School of excellence

Dr Mogamad Waheeb Gasant, board member of Darul Arqam Islamic High School

Thank you for the corrected statement on your Plainsman website.

Please note that Darul Arqam Islamic High School has a history of academic excellence having achieved 100% pass rate twice in the last five years.

The school has a phenomenal history of community involvement projects that should be noted.

Despite being an independent school it’s meagre school fees pales in comparison to most independent schools and even many public high schools

I am thankful that you intend doing a feature article on the school since it is a beacon in the community and should be applauded for its excellent academic record and community involvement in challenging times alghamdulilah (all praise is due to God).

In economically depressed areas like Mitchell’s Plain where it is situated and draws its school population from, it is a shining light and an example to the greater community about what can be achieved with hard work, community participation and above all faith in the Almighty.
