We would like to thank everyone who for took the time to join us for a wonderful evening of socializing and good food at the CC Social on 16th August 2013.  

We aim to support good causes and on this occasion in addition to supporting the City Circle, we were supporting the building of the new West London Islamic Centre in Ealing (WLIC).  

The WLIC is a unique project in West London that will serve the community for generations to come Insha Allah. Those who wish to contribute to WLIC project, you can do so online here: http://www.wlicnewmasjid.org/donate.php

IMI Clarification

Recent articles in The Guardian (7 Aug 2013) and The Huffington Post (15 Aug 2013) state that the campaign for the Inclusive Mosque Initiative (IMI) is being supported by City Circle. However, we would like to clarify that City Circle has not offered its support for this initiative and both publications have now amended their articles.

For over a decade, the City Circle has provided a space for communities to openly discuss and debate the issues of the day. Every Friday since 1999, we have organised gatherings that act as forums for intellectual discourse, spiritual nourishment and community activity. In October, we will be holding a discussion on 'making mosques inclusive' where the Inclusive Mosque Initiative (IMI) will be given an opportunity, along with two other panellists, to discuss and debate this issue and answer any questions from the audience. 

We are a debating platform rather than a campaigning one. The invitation of any panellist to this platform is for the purposes of debate and discussion rather than the explicit endorsement of any particular campaign. We remain committed to being an open and independent platform where all parts of our community may come together in a spirit of respectful discussion to deliberate over all issues of concern, controversial or otherwise.

CCSS student gets accepted to Oxford University

At City Circle Saturday School we are proud of all our students but none more so than Hibba Mazhary who recently completed her A'level exams and achieved four A*s. Although we are sad to see Hibba leave Saturday School this year, we would like to wish her all the best in the next chapter of her life, studying Geography at Oxford university. This year Hibba was also awarded 'Student of the year', out of 1300 students, at Holland Park School. When asked about her experience at City Circle Saturday School, Hibba said:

"For me, Saturday School has consistently been a source of both academic support and cultural enrichment . My teachers were always eager to offer their invaluable experience, from helping me with my subjects to setting up mock Oxbridge interviews for the university application process."

We are also proud of all our dedicated volunteer teachers at City Circle Saturday School who continue to do incredible work with the youth in the community. We believe that what makes City Circle Saturday School so unique is that not only do we aim to address educational disadvantage by offering help, guidance and positive role models to children from disadvantaged backgrounds, but academically gifted students such as Hibba find the experience of attending the school equally beneficial.

The City Circle currently run a supplementary schools at the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre and at Harrow Mosque. We also run after school GCSE tuition classes for Maths and Science at the Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre.

Saturday School Students Raise £5,000 For A School in Pakistan

On Friday 7th June City Circle Saturday School (CCSS) organised a fundraising dinner for The Citizens’ Foundation. Thank you to everyone who attended and we hope you enjoyed the evening. With your generous donations, pledges and ticket sales we have managed to raise just over £5,000 for the Riyadh Group Campus school near Lahore, Pakistan. CCSS has been fundraising for the Riyadh Group Campus since 2011 and hope to continue supporting the school.

 

The purpose of this project is not just to support a fantastic charity providing education to underprivileged children in Pakistan but also to encourage the young students at CCSS to take part in efforts to help those less fortunate than themselves. The evening was hosted by CCSS students from last year who are now all teaching at the school. There was also an opportunity for the younger students to participate and students from year 5 and year 6 read out poems they had written themselves. This was followed by an entertaining auction hosted by two of the teachers. It was heart warming not just to see everyone at City Circle Saturday School come together for this project but also the generous support of everyone who attended the dinner and others who remain committed to this project.

 

We still have some way to go to reach our target and if you were unable to attend the event but would still like to make a donation, please go to our fundraising page http://www.justgiving.com/CCSaturdaySchool-TCF.
