Salaamun Alaykum.

Welcome to Az-Zahraa Islamic Academy. We are about to embark into a new school year, and into a new learning journey as we implement the new Redesigned BC Curriculum. We are more than certain that with your help and continuous support, we will be able to continue making our school the best place for your children.

Our staff and administration are committed to helping each and every student work to their full potential. Our school strives in placing a high emphasis on balanced literacy, numeracy, inquiry-based learning, and outdoor education, as well as attending to the needs of students who are experiencing difficulties in certain subject areas and for students who are achieving above grade levels.

The school is committed to helping students become responsible for their own actions. Our code of conduct is meant to help them reflect upon their own actions and draw conclusions and lessons for the future. A variety of progressive discipline strategies are in place and will be applicable as required.

Nothing can be more effective in motivating the students and sustaining success in the school than celebrating the students’ accomplishments. Celebrating success in the school system regularly breeds more success. It invites every student, teacher, and parent to join the team to celebrate improvements in academics, character, and leadership.

As you may be aware, in addition to the BC curriculum, AZIA offers rich Islamic Studies and Qur’anic programs. Alongside Sister Sukaina Jaffer as the Academy’s administrators, we are more than willing to do all it takes to make our school an outstanding institution, where our students are nurtured through mind, body, and soul. Such a mission will not be possible to accomplish without the full support and cooperation of our parent body and community at large. Should you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact us at the school office.

We look forward to serving you and your children.

Sincerely Yours in Learning,

Oscar Pozzolo
