Academic Awards of Excellence for Independent Muslim High Schools

The Islamic Media Agency (IMA) Academic

Awards of Excellence for Independent Muslim High schools in the Western Cape is the only annual Awards to acknowledge the academic achievements of learners from faith-based schools. Our rationale in conceptualizing the awards is to motivate faith-based schools to compete and maintain high academic standards, which will encourage and enable learners to further tertiary education and proactive growth. We hope the Awards could be a galvanizing and strategic platform for the principals, educators, learners, parents, governing bodies and stakeholders to dialogue and develop sustainable frameworks to support the needs of learners, share best practices and resources.
