December 2018

I am proud to announce that we are celebrating Prophet Muhammad’s birthday at the City of Derby Academy today.  I would like say a huge thank you to Mohammed Danyaal Hussian and the year 11 helpers who have hand delivered roses and cards to all tutor groups.  In addition, Danyaal, supported by As-Siraat and Muhammad Burhaan Khandia have donated the gifts and shared a video to all students spreading Prophet Mohammad’s message of peace and love.
