Iqra has excellent staff members who are professional as well as dedicated. They set high standards for our students and help them achieve their goals. Our Elementary staff is highly experienced and members of the Ontario College of Teachers and our Montessori staff are certified as well.
The Iqra newsletter is a communication between the school and the parents. It is created by the Grade 8 students working as a team and consists of the editors, proof readers, reporters, writers, typist and graphic designers. The students take responsibility for the entire task being carried on in a professional way. This teaches them to be responsible, meet deadlines and develop leadership qualities.
The Pizza and Hot lunch is an ongoing fund raising programme throughout the year.
Iqra provides opportunities to students to enhance student abilities and interest. This helps them express themselves where their interest lies and teaches them working as a team. Some of the extracurricular activities our students participate in are the Hatch Coding programmes, the Taek won do club, organizing the Annual Science Fair, participating in the Regional Spelling Bee Competition, Robotics Programme, Organizing fund raising for sponsoring Orphan Children in different parts of the world, writing school scripts where students perform on stage for their Annual Play Day.

Joining the Iqra school family has had a positive impact on my kids and I. The standards of education and moral values impacted in my children have given them a sense of confidence, identity and drive. The teachers are very passionate and always available to give positive criticisms to ensure constant growth. We are so blessed to be part of the family. (Monsurah Salami)
