About AMS South Africa

The Association of Muslim Schools (AMS) was launched in March 1989 at the Lockhat Islamia School (Al Falaah College) in Durban. Principals and members of the Board of Governors of Habibiya Islamic College, Lockhat Islamia College, Roshnee Muslim School, As­-Salaam, Lenasia Muslim School and Nur-ul-Islam School came together to form this association.
