Association of Muslim Schools South Africa
To all Principals

At our last Principals forum meeting, we suggested the creation of an exam paper bank on the AMS website. Basheer Noorgat and I have had some discussion around this matter and would like to invite schools to submit exam papers and marking memos.

This first call is for June 2011 Exam Papers and Marking Memos for all subjects from Grade 4 to 12.

In January 2012, we will call for all November 2011 papers.

In order to facilitate the filing, searching and retrieving of papers on the data base, we have to standardise the way we all save documents. You will appreciate the difficulty we will experience if some people save a file as Natural Science while others call it NS. To this end we would like you save the documents using the File Naming Convention listed below as well as the subject descriptions given at the end of this document.

TEACHER: How old were you on your last birthday?
TEACHER: How old will you be on your next birthday?
TEACHER: That's impossible.
STUDENT: No, it isn't, Teacher. I'm eight today.
TEACHER: George, go to the map and find North America.
GEORGE: Here it is!
TEACHER: Correct. Now, class, who discovered America?
CLASS: George!
TEACHER: Willy, name one important thing we have today that we didn't
have ten years ago.
SUBSTITUTE TEACHER: Are you chewing gum?
BILLY: No, I'm Billy Anderson.
TEACHER: Alfred, how can one person make so many stupid mistakes in
one day?
ALFRED: I get up early.

There was once a man who was going to travel to a dangerous land.  He goes to the house of a man, well known for his honesty.  He knocks the door and tells him: " I'm giving you $1440 to keep with you as I am travelling to a dangerous place.  When I get back, I only want $17 back." The honest man stood their perplexed but agreed.

The next day, the traveller comes back to the honest man's house and asks him for $17.  The honest man tells him that he forgot and that he had spent it all.  The traveller forgave him since he knew that this man is honest enough to give it back later.


"The conference was excellent. Plenty of take home points. Really inspiring!"

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.

The need was felt to establish an organization to advise Muslim Schools and help them in their development at all levels.


To provide a range of quality services which will enable our schools to deliver an Islamically based-education of the highest standard and quality.
