Syllabus

Qaidah

Qaidah, in Islam in South Asia, are a series of books for beginners to learn Quranic Arabic. It is used to teach children how to read the Quran. The Qaida has further more categories and  these are to understand how to Quran Works. The Noorani Qaida teaches students via passages of the Quran. It begins with the Arabic alphabet. It then shows how the alphabets are connected. It is widely accepted as the Arabic alphabet


For us here at TPA, it is most important to get the foundation solid before moving on.  A strong foundation will hold pillars resiliently.  Our "roots" teaching methodology will allow the child's learning to firm this foundation from their early age. 

Tajweed

Tajweed meaning "elocution".  Tajweed is an Arabic word, which literally means to beautify or adorn something, sometimes rendered as tajweed. It refers to the rules governing pronunciation during recitation of the Quran. 


An absolute necessity in learning with tajweed as the origin of letter's play a pivotal role in the meaning of the actual word.  Henec the reason we have made it a mandatory to learn tajweed from the Qaidah stage onwards.

The Glorious Quran

The Quran,  literally meaning "the recitation" is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a true revelation from God without a shadow of doubt.


With such great importance it is only appropriate that we do justice by teaching the Quran well with beautiful respected teaching techniques. We aim, not only to teach the linguistic grammer of the Quran but it's gratitude of manifestation that will improve the life of the student and its environment alike. 

Religious Studies & History

 Although predominately focused on Islam, our religious studies, alternately known as the study of religion, is an academic field devoted to research into religious beliefs, behaviours, and institutions. 

Our teaching describes, compares, interprets, and explains religion, emphasising systematic, historically based, and cross-cultural perspectives of other major religions and promoting respect and tolerance for them.  Our focus is teaching how we can live together in community regardless of religious and cultural difference.

Manners, Etiquette's and Discipline

image6

Here at our establishment we cannot express enough the practicing of good manners, it  is so significant. Good manners are just like opening doors and writing thank you notes. While writing notes and opening doors for others is nice, true etiquette goes deeper. 


Good manners are very essential and compulsory to have (as a standard at our academy) for a person in order to live a disciplined, peaceful and happy life as well as get success in any field. Discipline on the flip side is a manner of life, where one should try to be on time and live in an organised and systematic way. Discipline can be clarified as training which can build up one’s moral character and helps to produce a specific type of behaviour For these reasons we will start practical role plays where our students will practise the manners in various scenarios.    We recognise that this needs to start in the early days to ensure that these skills become second nature to our students.

Recreation & Activities

Activities & recreation (A&R) play a huge part in the education environment.  Our criterion for the simulation of the mind is based on the following. 

  • Attention and concentration: Sustained effort, doing activities without distraction and being able to hold that effort long enough to get the task done.
  • Receptive (understanding) language: Comprehension of the English language.
  • Expressive (using) language: The use of English language through speech, sign or alternative forms of communication to communicate wants, needs, thoughts and ideas.
  • Play skills:  engagement in self motivated activities that are normally associated with pleasure and enjoyment where the activities may be, but are not necessarily, goal oriented.
  • Pre-language skills: The ways in which we communicate without using words and include things such as gestures, facial expressions, imitation, joint attention and eye-contact.
  • Self regulation: The ability to obtain, maintain and change one’s emotion, behaviour, attention and activity level appropriate for a task or situation in a socially acceptable manner.
  • Executive functioning (for elder youths): Higher order reasoning and thinking skills.


We have devised our activities & recreation based on the above principles.
