To the staff and children of Paradise,
Thank you so much for inviting the children and me to your outstanding presentation [12th July '11]! We all thoroughly enjoyed it.
Kind thoughts from us all at Pentland SchoolPat, Pentland School
Throughout the school year, officers have attended to deliver both assemblies and talks to individual classes, to raise awareness of safety issues and the role of the police.
We have always found the school to be very welcoming. Staff are very receptive to new ideas. The children are always very well behaved and polite.
We have formed a good working relationship with the school and hope this will continue in the coming years.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank both staff and pupils for inviting us to the presentation [on 12th July '11] at the mosque. We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Firstly I would like to thank you and the school for taking part in this worthy initiative [Box of Hope]. The building is well set out with plenty of space for the children and excellent security provisions.
Upon my visit I mentioned to the teachers who greeted me, that the children are an absolute merit to to the school. I was pleasantly surprised at the discipline and conduct of every child that I came across. I cannot praise the school enough for the work it has done with the pupils.
From my observations and involvement that I have had with Paradise I can say that the organisation is very efficient. It clearly demonstrates moral values and care for the wider community at its core.Mohammed Kola, Amanah Manager, HSBC Bank Plc
Thank you for taking me on for a week’s placement just before the holidays. I really enjoyed working alongside the pleasant staff and experiencing the teachings of Paradise Primary School. I value and respect the way you teach your students and the way you bring them up with respect. I thoroughly enjoyed playing with the students and getting to know all of the children in Reception class. They all put a smile on my face and I will remember the great time I had.
Working in Paradise made me feel more confident to continue and pursue a career in either childcare or primary teaching. I hope maybe we can hear from each other soon and come for more placement work to help out or even come for a friendly casual visit. Thank you so much for everything and please forgive me if I have done or saidanything unknowingly.ZM, Work Experience Student, Huddersfield New College
I just wanted to thank you for the very warm hospitality I received at the school. Allhumdullillah the teachers were very welcoming and the pupils were bright and well behaved. I wish I could have stayed for longer than the allocated hour. The pupils had so many questions about what it was like to be a writer and I would have liked to answer them all. Judging from the interest shown I think the Paradise School has quite a few budding authors in the making … InshAllah.Sufiya Ahmed, Zahra Books
Jazakallah khair to you and all the Paradise team for a very inspirational evening. We benefited greatly and will get working on this straight away.Your school and the website look great. Credit to you and your staff.Muhammad Hanif, New Horizon Community School (Leeds)
In terms of feedback, and I assure you I’m not just saying this to be nice, mashallah you guys are some of the most hospitable brothers and sisters I’ve come across. Being from london, I see most people from further north being hospitable in comparison to what we have here, but your guys really go the extra mile, both this time and the last. Lukman…well, what can I say, I have nothing but praise for him, mashallah he’s a great mind and looked after me very well, and treated me to lunch which was lovely too.Working with schools like yours makes this project all the more worth it, I make du’aa that Allah continues to bless your school and community.Saqib Awan, KSM
Alhamdulillah the assembly was actually an enjoyable experience for me. I didn’t really get time to have a look round, but was impressed by the kids – they seemed very attentive and enthusiastic and parents/ teachers must be doing a good job in instilling in them good akhlaq alhamdulillah. Inshaallah their time at the school serves to be a good foundation for their lives ahead as muslim citizens. Loved the anthem, it pulled at the heart strings and i’d definitely encourage you guys to put a recording on the website, if not youtube!Dr Habiba, Dewsbury District Hospital
Alhamdulillah – JazakAllah khayr again for having us, it was an absolute pleasure! My colleagues and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
We felt the school was very well facilitated and were amazed by the brilliant use of space – the way the school has fitted in so comfortably, it’s as though the building was purposely constructed for Paradise!
Something that grabbed all of our attention, was that each classroom, each corridor, each wall was filled with fascinating displays and remarkable project work. Most are pieced together with great effort and creativity – it is clear from these alone that Paradise is a learning empire, nurturing great minds with a great future. An absolutely fantastic learning environment!
The teachers were very professional and hospitable. We received an admirably warm welcome and were hosted brilliantly throughout the day; please do extend our thanks to them.
The teachers’ positive attitude and sincere commitment towards Paradise was very apparent today through their hardwork and dedication. Upon observation, we could see their genuine love, passion and pride for Paradise is being invested directly into the school and children, who appear to receive high quality education.
The pupils were very well mannered and an absolute pleasure to work with. We experienced some great talent today, and noticed a high standard of abilities and skillsets amongst many. We were very impressed with the level of knowledge the children had, on both an Islamic and Secular platform.RI, Games to Gaza
