Islamic Values in Practice:
The students are taught the Islamic values through the implementation of strong Islamic Studies curriculum throughout all the year levels. Students are taught to respect and value what is stated in the Qu’ran and to aim for the inspirational conduct of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) in all that they do and achieve. The students are expected to not only live by these values at school, but at all times. As a means of reinforcing the Islamic values, students pray the Zuhur (midday) and the Jumah (Friday) prayers at the school. The older students also fast during the month of Ramadan and all students observe Islamic festivals and holidays.
