Hot Lunch Volunteer Update

Asalamoalaikum Abraar Parents,

The PST would like to share with you a situation that happened on Friday, December 19th 2014.

There are a total of 5 parents who rotate each week for the Hot Lunch Program
Three volunteers are needed every hot lunch day to distribute Pizza/Fatayer to students.

Out of the 5 parents who have committed for the Hot Lunch Program,  2 were ill and 2 had left for vacation.  A PST mother was able to rush to the school from work to help out  and Sister Naida was also able to arrange for a second volunteer at the last minute.

Keeping in mind that there are 400 students and probably 800 parents, it is very sad that no more than 5 people have even agreed to volunteer.

The PST at this time is not prepared to carry out activities in the school. even the hot lunch program is very hard to execute with such a small team.

After the above mentioned episode, the PST has been rethinking the hot lunch program for next year.
We came very close to shutting it down this term, but for the sake of the children, we are giving it another try.

This message is a request to all parents to please step up and help us out. It is just 30 minutes of your time once per week.

Please click on the link below and let us know what date you can come.

Hot Lunch Program (January - March 2015 ) Date Change for Form submission

Assalaamu Alaykum. 


Due to the delay in announcing the Hot Lunch program the submission date has been changed to be Monday, January 12th 2015


The Hot Lunch Program at Abraar School is run by parent volunteers on The Parents Support Team (PST).  Its aim is to provide students with a nice hot lunch that they can enjoy with their friends, as well as to raise funds for fun school projects and events. 

In order to make things more efficient for all involved, PST sends out a lunch order form every 3 months for the whole school year.

Please note : Pizza Vendor for this year  is 1for1 Pizza(2900 Woodroffe Ave.)  and Fatayer from Al-Noor Bakery.

The Hot Lunch team is time constraint with limited volunteers and follows deadlines strictly. Absolutely NO late orders will be processed.
