1) What if my daughter falls ill or injures herself?
At Jamea Al Kauthar we have a medical room where all ill patients are seen to. If they require attention and medication, the full time residential staff will observe them and if the need be then the patients will be referred to the G.P or in severe cases the hospital. If the doctors in hospital feel her condition is severe then she will be admitted. Don’t worry though we have a routine for Apas to make daily visits to the patient to see her and how she is doing.
2) Where will my daughter do her washing?
We have laundry room and your daughter will be shown on her interview day where that is and how it works.
3) What if my daughter runs out of toiletries?
There is a tuck shop in Jamea Al Kauthar not only do we sell food in there but we also sell all the essential items needed on a daily basis.
4) How many years does it take to finish the Aalimah course?
Initially the course is five years, however this will depend on how well your daughter’s Urdu language is and also her effort outside class. Girls who cannot read or write Urdu will be doing an extra year to learn Urdu first. However we encourage all our students to sit in the Urdu class for a year and improve their Urdu language which makes their first year in Aalimah class much easier and comfortable for them. A lot of effort needs to be put in by the students throughout the course so she can go up to the next class.
5) What if my daughter fails her end of year examinations?
If your daughter fails her end of year examinations then she will have to repeat the whole year again.
6) What secular education does your college offer?
7) How often can my daughter ring home?
As often as she wishes. Providing it’s in her free time however if there is a queue then she must understand that other students also need to use the phone as well.
8) Who does my daughter go to if she has a problem?
Usually we tell the students to go to their Dar Apa, but she is allowed to go to whoever she feels comfortable with.
9) How many girls will be in her room?
Depending on the size of the room. Some rooms are larger than others so that’s why they will have more students in it. Some rooms are smaller so they may only have 3-4 students in it. However all rooms are cosy and homely so there shouldn’t be a problem with the size of the room.
10) Is my daughter allowed to write to me?
Yes she is allowed to write letters. She can then post it in the letterbox, which is outside the ladies office and is emptied everyday. All the incoming mail for the students will be given at the ladies office and given out to the students during lunch break.
11) Where can my daughter keep her money safe?
We have a student bank where she can keep any extra money and she can take it out at the opening times.
12) How often is my daughter allowed to go home?
For the first month to help your daughter settle in, she can go home every two weeks on Fridays after school at 5:00 p.m., providing she returns to Jamea on Sunday before 5:00 p.m. After the first month she will be allowed home on Friday after school at 5:00 p.m until Sunday 5:00 p.m every 4th weekend.
We try to keep a balance between meeting the needs of individual families and maintaining a strong and stable community in the school.
13) Is my daughter allowed visitors.
