--About Us--

Taking such a Herculean responsibility was no mean task. As the famous saying goes “charity begins at home”, the founders had to change their way of life to a more Islamic life. This meant acquiring Islamic knowledge, living a simpler life as taught by our Prophet Muhammed (SAW), encouraging good and forbidding evil, etc. Many a sacrifice had to be made and ultimately the OLIVE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL was founded in July 2003, Alhamdulillah.

THE SCHOOL WITH A DIFFERENCE

  • The inspiring force behind the starting of this School is the total dedication and commitment by the founders. The vision of providing authentic Islamic education and information to the children and parents forms the back bone of this Institution.

  • Every child is treated as an individual and we cater to their emotional needs, thus helping them build self-esteem and respect.

  • Teach and train them at a very early age to be mindful of Allah (SWT) and also be aware of the shaitan mardood (the cursed one).

  • The life and teachings of the Prophet Muhammed (SAW) and his Campanions are highlighted in such a way so as to motivate and encourage them to lead an Islamic life style.

  • Zuhr salah is practised by all students from SKG onwards in Jamath, led by the boys in rotation.

  • Arrangements will also be made for Jum’ah salah at the nearest Mosque for the 4th Standard boys.

  • The School uniform conforms to Islamic dress code.

  • Nutrition and hygiene counselling for the children is regularly done.

THE TEACHERS WITH A DIFFERENCE

  • The staff are taught and trained to understand the pristine aspects of Islamic way of life and its values, thereby becoming selfless and service minded.

  • They are trained by special educators to understand the children’s special needs and the way to handle them. They are also taught Tajweed at the School.

  • Each class has a mother-like Class Teacher who caters to the individual child’s emotional needs.

  • The children are taught all subjects by individual Subject Teachers, who are helped and assisted by the respective Class Teacher.

  • Female teachers observe hijab according to the Shariah.

  • Alhamdulillah, the exposure gained in running an international school abroad for eight years has given the co-founder an immense experience and insight in the training of teachers and formulating an Integrated Islamic Curriculum.

  • An important aspect of our mission is the training of teachers suitable for teaching in an  Islamic environment. Every good school has a teachers’ training program, customized  for  its  own  purpose.  Likewise we have one  geared  towards  producing  good  Muslim  teachers. The program includes courses that guide the teachers on how to integrate Islamic values in their profession

O U R   P A S T

  • Started   in  June  2004  with  a  strength  of   30  students  and  12  staff,  with  classes  up to  2nd Std. --  in an independent 3 floor building in a quite residential locality.

O U R   P R E S E N T

  • A strength of approx. 130 students and 22 staff with classes up to 3rd Std. and hoping to climb the ladder  by leaps and bounds.

O U R   F U T U R E   INSHA ALLAH

  • From June 2006 it is proposed that the present building will house only Nursery and JKG;   and  the other classes (SKG to  4th Std) will be housed in  a new building.

  • Alhamdulillah we have already registered 5.66 acres (100 grounds) of land in Chennai for the future construction of  our  own School campus.

  • Land for construction of houses for staff &  interested parents near the future school campus is being finalized

THE FUTURE SCHOOL CAMPUS, INSHAALLAH WOULD CONSIST OF :

  1. Mosque, Islamic Center, Islamic Library;

  2. OLIVE INTERNATIONAL NURSERY & PRIMARY SCHOOL
    (Nursery up to 5th Std)

  3. OLIVE INTERNATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOL
    (6th  up to 10th Std)

  4. OLIVE INTERNATIONAL SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL
    (+1 and +2)

  5. Boys and Girls in separate buildings at all levels except the Nursery.

  6. Residential accommodation for selected staff.

  7. Facilities -- pure drinking water, spacious play ground, green environment, eco-friendly atmosphere, sports activities like athletics,   archery, body building, martial arts etc.

  8. Complete Islamic atmosphere will prevail in the School Campus, InshaAllah. We plan to move to the new Campus InshaAllah after five years.

WHY DO WE NEED AN ISLAMIC SCHOOL   ?

Today’s schools do not guide children’s moral development, but rather allow them to create their own moral structures and hierarchies. Thus, a growing need is reciprocated in every parent’s heart to send their children to an Islamic School to develop honest, confident and dynamic children in quest of knowledge for life long learning and serving, with a passion to excel at home, school and in society.

OLIVE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

Information technology, communication, international business and high profile jobs are  taking the world by storm and have changed our lives. Our  community  can ill afford to be a silent  spectator to these fast growing changes and, if we fail to respond, we will be left far behind. Alhamdulillah, this School is established to bring out the best in your child, to live in a sanctuary where they can learn, worship, play and grow, free of societal corruption, thus providing an ideal learning environment to enrich individual student’s potential and imbibe Islamic values at an early age.
