Child Protection

The following couplet summarises the effect a parent has upon his/her child: The parent is like a mirror, the reflection it gives, the child adopts. If the reflection is good, the child is good. If the reflection is bad, the child is bad. The first and foremost desire of parents is to prepare their child for a bright and successful future.

Why Us? Read it Yourself!

  • With a need for an Islam-compliant environment and quality education I arrived at Olive Secondary School in its early days of the year 2008. Olive provided me with the opportunity to study two sets of curriculum, allowing me to develop spiritually/morally and academically. Always being offered a personal concern and effort from the hardworking staff and school members is what has made this truly unique for me. And after 7 years, our journey at Olive comes to an end as students, as we leave with the best years of our life and the most precious of memories. Teaching more than just books, Olive is an outstanding place to learn.
