20 Syawal & 13 Zulkaedah 1442H
This year, the primary boys had a jam-packed June schedule with fun virtual lessons and activities almost every weekday afternoon! They had craft sessions, learnt basic and intermediate Arabic, had tajweed lessons and to top it off, two very useful workshops organized by the Ustazahs.
All the boys were involved in the first workshop held on 1st June 2021. PowerPoint skills are essential and the session was certainly beneficial. It was a nice introduction or headstart for the younger, Lower Primary boys who might not have had much experience using it before. Throughout the session, everyone was engaged and even had many questions to ask! The Upper Primary boys who have used it for lessons or school projects before, learnt some new tricks to further impress their teachers in future.
The Upper Primary boys attended the second workshop on 24th June 2021. Canva is a relatively newer but very useful tool for students these days and the hope is to introduce it to them early so they can explore further and become experts themselves! The possibilities are almost endless with Canva and the boys learnt the basics including creating an account for themselves first and foremost, followed by how to design posters and making simple presentations. Alhamdulillah, the boys were eager to learn and great group to teach. Both workshops are considered beginner level or introductory sessions, so perhaps more workshops can be planned for the December holidays too!
