Authorities at Mama Khadija Girls Academy have reinstated students who were dismissed and suspended from the school following the fracas that ensued at the school on Monday, Malawi Muslims Website has learnt.
Following the article that appeared on Wednesday February 23, 2012, one of the officials at the school contacted the Malawi Muslims Website to “update the nation with correct facts” of what really transpired at the school.
“Four students were actually dismissed and 15 others suspended,” reported the official (name withheld). “But not all of them left the school although they were still attending classes as they were waiting for their parents to come and pick them. However, after some discussions which included the school management, the community, the Director of Al Barakah Charity Trust and the Chairman of the Al Barakah Council, the decision to dismiss and suspend the students has now been rescinded.”
Asked to comment about the claims of unhealthy food that caused the whole pandemonium, the official confirmed the allegations: “The route cause is (of course about the) poor food, but claims of cases where the food caused some healthy problems…. I think are unfounded, to the best of my knowledge.”
He further reported that the school will open on March 4, 2012 and will be opened unconditionally to all the students who were dismissed or suspended due to the unrully protests.
Mama Khadija Private Girls’ Academy is a state of the art secondary school complex based in Namwera 38-km away from Mangochi, the southern district of Malawi with a capacity of 1000 students. It is the main project of Al-Barakah Charity Trust and is headed by Sheikh Abdullah Noor from Sudan.
May Allah make our sisters benefit from this school. And these sisters of ours should think before taking any action!!
As'salaam 'alaikum. MaashaAllah for this beautiful article and a good return to studies for the muslimahs. The website's outlook is good even though you have made it quite difficult to edit our comments after making a mistake and when you have moved to the second, third, fourth and so on, you have no option but to delete everything up to where the mistake is. It has been less user friendly. Kindly look into that or else many people may shun comment with time because no one wants to transmit broken english even when they have noticed it. Jazakum Allah
Decision making is crucial in administration. Many organizations are reactive rather than being proactive.A little problem overlooked can cause a a big problem. May Help us to succeed in our dealings as Muslims.
We Muslims are proud to have a school that is envisioned to become an academy.We are hopefull that it will really reach a status befitting its name.
However, what has happened is a reflection that the school is not properly institutionalised. There is no way you can just suspend or dismiss a student without folowing good disciplinary procedures and unreasonably. This also happening when you want to dismiss teachers. Natural justice is required.
The School management has also to consider the issue of weeding. When you weed a student, she fails to secure another place in another school thats the end of her educational future.Some of them come there after being selected to government secondary school but opt to go there in order to be in an islamic environment but in the end they regret having made that decision and this will prevent many muslim parents have an interest of sending a student there.
Everthing in life got price tag.
Errors and mistakes coast a great deal be.
Decisions made should be purely based on merits and excuted properly.
However, it's a great news.
I hope we drawn a good lesson out of it!!!!!!!
