What People Say About Us

  • Graham John Burton
    I want to congratulate Dr Musharraf and the production team for the success of the Invitation. From a Christian point of view it is very interesting to listen to Muslims trying to understand and practice their faith in a secular society.

    A truly special place. You feel the warmth as soon as you enter the front doors. The children are happy and I have seen them grow emotionally, physically and educationally over the years. The staff are very competent and caring professionals who treat each child as if they were their own.

    My children greatly benefited from the Fig Tree School. Radio Dawn is the only station for me it keeps me updated on community news. My boys enjoy being a part of Karimia Football Club.  Thank you Karimia and all those who work and volunteer there.

    I’m new to Islam and I’ve had a lot of support from sisters in the community and from attending the Marhaba monthly event at Bobbersmill Community Centre.

    Fig Tree ensures that good values are instilled in the kids whilst their character is being moulded. We pray that this helps the kids of the school mature into global citizens who make the world proud.
