Islamic Studies

The Islamic Education Department has two full time teachers and one part-time teacher. Dr Ayman Mousa tutor of native speaking students and Mr Mustafa Ahmad, Quran recitation skills tutor. The subject leader, Miss Sara Alikhan, teaches all non-native speaking students starting from Year 7 up to Year 12. 

Students attend lessons in different classrooms according to their curriculum. Our Arab students follow the Ministry of Education syllabus and non-Arab students also follow the new Ministry of Education syllabus which was introduced in January 2017, the textbooks were translated from Arabic in to English by the Ministry for the non-Arab Muslim students. 

There are prayer rooms for males and females on the premises which are accessible to students, staff and visitors. 

Our mission is to raise the students’ awareness of Islam for all year groups from Year 7 to Year 12, following the Ministry of Education’s syllabus. The knowledge and understanding is gained through a variety of skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, independent learning, innovation and use of technology, in addition to application of practices, moralities and faith in daily life to reflect identity through living Islam as a way of life. 

In addition, our mission is to strengthen students’ Quran skills, practise recitation of Quranic verses, learning then applying rules of Tajweed, understanding meaning of the verses covered and finally to start proper memorisation of verses from the Quran (those surahs are assigned by the Ministry of Education). This takes place in independent Quran sessions which is taught, tracked and evaluated by qualified Quran teachers.
