Al-Hadi Bags the Top Position
The 4th annual Islamic Arts Festival took place on the 11th and 12th of November 2017. Co-sponsored by The Islamic Arts Society & Rice University's Boniuk Institute for Religious Tolerance, the Islamic Arts Festival is the largest and oldest of its kind in North America.
With over 10,000 ft.² of art space, over 5000 art pieces and over 50 artists visiting from all over North America, the festival brought together children and adults of all faiths, religions and cultures for two days of fun, festivity and learning. More than 7000 visitors attended the festival this year. The purpose of this event was to celebrate Islamic culture and promote the positive image of the community among Muslims and non-Muslims.
Along with four other Islamic schools, Al-Hadi School participated in the inter-school art competition. Al-Hadi high school students enrolled in the Islamic Visual Arts Heritage course worked hard to create the beautiful artwork which was exhibited on Sunday. Besides, receiving a lot of positive feedback and appreciation, this was a good opportunity to promote the school.
One parent from Everest Academy said, “I will consider enrolling my child at Al-Hadi in high school.” She also suggested that we promote Al-Hadi to the eighth grade students at Everest.
Al-Hadi School stood first place at the competition for the second time in a row. Our students got an excellent opportunity to meet with various artists, view their work and learn a lot about contemporary Islamic art.
Al-Hadi congratulates the winners of Islamic Art Festival and highly appreciate the efforts Sr. Siddiqua puts in helping students create the masterpieces that win laurels for the school.
Al-Hadi Lions ROARRRRRR!!!
AL-Hadi Lions Pull a Dramatic Victory
On November 15th 2017, Al-Hadi Lions brought home the 1st Place Trophy for basketball.
Al-Hadi Elementary and Middle School students participated in the annual DUA Basketball Scrimmage, hosted by Everest Academy. Students from the following schools participated in the competition:
- Darul-Arqam (DUA North)
- Houston Quran Academy (HQA)
- ILM Academy
- Everest Academy
- Al-Hadi School
Each school fielded four teams, two boys and two girls. Thus there were a total of twenty teams. Al-Hadi teams played very well and gave a tough time to their opponents. They displayed fantastic teamwork and won a number of matches. In the end, the Boys B team and Girls A and B teams were placed in the fourth place.
Al-Hadi Boys A team played an extremely intense and challenging final game against DUA North, a worthy opponent. In the beginning it was a close back to back point. The opponents came from behind and led by four points. Qasim Syed’s 3 pointer closed the gap and bounced Al- Hadi Lions back in the game. However, it was in the last 10 seconds that Imran Kader, with a neat pass from Qasim, made the winning shot that led Al-Hadi to victory. The victory was only possible because of the strong offensive and defensive support provided by Ali Rizvi, Ahmed Abdullah, Ali Mohsin, Raza Saiyed and Murtaza Jaffry throughout the game.
Over all the entire boys squad displayed brilliance on the court and fantastic sportsmanship. Special thanks to our coaches Br. Nizar and Sr. Anjum for their dedication and hard work.
Al-Hadi Lions ROARRRRRRRR!!!
Thursday, September 21st, 2017, at HISD Private Nonprofit Fall Consultation Meeting, Al-Hadi School was put in the “Spotlight”.
Dr. Bokhari was invited to share her experiences and her views about school leadership, school success and student engagement. She also spoke about how effective principals ensure that their schools allow both teachers and children to put learning at the center of their daily activities and thereby increase student success.
A central part of being a great leader is cultivating leadership in others and that’s what Dr. Bokhari firmly believes in. When principals and teachers share leadership, teachers’ working relationships with one another are stronger and student achievement is higher.
We are extremely proud of Dr. Bokhari for bringing Al-Hadi in the Spotlight.
