, I was faced with
      various issues such as online reporting, helping teachers with
      online marks entry and so on. Alhamdullillah with the help of the
      entire EC, I overcame all the challenges.

   2. Very few teachers had committed to come back. Out of the 64
      teachers needed, only 25-30 teachers had confirmed. With little
      success from returning teachers, I began an extensive search of
      teachers. Alhamdullillah by the start of the academic year, I was
      able to recruit almost 60 teachers needed and was able to
      secure remaining 4-5 teachers needed in the first two weeks of
      the 2008-09 academic year.

   3. In-spite of all the challenges recruiting new teachers, it is
      satisfying to hear parents feedback on the progress they have
      witnessed in their children this academic year. This is primarily
      the result of getting more qualified and experienced teachers.
      Inshallah efforts are being made to recruit more such teachers in
      order to improve the quality of students.

   4. Increased number of weaker students in the classroom coupled
      with inadequate parent and student commitment to the Islamic
      education. The biggest concern is the overall quality of students.
      One hour of Quranic studies per week is not enough to improve
      the level of recitation of the students, let alone the
      comprehension and application of the Quranic teachings in their
      daily lives. In addition, there is a growing number of parents
________________________________________________________________________
ISSC Centre Madrasah – AGM 2009                                  8/8
      failing to attend parents teacher interviews. Parents need to be
      more involved in helping their children complete their
      homeworks as well as help them with the recitation of Quran at
      home on a regular basis. Parents also need to attend
      Parent/teacher meetings so they may understand the areas of
      strengths and weaknesses of their children.

   5. With more weaker students in Transition classes, additional
      teachers were recruited to reduce the student to teacher ratio
      from 5:1 to 2:1 which resulted in promoting six students by the
      end of first semester. We are now looking for additional teachers
      to help students who are behind in class. A budget of $5,000.00
      has been set aside to hire qualified private tutors after Madrasah
      time to help these students. Our goal is to reduce the students in
      transition class by half by the end of this year.

   6. Introduction of Mandatory Teachers Training classes. Due to
      time constraints, only one workshop was organized but the goal
      is to have at-least one workshop every month. There is need to
      implement more such classes in order to help teachers deal with
      students especially those students who have specials needs.

My humble request to all concerned that the above mentioned
challenges and opportunities should betaken further than the
AGM and specific timelines and goals should be established to
ensure that these
recommendations form part of an action plan before the
commencement of the next academic year.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Almighty for giving
me this opportunity to serve in His name. I also wish to convey my
thanks to the executive committee for their support.

All this would not have been possible without the help of my wife
Sajeda Dhalla - assistant Qurán coordinator. She was key in helping
me recruit teachers particularly on the sister’s side. Having her on my
side was particularly helpful as it made easier for lady teachers to
come forward more often as they would feel more comfortable with
her. She would often go at great length in extending her help in all
matters arising.

Last but not least, I would like to thank all the teachers who form the
backbone of the Madrasah and without whom this institution would not
run. It is indeed a challenging task for which your tireless efforts go a
long way. The Holy Prophet (PBUH) said:




________________________________________________________________________
ISSC Centre Madrasah – AGM 2009                                  9/9
“Verily, what will continue to reach a believer, after his death,
from amongst his actions and good deeds are: the knowledge
which he taught and spread, the righteous child whom he left
behind, and the Holy script which he delivered as heritage
(transcribed, and made available).”

I would also like to apologize for any shortcomings on my part and for
having hurt anyone intentionally or unintentionally.


Sincerely,

    PRESENTATION OF DINYAT COORDINATOR’S REPORT.

In the name of Allah, the most beneficent, merciful and ever-forgiving.
Salaamun Alaikum,

This madrasah year has been an year of development and progress in the
area of services and facilities provided to the students and the parents of our
madrasah.

The teachers have been using the website to communicate with their
students, the site also keeps the parents updated with all the activities.
We have finally gone paperless report cards. While on this issue, there has
been an apathy on behalf of some parents when it comes to discuss their
children’s poor grades at mid-term. Although our teachers made enough
efforts to approach the parents, the results have been disappointing.

Although we arranged two teachers’ workshops, the presence was not as
expected due to time constraints and transportation issues. Hopefully, we
will insist on their presence by arranging at convenient times.

As promised to you last year, we have introduced Grade 10 or also known as
Youth Forum, so as to attract not only our grade 9 graduated students but
also other youths in ages from 16 to 23 years in age. We started with 8
students and now the numbers reach 20 every Sunday. We have different
lecturers discussing various socio-religious issues affecting our community’s
youth and society in general.

We have managed to get our grade 9 dinyat lessons on the web, but, our
expectations to have grades 7 and 8 have been slowed down due to shortage
of research volunteers to support our lead editor Shabbir Alibhai. Hopefully,
we will try to complete this project during the holidays.

Finally, my sincere thanks go to all our teachers who have not only
contributed to the well-being of our madrasah but supported us in the
progress of our Centre Madrasah. May Allah s.w.t. reward them for their
hard efforts.

With dua and salaams,
Shafic Kara

      PRESENTATION OF RESOURCE COMMITTEE CHAIR’S REPORT.

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent and the Most Merciful.

Salaamun Alaikum,

Centre Madrasah took several steps, this year, in ensuring that the needs of its teachers were met
adequately.

Orientation
Teachers attended the September teacher orientation where they received their class assignments
and teaching folders that contained important instructions for the year, including detailed
guidelines on a myriad of issues including madrasah policies, how to keep up-to-date records,
assess regularly, deal with conflict situations and exhibit professionalism. The coordinators
briefed the teachers on what to expect in the new year especially in regard to the digitalization of
the report cards.

