M.E.I.S. was officially opened in July 1996 under the name Ahlan Wa Sahlan Pre-Primary School with only two classes. This school led to the formation of M.E.I.S. which welcomed the first batch of grade ones in 1998. Gradually, with the introduction of one new grade each year, a primary school was started catering for learners from Chatsworth, Shallcross, Mobeni Heights and the Isipingo area.

Presently we have 421 learners ranging from nursery to grade 6. The growth of the school has resulted in a need for expansion. Hence, the property adjacent to the school was purchased. The new building consists of a basement, which has been converted into a Jamaat Khana (Prayer Hall) cum hall for learners and an ablution block and a stock room, and the main floor has seven toilets, two classrooms, a bokstore, a computer room and a library.

M.E.I.S. now has a total of 17 classrooms, 23 toilets, a fully equipped computer room, a library resource centre, ablution block, 2 Jamaat Khanas, a staff room and an admin block. Through the generosity of a sponsor, we also have a netball and volleyball court which is utilized by learners on a daily bais.
