We trust that your association with us will be a long and fulfilling one. The successful running of our school is dependent upon your co-operation and involvement. We will appreciate your participation in all our functions and activities.

Overview

The Intermediate Phase comprises Grades 4, 5 and 6. We believe that all children have special abilities and each child is unique. We emphasize the uniqueness of each learner and, as such, our method of teaching is child-centered. We seek to provide an enlightening classroom environment in which new ideas are explored and implemented. Our experienced and dedicated team of educators encourage our learners to reach their full potential.

Mission and Vision

Our mission is “To provide young children with the Holistic concept of knowledge with the Holy Quraan and the Sunnah as the source of guidance.”

In amplification, the mission of our School is to provide all learners with a meaningful and high standard of education by effective and dedicated educators aiming to promote and achieve excellence by using techniques which will promote critical thinking and responsible decision-making and which will inculcate sound Islamic moral values and attitudes.

Our vision is to foster the holistic development of every learner and to promote honesty, integrity, responsibility, critical thinking and responsible decision-making skills in order to become and fully functioning and constructive member of society according to the Holy Quran and Sunnah.

Educational Philosophy

Our educational philosophy is rooted in Islamic values and the learners are cared for in a stimulating environment.

Curriculum

Our School has an Islamic ethos and our programmes inculcate values of Iman (belief), Taqwa (piety) and Akhlaq (ethics). It is the objective of the school to impart the requisite Secular and Islamic knowledge to the pupil. The curriculum is therefore based on an integrated system in order to provide a well balanced programme. The Secular curriculum is based on that of the Gauteng Education Department.

Grade 4

Our learners are exposed to subject teaching for the first time. They have a different educator for each of the subjects. Our learners still have a class or form teacher to whom the learners report each morning. This form teacher assist the learners and is responsible for the overall mid year and final reports.

In this grade, our learners are taught a variety of subjects. These subjects include English, Afrikaans, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Social sciences, Technology, Economic Management Sciences and Life Skills. In addition, Islamiyat subjects are also taught to the learners. Our learners also participate in speech contests, book and newspaper quizzes. They are also taken on various excursions to places of educational interest.

Our learners in this phase continue to enjoy a child-centered approach. Our learners are given an opportunity to develop to their optimum potential.

Grade 5

In this Grade, our learners consolidate what they have learnt in the previous Grade. They build, and strengthen, the skills learnt in previous years. Emphasis is placed on individual growth and development. The same subjects taught in Grade 4 are continued in this Grade.

Our learners are encouraged to express themselves and become independent and confident thinkers. The educators emphasize the cognitive development of language and numerical skills and thus create well-rounded individuals.

Our learners also participate in speech contests, book and newspaper quizzes. They are also taken on various excursions to places of educational interest.

Grade 6

In this Grade, our learners not only continue with their subjects, but do so at a more advanced level. They build on what they have learnt in the various subjects first introduced to them in Grade 4. They are also encouraged to speak and write confidently. We continue with our child-centered approach to education. Our learners are taught to express themselves and encouraged to build their self image so that they can become capable and confident thinkers.

Our learners write formal examinations twice a year, in June and November of each year. Assessments are, however, performed continuously and they include class and cycle tests. There work is evaluated through continuous assessment during class time. These tests are seen as opportunities by our learners to display their knowledge and skills.

Our learners also participate in speech contests, book and newspaper quizzes. They are also taken on various excursions to places of educational interest.