Resources & Technological Purchases
Centre Madrasah’s Resource Centre (RC) is actively being used by the teachers. A number of
teachers are making use of the Smartboard by booking the resource centre to hold class lessons
and project presentations. All three Smartboards are in use almost every Sunday.

Several new Islamic resource items, including Islamic story books, workbooks, posters, Salat
books and Arabic Alphabet letter boards and flashcards have been added to the resource library.
The new resource items have proved to be very popular with our teachers. Teachers are also
making use of different types of DVDS to enhance their lessons. Some of the resources were
purchased and others were generously donated by various donors.

The RC aims to meet the teachers' needs by providing ongoing support and supplying new
resource items as they are developed in the world.

Professional Advancement Workshops
From the beginning of the academic year, teachers have been able to participate in professional
development workshops held at the Centre Madrasah. Two workshops were held for our teachers,
whereby professional instructors engaged the teachers in ways to motivate the students, managing
classroom dynamics as well as methods for developing creative teaching strategies.

Teachers Appreciation
Centre Madrasah took steps to appreciate the teachers with an Eid luncheon meeting that was
held in October to discuss different matters. In April, we had a breakfast appreciation event for
the teachers. At the end of the madrasah year, all the teachers will be rewarded with a small gift
token.

In conclusion, thank you to all the teachers and coordinators for their dedication and hard work.
Inshallah, we look forward to working together to achieve even more progress.

ISSC Centre Madrasah – AGM 2009                                  12/12
Resolution from the Executive Committee



Resolution 1

   Pursuant to the resolution pertaining to the fees adopted at the AGM held on April 15,
   2007 in which it was then resolved that family based charges would gradually be
   reduced and ultimately eliminated and in order to ensure that costs are borne more
   equitably by all parents, Madrasah fee is therefore required to be charged on “Per
   Child Basis”.

   In execution thereof, the Executive Committee of the Centre Madrasah hereby
   propose that effective new Madrasah year, commencing from September 2009, the
   applicable fee of $180.00 per child to apply, while completely eliminating the family
   based charge which was reduced to $75.00 mark in 2008 from $125 in the year
   before.


Resolution 2

   In order to make necessary adjustments due to inflation to the current fee structure,
   the Executive Committee also proposes that effective 2010 onwards, fees should be
   subjected to an increase, at the rate in compliance with the annual rise in CPI as
   established and reported by Bank of Canada. Currently, such a rate is at 2% mark.
   The increase would be rounded off to the nearest unit/dollar.

Treasurer’s Report
For the Year ending December 31 2008

Salamun Alaikum,

This report construes the enclosed financial statements and the notes thereto for the year ending
December 31 2008. As part of the report you may also find the operating budget for the year 2010
for your perusal and necessary approval.

Revenues
During the year 243 families and 422 students benefited from the quality religious education
offered by ISSC. The over all student enrollments in 2008 in comparison to the year before
dropped by an aggregate of 7.86%. During the year of reporting, 39 families enrolled 58 new
students to become part of the Madrasah.
Other major revenue sources constituted donations and dues recovered in lieu of parental
volunteering.

Expenditure
We have been able to control the spending for the year by executing both direct as well as indirect
savings. Overall, the expenditures for the year were contained and limited to below the budgeted
thresholds whilst providing the best possible value for the money.

Capital Investments/Web-Based Applications
ISSC has not incurred any capital expenditure, during the 2008 financial reporting period.
In an effort to perceive the vision plan, we are however committed to fully automate the
registration and report card modular applications over the web. A consistent amount of progress
is being achieved towards improvisation of the modules and yet more strides would still be made
in that regard. It is encouraging to note that, 36% of the parents availed the online registration
service, which is up by 15% from the preceding year. ISSC has successfully launched the online
report card accessibility. Currently, we are working with the developer on necessary
enhancements and advancements on both the modules. An annual service contact has being
initiated with the developer, in order to address the on-going need for slight changes and
modifications along side with the need to ensure an uninterrupted performance.

Net Operating Results
The net operating results reflect a modest savings of $ 2,854.72 in the reporting period.

Financial Budget – 2010
Proposed budget for the year 2010 forms an integral part of this report. For the purpose, we have
primarily based on historic financial data and have made necessary adjustments to sufficiently
provide for and to accommodate for specific spending to derive potential objectives. Please refer
to the notes there under for pertinent information and explanation.

Acknowledgement
Although, I have applied all necessary measures ensuring and safeguarding the interest of ISSC
and its member body at all times, however I seek forgiveness for an unintentional offence that I
might have caused to anyone.

ISSC highly values and appreciates the selfless devotion and assistance of all the volunteers, who
have always been there when needed especially during the registration time. I also take this
opportunity to thank Br. Masoom Asghar for his consistent assistance on regular basis ensuring
accurate financial record keeping.

Wasalaam,
Nazir Muraj

Notes to the Budget
1) Based possible relocation to JCC, ISSC projects around 7% increase in students enrollments in 2009-2010, up to 450 students.
2) In compliance with the resolution, the fee structure has been based on per student ($180 per child) and with this
   effect previously applied family based charges would henceforth be eliminated.
3) In order to accommodate for the inflationary effects and need for spendings in system automation and special Quran class,
   it has become imperative to marginally increase the fee
5) An approved budgetted amount of $ 20,000.00 (2008/2009) which remains unused so far is being hereby re-allocated to the year
2010.
