About Us

The curriculum of the school, which includes Islamic Studies, is recognized by the Department of Education.  The introduction of such a curriculum is essential for preparing young minds, from the early stages of their development, so that they will see Islam as their source of inspiration and guidance in all aspects of their lives.

Islamic practices e.g. Salaah, Qur'aan Recitation and understanding, discussion on important issues on Islamic perspectives are incorporated into the Time Table with the different learning areas, e.g. language studies, sciences, art, economics, etc.
