We at BeneKids believe that the early impressions children have of Islam is crucial in forming their faith foundation. To foster the spirit of critical engagement with their faith, questioning by the children is actively encouraged so they can come to a realisation of Islam's wisdom themselves.
Our program reflects this with fun activities implemented with love and a focus on being a good citizen, making good friends, seeing faith and its traditions as relevant and important for today, and enjoying being Muslim. We are committed to having a low teacher-student ratio in the interests of good connections between students and teachers, and all topics are taught in age-appropriate and engaging ways, with an emphasis on their relevance to the students' lives in a modern, Australian context.
BeneKids wait list application is temporarily closed and we will not be adding any new students in Term 1 and Term 2 of 2020.
In the past few years we have been operating at maximum capacity and have only been able to provide a limited amount of spots for students on the waitlist. Registering on our waitlist is not a guarantee that your child/children will be offered a position at BeneKids. Some families have been waiting for more than several years and we still have more than 180 students on the waitlists.
We have been inundated with requests from families and the numbers on our waitlist keeps growing. As we are not able to expand our program it would not be fair to keep adding students onto our waitlist, knowing that it is unlikely that we can offer them a space.
We will be reviewing our waitlist and enrolment process to ensure that those on our list can be provided with an alternative program.
If there are any spots available and/or once we are able to add more students to our waitlist process we will announce it on our social media platform. Please continue to check our website, social media and newsletter regarding future available spots.
Jazakallah Kheir for your patience and understanding.
