SUPPORT Smiles n’ Stuff
Smiles n stuff is where Al Noor sells all the wonderful things made by the children in our vocational unit. Buy our goods and you buy a smile from the students – they love to see people enjoy what they make.
Our vocational training unit includes our excellent bakery and our wood design, printing and fashion technology workshops. The quality of the work it produces is 1st rate. You can find out more about what we do and the fantastic ways vocational training benefits the students if you click on VOCATIONAL TRAINING.

Our products include quality handcrafted wooden items, such as book ends, pencil holders, and magazine racks. T-shirts, aprons and tote bags are produced by our screen printing and sewing departments. Beautiful embroidered handbags and small cases are the pride of our needlework students. The delicious cookies, muffins, and cakes that leave our bakery every day compete with any in-store bakery counter. Each child contributes to the items on sale and contributes as much, or as little as he or she is able, to the finished article. The students learn work-related skills and take great pride in the end results.

We are always looking for outlets for the goods our students produce. There are many ways you can help us with this. Here are some ideas…
Smiles n’ Stuff staff love to organise pop- up bazaars to show off the students’ handiwork. If you can give us a time and a place, we would love to visit your school or workplace. We can bring a range of hand made goods and delicious goodies from our bakery.
Bake sales are always popular – could your organise a one-off treat for your team or place a weekly or monthly order from our bakery.
School fairs, festive bazaars, and open air markets always draw the crowds. If you are involved in hosting or organising any event where we could set up a stall to showcase our wares, we would love to hear from you.
We produce corporate gifts for companies. Our students would be delighted to print t-shirts or custom-make other items you select for your company.
Come and visit our shop to see first -hand the quality of the handiwork. Treat yourself or buy a gift for a friend. You will find large choice of items, including attractive accessories and clothing, small desktop accessories and baked goods.
Our shop is open from 8am – 2pm and 3pm – 6pm Saturdays to Thursdays. We have a coffee machine and a seating area outside the shop – we would be happy to welcome you and your friends for a coffee and a chat.
Help spread awareness of Smiles n’ Stuff – the more people who know about us, the more outlets we will find to showcase and sell the products our students love to make.
We welcome volunteers at Smiles n’ Stuff –please let us know if you have any ideas or practical help you can offer.
