• Bilingual & Islamic Education

        • Benefits of our Islamic School setting


          We believe that for children to be good Muslims they have to grow up in an environment that models the ‘Sunnah’ in Islamic values and practices.


          This means that parents can:


          • have peace of mind knowing that their children are safe, being taught by practising Muslim staff who are role models

          • be satisfied and observe that Islamic practices (such as praying, fasting, dressing Islamically, and reciting Quran) are part of daily life for students and staff and incorporated into the curriculum in a holistic manner

          • rest assured that their children are encouraged to practice their religion freely and comfortably

          • see that school is reinforcing positive practices and behaviors for home and family life, supporting their child-rearing efforts


          From learning within an Islamic environment:


          • Children’s Islamic identity can be established, nurtured, and strengthened

          • There is a sense of comfort, acceptance and belonging; where students feel they are part of the school ‘family’ of people who share their beliefs and practices.

          • Children are protected from exposure to negative influences and haraam practices are avoided

          • Islamic knowledge and morals are applied in everyday life

          • Educational materials are carefully screened and sensitively created

          • Where children are around other Muslim friends, these can be a source of positive peer influence.

          • taught by an International Muslim Staff team, students develop a sense of belonging to an international community where all are equal

          • students can be ambassadors of their faith and heritage within the global community



          Advantages of a Bilingual Education


          Research from the Center for Applied Linguistics has shown that learning a second language at an early age:

          • Has a positive effect on intellectual growth and enriches and enhances a child's mental development

          • Leaves students with more flexibility in thinking, greater sensitivity to language, and a better ear for listening

          • Improves a child's understanding of his/her native language

          • Gives a child the ability to communicate with people s/he would otherwise not have the chance to know

          • Opens the door to other cultures and helps a child understand and appreciate people from other countries

          • Gives a student a head start in language requirements for college

          • Increases job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.
