Our Superintendent

JamalMr. ElRafih came to Canada in 1976. He attended Crescent Heights High School as an ESL student. He received his Bsc in Applied Mathematics from the University of Calgary. He also received his Master of Education in Educational Leadership from the University of Calgary. He served Almadina as a mathematics teacher, a Vice Principal and Principal.

I would like to start by welcoming each and every one of you to the beginning of a new school year at Almadina. I am eagerly anticipating a successful and rewarding year and I look forward to working with our dedicated board members, staff, and parents to provide an exceptional educational experience for Almadina students. I believe that students are the future. Teaching them important values and helping them make the right decision is a priority. There is nothing more vital than guiding students down the right path and encouraging them to do the right thing because it is the right thing to do.

I believe:
 that, every student has the right to an excellent education and the responsibility to develop their talents and abilities while learning to live peacefully, and respect others.
 that, the learning environment at Almadina, is positive and caring, and thus, supports individual differences and provides all students with the opportunity to take risks in pursuit of excellence.

This year I will:
 strive to build strong relationships between staff, students, families, and the community.
 challenge students to be the best that they can be, help them accept their own and others' strengths and differences and celebrate each other’s successes.
 encourage students to see mistakes not as failures, but as essential parts of the learning process.
 encourage students to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others as well as to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners.

Throughout the school year, we as an educational institution, create opportunities for our families to participate in meetings, celebrations, after-school activities, and special days. Parents and students will receive information about these events through our website www.esl-almadina.com.

As your Superintendent, I believe in establishing strong and robust relationships between home and school as an essential component to ensure that our students’ circle of success is completed. I truly appreciate parents’ advocacy for their children’s success and well-being and for their continuous support of Almadina Language Charter Academy. I look forward to continuing working together as we embark on a new school year.
