Message from The Vice Principal
Parents often ask, how they can help their children at school and my answer is always the same-READ!! The ability to read and write is necessary to master all school subjects and to communicate what is learned. Reading is one of the most inexpensive and readily available forms of education and entertainment! Please continue to reinforce the importance of reading every day. Reading every day at home is not an option, but a must so that your child can exceed academically and build high vocabulary.
I firmly believe the partnership between our families and our school is an important part of our success. Students benefit when parents and guardians are involved in their learning. It is our goal to have consistent communication between home and school; we offer regular opportunities for families to learn about what is happening at school.
Together, we will help your child, and all of our students, develop a love for learning and good life-long habits!
At The Intellect, Elementary Section, we groom our children in all aspects of life. An environment rich with language is provided through new vocabulary and interactive activities. Pre language and Maths skills are taught through interactive games to develop understanding and confidence. Tajweed, Art & Crafts, multimedia and educational field trips enhance their learning experience. Early years of education along with the readiness of school is focusing on developing the social and emotional needs of our young learners through exploration, experimentation, and conversation.
Young learners require approval and encouragement from the adults who are around them to develop patience and confidence in them. They explore their surroundings and learn to appreciate and be tolerant. This attitude at school builds their learning skills and gives them a readiness for school life ahead.Our curriculum is specifically designed to facilitate students to develop understanding of their Deen. From early years they are taught all subjects in the light of the Quran and Sunnah. Regular studies with Islamic integration along with Tabiyah help our young learners to understand the world around them and become confident Muslim’s who will face the world.Children have the tendency to learn and memorize; they can also learn more than one language at a time easily, and keeping this quality we begin Tajweed as early as in Nursery. Children are taught Tawauz and Tasmiya at nursery level with its importance and by the time they leave Elementary they build sound knowledge of all the rules of Tajweed. We provide a routine in which we ensure that children interact and actively participate in class group lessons. Everyday group lessons are followed up with hands on material to make children learn by doing and practicing. We ensure that interest and concentration is being harnessed side by side. The teaching methodologies are based to make children independent, both in action and in thought. Listening and Language skills and concepts are taught through innovative and engaging activities that support and guide the children to academic success and healthy personal growth. From an early stage we want them to develop interest in reading as we begin pre reading games from Nursery. By the time they reach Kindergarten, they enjoy the experience of independently selecting books from library. This Elementary journey is full of wonderful and exciting adventures.All our activities are designed to cater different kinds of students, each and every student gets individual attention. We maintain individual student report and monitor their progress. Regular feedbacks are provided to parents to keep a strong bridge between home and school.
