WHY DO WE NEED AN ISLAMIC SCHOOL?
Today’s schools do not guide children’s moral development, but rather allow them to create their own moral structures and hierarchies. Thus, a growing need is reciprocated in every parent’s heart to send their children to an Islamic School, to develop honest, confident and dynamic children in quest of knowledge for lifelong learning and serving with passion to excel at home, school and in society.
Information technology, communication, international business and high profile jobs are taking the world by storm and have changed our lives. Our community can ill afford to be a silent spectator to these fast growing changes and, if we fail to respond, we will be left far behind. Alhamdulillah, this School has been established to bring out the best in your child, to live in a sanctuary where they can learn, worship, play and grow, free of societal corruption, thus providing an ideal learning environment to enrich individual student’s potential and imbibe Islamic values at an early age.
The following formal subjects are taught (English medium)
The following Islamic subjects are taught
To highlight the system of education and be on par with international standards, we have committed our academic syllabus to a child-centred education with an interactive and reason based methodology. Formal subjects are taught with an Islamic perspective. To expedite all-round learning, we have teachers to student ratio of 1:8. Started with classes up to Grade 2 in 2004, Inshaa Allaah we have starting from this academic year (2015-16) till +2 (GCE Level).
Faculty of Hifz-e-Qur’an
Alhamdulillah, the process of the Hifz of the Qurán starts from the Pre-KG level. Students in Pre-KG are taught Arabic alphabets, how to pronounce them correctly (Makhraj), correct accent (Lahjah), read with the correct rulings (Tajweed), and ultimately read the Qurán in the correct manner (Naadhirah). At the same time, they also memorize from the smaller chapters (Soorah) according to their grades, till they achieve excellence Inshaa Allaah.
Those students who wish to become a Hafiz of the Qurán and who are supported by their parents spending quality time at home are given special attention in the school, where they spend 4 periods every day in Grade3 & 4. With Allaah’s help, during this phase, the students will be able to memorize nearly 20 plus parts (Juz) and complete the whole Qur’an memorization in the next 2-3 years.
The other students can follow the structured program, i.e., a minimum of two Juz (parts) per grade starting from Grade 2.
Our faculty at present includes 18 Huffaz.
Alhamdulillah, OLIVE INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL has been established with the sole purpose of providing quality formal education along with Hifz of the Qur’aan and Islamic studies covering the major subjects required to have a good foundation of Islam.
