 Introduction

We thank and praise Allah Ta’ala for His infinite Grace and Mercy showered upon us. Peace and blessings upon Muhammad (s.a.w), the Messenger of Allah.

PREAMBLE

Our approach to sport is line with our belief that education involves the whole person and that every child has the potential to excel. Achievement in one area so often leads to success in other areas of life.

Indeed the main thrust on school sport should always be primarily focussed on DEVELOPMENT and to this end we need to arrange comprehensive and challenging programmes which are focused, thereby enabling our learners to move a gear up!

The vision of LMS is to provide a base for the youth to unite for the pure love and enjoyment of sport and to provide opportunities for talented players to develop their sporting abilities, thus giving rise to more Muslim sporting icons that can emerge as role models for our youth to emulate.

Hadith: “A strong Muslim is better than a weak Muslim”.

Indeed a healthy body inspires a healthy mind.
