Friday Girls School - School Information

The Friday Girl’s School at the PIC aims to provide the girl’s of our community with Islamic knowledge that will help them thrive as both Muslims and Canadians. Equipping our girl’s with this knowledge is important because our Ummah requires leaders both male and female. As demonstrated by the honoured wives of the Prophet Muhammed (S.A.W) and the Sahabiya (RA), Islamic knowledge in the hands of educated women can make a huge impact on society.

●    Terbiyah is the main focus of the curriculum

Code of Conduct
In 2000, the provincial government enacted the Safe Schools Act. This Act was put in place to increase safety, respect, and responsibility in Ontario schools. The Friday Girl’s School at the PIC adheres to and follows the Safe School’s Act to the letter. This requires that all school members:

  • Respect and obey all applicable federal, provincial, and municipal laws
  • Demonstrate honesty and integrity
  • Respect differences in people and in their ideas and opinions
  • Treat one another with dignity and respect at all times, especially in disagreement
  • Respect and treat others fairly, regardless of their race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, or disability
  • Respect the rights of others
  • Show proper care for school property and the property of others
  • Take appropriate measures to help those in need
  • Respect persons who are in a position of authority
  • Respect the need of others to work in an environment of learning and teaching

In addition to the Safe Schools Act, the Friday Girl’s School strictly adheres to the Islamic principles governing behaviour. We expect all members of the school to follow the guidelines set by the Quran and Sunnah of our beloved Prophet (S.A.W). Failure to follow both the stipulations of the Safe Schools Act and our religious guidelines will result in disciplinary action taken by the office.

Bullying, as described by the provincial government of Ontario is “aggressive behaviour that is typically repeated over time. It is meant to cause harm, fear or distress or create a negative environment at school for another person. Bullying occurs in a situation where there is a real or perceived power imbalance.”

The Friday Girl’s School is a safe environment that takes a firm, zero-tolerance stance on bullying. Students and staff are expected to treat each other with respect and kindness, as outlined by both the Safe Schools Act and the principles of the Quran and Sunnah. Any student found bullying others will have disciplinary action taken against them which may or may not result in suspension and/or expulsion.

We encourage staff, parents, and students to recognize and utilize the four Rs of bullying:

  1.  Recognize or discern what is and is not bullying
  2.  Refuse to accept bullying behaviour
  3.  Report by speaking to a trusted adult or accessing Kids Help Phone
  4.  Restore or repair relationships

Safety and Security
The safety and security of all staff and students at the Friday Girl’s School is of the utmost importance to us. In order to maintain the wellbeing of all at the school, certain measures have been put in place that staff, students, and visitors must adhere to:

All visitors, regardless of if they are the parent/guardian of a student, must report to the school office before making contact with any classroom.

  • Visitors are required to sign-in and sign-out before and after each visit
  • Students are not permitted to leave school grounds under any circumstance unless authorized by the office and under the supervision of a know parent/guardian
  • Staff are not permitted under any circumstance to take students off school grounds
  •  Volunteers must register at the school office prior to taking up duties in classrooms
  • Parents must inform the school office prior to taking their children home earlier for any reason
  • Students and staff must be trained and educated on how to deal with high-risk scenarios such as fire drills, lockdowns, etc.

Safe Arrival Programs (S.A.Ps)
Call: (905) 426-7887 Ext 7
To ensure that students arrive at the Friday Girl’s School safely, S.A.Ps have been put in place. Parents are requested to inform the school if their child will be arriving late or will be absent for that school day. Students who are absent for more than a week will be contacted by the office to ensure their safety.

Regular school updates will be posted to the website regarding events such as cancellations. All parents should check the school website if unsure about the open/closed status of the Friday Girl’s School due to weather conditions.

Attendance Policy
Classes run from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm every Friday

Punctuality is a respected and required trait not only in society but also in Islam. Regular attendance to classes are beneficial to students as continuous learning helps develop their cognitive skills. Interruptions in this schedule can cause problems, as students will not only fall behind in class but miss out on raw learning provided to them by staff. 

The staff at the Friday Girl’s School are not required to assure student presence in class. It is the responsibility of both the parents and students to take the measures necessary for punctual student attendance. It is also the responsibility of the student to catch up on work missed.

Students not in class by 5:55 pm are considered late.

Students who arrive late are required to go to the office first and receive a late slip before going to class. Students who will be absent for the day are required (undertaken by their parent/guardian) to inform the office.
