INTRODUCTION
At Seemab Memorial Institute, it is our objective to provide healthy
and rewarding learning environment for Muslims students. The school
will meet on Saturday morning, between September and June. If
summed up, it amounts to about thirty two days of classes in a year.
Within this time we are committed to do the best to provide a sound
Islamic education.
Muslim children growing in Trinidad are facing diverse challenges and
conflicting pressures at schools and in friend circles. They are
constantly influenced by mainstream youth culture. It is difficult to
isolate them from these influences and it is painful to let them sway
into the mainstream. Excessive consumerism, peer pressure, media
culture, Internet, and technology confuse the youngsters mind about
their ideal objective in life. We admit parents are the main source to
instill moral and values in their children. However, parents can do
only so much. We admit Islamic schools have a responsibility to instill
Islamic ideologies in the youths. Again, Islamic schools can do only
so much. It is tough job to help them balance their Islamic identity
with their Trinidadian identity.
We do not want to stop trying. We hope Seemab Memorial Institute
will be able to help Muslim students appreciate and understand Islam
its rich heritage, principles, values, teachings. We hope the School
will be able to provide stepping stones for the youngsters so that they
understand and accept Islam as the chosen way of their lives. Our
success will be measured years later if these youths grow up and
say: thank you, you made a difference in my life!

We are working towards that day. This guide is designed to help


parents, teachers and students on what to expect from the school
and what the school expects from them.
Our request to the parents please invest in your child. They are
precious!
