Wembley built the Islamia College Hall in memory of Haji Eshack and Halima Gangraker, the parents of Haji Abdullah Gangraker (‘Mr Wembley’). The hall was completed and officially opened in October 2010, a date that coincided with the centenary celebrations of the arrival of Haji Esack Gangraker in South Africa, and stands as a testimony to the pioneering spirit and sacrifices of our forefathers.
The hall has greatly enhanced the schooling experience of the Islamia College’s learners. It is used for assemblies, guest lectures, seminars and presentations as well as indoor sports like table tennis, chess and volleyball. The beautiful decor and impressive architectural design also make the hall a sought-after venue for private functions, with all profits generated going back into the Islamia College’s coffers.
At Wembley, we believe that our children are indeed our future. If they are to adequately embrace the future, it is imperative that they are equipped with the tools of leadership and the best of education. The Wembley Group of Companies is humbled by the opportunity to be involved in educating our youth, and we view the construction of the Islamia College Hall as an expression of our commitment to the future of our community.
