March holidays were intended to be productive for the boys in Madrasah As-Soabereen (Bishan). This March holidays, the Ustads and Ustazahs organised the Bishan Boys’ Camp, from 21st March to 25th March. The camp aimed to fulfill the objectives of establishing prayers, behaving well and strengthening kinship with one and another.
The boys were separated into 5 groups, namely, the Quran Protectors, Thaharah Legends, Al-Najamun, Allah’s Defenders and Royal IMSSA. By being in groups, the boys were able to maintain good discipline in all their actions. Moreover, it was great to see the boys showing enthusiasm and promptly performing their daily prayers as a jamaath.
Throughout the camp, the boys improved on their ties with their fellow brothers as they encouraged each other to be responsible, kind and helpful. Furthermore, they improved on their interpersonal communication skills as they learnt to speak with their peers politely. The participating boys elicited warmth and helpfulness, specifically during the allocated study time to revise their school work. Furthermore, they were taking initiative and responsibility to ensure that the various venues used for activities were kept clean after usage.
The boys were also engaged in Arabic calligraphy writing.
فَاَنْقَذَكُمْ مِّنْهَا ؕ كَذٰلِكَ يُبَيِّنُ اللّٰهُ لَـكُمْ اٰيٰتِهٖ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَهْتَدُوْنَ
And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together and do not become divided
Surah Al-Imran: Ayat 103
The boys enjoyed the activity very much and did their best in learning and writing Arabic calligraphy. They were awarded for their excellent behaviour and calligraphy works.
The objectives of the camp were met very successfully. Insha Allah, the Ustads and Ustazahs hope to see the boys learn more and achieve better in this world and the hereafter. Ameen.
