Community Service

Community Service

Islam teaches us that, as human beings, it is our duty to consider the welfare of all mankind. This is a basic duty that transcends race, colour, beliefs, gender or faith.

TIGHS plays an active role in enhancing social cohesion and promoting civic responsibility. Citizenship is part of our Leadership specialism, which emphasises the importance of civic responsibility, charity and social action. We have a well-developed community programme aimed at promoting community service and mutual understanding amongst pupils and parents. The Tauheedul Baccalaureate rewards students’ commitment to making the world a better place for all to live.

All learners at TIGHS complete community service projects. They undertake 500 hours of community service during their time at the school. They also establish and manage social enterprises and charities autonomously, as part of the school’s curriculum.

It is one of Tauheedul’s driving principles that, through our activities and those of our pupils and their families, the communities in which we are based, and those further afield, should become stronger and more cohesive.

Leadership and Citizenship Week

Introduction

Each year, in order to enhance students’ Moral and Civic Leadership skills, TIGHS hosts an annual Leadership and Citizenship Week. It is part of the school’s enrichment curriculum, designed to promote global humanitarian issues, and involves pupils from Year 7 to Year 10.

Previous Events

Social Enterprise Week

Introduction

Every year at TIGHS, all Year 10 students are challenged to set up their own businesses for one week, with all profits raised from this initiative going to charity.

This idea is called Enterprise Week and its purpose is to help students develop and test business and work-related skills, to increase their awareness about business ethics and enterprise, and boost their financial capabilities. The pupils also build on their knowledge and understanding of being a citizen by enhancing their core and wider skills in literacy, numeracy and IT.

With a focus on social enterprise, as opposed to purely making profit, each year the students use Enterprise Week to develop business ideas and raise money for worthwhile causes at the same time.
