Thank you so much for a day of informative and engaging assemblies. Imran can build fantastic relationships with staff and students. Already I feel student attitudes are changing and they have a greater understanding the Muslim faith. They are already asking when Imran will return!!

Head of RE, St Patrick's High School, Salford.

Good morning Imran,

It was a truly fantastic day and I've had lots of excellent comments. Thanks very much, hopefully we can bring you in for Y7 & 8 in the future. I've attached the feedback from last week now that I've managed to get it typed up. I'm going to make a display of it. Fabulous, it's the most important work at the moment I think and great that you are doing it.

 Head of RE, Nidderdale High School

Imran's assemblies were highly informative and effective in addressing the misconceptions students might have developed about Islam and Muslims through largely negative media reporting. Imran himself is highly professional and approachable; a real pleasure to work with. I will definitely look to booking him for a return visit.

Mark Richardson, Curriculum Leader RE and Head of Teaching & Learning, Shavington Academy, Crewe.

I really enjoyed the day and the staff and students that I spoke to really appreciated it. I've already told the head that we should look to do more work with you in the future and he was in agreement.
