Warm greetings from the Faculty and Staff of Al Salam Private School & Nursery An education is a basic right of every child. A quality education is an open door to a better life, enabling one to reach their full potential. It gives way to a personal sense of achievement, boosts self confidence and allows for a comfortable standard of living and financial security.

By giving a child a good education, you are producing a well adjusted, accomplished and confident adult. By depriving a child a good education, you deny a basic right of that individual.

Sue Johnston Headmistress

In my years as an educator, I have cherished and respected the various backgrounds of my students and have commemorated many children for their achievements, both educational and personal. All children are different and learn and excel in different ways and at different rates—this should be celebrated and enjoyed. Students develop their academic, linguistic and social skills Students develop a set of values and ethics, which will increase their moral sensitivity and concern for life with special emphases on the Our aim is to guide every child in developing physical and mental growth, personal independence, enhancing linguistic abilities and developing concepts of honesty, equality, understanding, respect and humanity thought processes. The school’s priority is to make sure that the following goals are being implemented throughout the year: Students personality is being developed through encouraging qualities that they will need for success in their lives and future careers such as self-confidence, self esteem, intellectual curiosity, leadership, creative thinking, the ability to analyze and make humane and wise decisions
