Wa Alaykum Assalam Rumaisa and Shahmah. Rumaisa it's you in the picture, if I am right :)
The annual program of Bazm e Gul Jeddah is on 21st (next Thursday). Maybe you'll be allowed to attend it. Please ask your parents and say my salam to them. I don't come online very often.
Shahamah, yes I am the same person. Nice to hear you are a reader of Sathee too. I will make my page Insha Allah, but it will probably be another week before I get the time to do so.

Assalam-o-alaekum Maryem! are you Maryem binte Zafar from Jeddah who write in monthly sathee? moreover, make your screen.. i wanna add you there!
More info for Mehwish: At PISJ-ES, the IGCSE program is of 3 years, so you have to study grades 9, 10 and 11 in order to complete your IGCSE. At Al Waha, it is of two years, 9 and 10 (training for IGCSE starts from 8, though). Most of the other schools in Jeddah have a two year program, too. I got 5 A-stars, 4 A's and 1 B when I did my IGCSE, which is considered quite good. I don't mean to blow my own trumpet :) , I am just mentioning this to tell you that the teachers really work hard and every student is given equal attention.
As far as the studies in lower grades are concerned, they,too, are very good. My sister, Sarah, who's currently in grade 2, changed 2 schools before she finally ended up in Al Waha. The studies in the other schools were nothing compared to Al Waha- frankly speaking.

Mehwish, Assalamu Alaykum. Great to hear you've shifted here. Maybe we can even meet. About Al Waha, well I will say that I have studied in 3 other schools and 1 madrassa before I joined Al Waha, and this year (after completing my IGCSE) I have had to join a different college. Of all these institutions, Al Waha was the best. There are a few schools in Jeddah which have a good IGCSE program (equal to Matric or O Level) and these include Waha, Wadi, Minarat and PISJ-ES. However, if you consider the overall atmosphere and environment, Al Waha's is incomparable.
Hi maryam actually i have shifted to jeddah and i am interested to take admission in al waha school , so it would be very kind of u if u'll let me know about its studies , how's the environment of the school etc !!
Jazak Allah everybody for your comments and appreciation. Bushra, do you study in Al Falah DPS?
