Weekend Islamic School

At this day and age, we simply cannot overemphasise the need for our children to be imbued with the necessary moral and religious foundations based upon sound Islamic teachings. We offer Islamic studies classes during the weekends for children and youths between the ages of 5 to 21 (preschool to tertiary), tailored for students who are attending academic schools, institutes, polytechnics and universities during the weekdays.

At our weekend Islamic school, your child attends a weekly session of religious learning classes. We have in store for them an interesting package of learning initiatives that is not only unique but also innovative. Our classes are based on their academic level (e.g. Primary 1, Primary 2, etc) so that our students can be in the class with their peers.

Our Teachers
Our teachers are all madrasah graduates and have been accredited by Singapore’s Asatizah Recognition Board (ARB), and are certified to teach Islamic studies. ARB is an independent committee formed by the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) to oversee the professional conduct of all Islamic religious teachers in Singapore.

SimplyIslam works closely with the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) and Iqra International Education Foundation, a US-based educational outfit that specialises in integrated curriculum with over 20 years of experience.  Iqra’s curriculum is currently being used by Islamic schools in USA, South Africa, Australia, United Kingdom and Asia.  Iqra International has revised and redesigned the full-time madrasah curriculum and study materials in Singapore, under a multi-million dollar contract with the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS).  The textbooks that are used for our weekend Islamic school are published by MUIS and/or Iqra International.  The list of the textbooks and workbooks to be purchased for our weekend Islamic school is according to class level, and is available from the administration office.

Dress Code
No uniforms! That’s right, we do not require our students to wear a uniform. We welcome the diversity of fashion that our students use to express themselves, and it’s a good learning experience for students to learn about the acceptable styles of dressing. We are committed to standards of simplicity, neatness, cleanliness, attractiveness, modesty and good taste.

We don’t have exams too! But we do have regular assessments and project work to assess our students.
