What about the risks of COVID-19?
Safety is our top priority. Staff and students at Dar al-Burhan are regularly screened for COVID-19 and are required to follow strict safety guidelines during this pandemic. Our first cohort of students for January 2021 is limited to 15 students, which facilitates exceptional physical distancing in the massive study hall, masjid and recreational spaces. Cleaning and screening protocols are already strictly observed at Masjid Vaughan to ensure everyone's safety.
Will parents be kept up to date on student progress?
Yes, the administration at Dar al-Burhan ensures that the line of communication with parents and guardians is clear, frequent and bilateral. The administration gathers reports on progress from three sources: (1) The Lead Teacher; (2) The Supervisor; and (3) The Student Guidance Counsellor. Meetings and seminars for parents are scheduled throughout the school year.
Will my son be positively influenced by others?
The admissions process at Dar al-Burhan is designed to enrol students who are serious about memorizing the Quran and emulating the one who embodied it ﷺ. Our behaviour policy is designed to ensure that all members of the school work together in a positive and accountable manner. This is why Dar al-Burhan has a full-time on-site Supervisor who oversees, reports and mitigates any behavioural issues. Moreover, a trained Guidance Counsellor regularly meets with students, listens to their experiences and guides them through their journey.
