1. Islamic Content
Our Islamic curriculum covers three elements:
- Curriculum of Ministry of Religious Affairs (Qur’an and Hadits, Aqidah and Akhlaq, Fiqh and Islamic History and Culture)
- Fun Tahfidz (Qur’anic memorization).
- Pesantren (an Indonesian-style of Islamic boarding house) contents aiming at the ability to read classical books (qiraah al-kutub).
2. Cambridge IGCE Curriculum
Our international curriculum is based on Cambridge Standard since it is used all over the world and more than 9000 schools offer this program. Cambridge subjects used in this program are: English language and literature, Mathematics and Sciences. This also has the potential for flexibility as it is combined with the Indonesian 2013 Curriculum.
3. After School Program
We believe that “Everybody is genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid” (Albert Einstein). At Afkaaruna Primary, we aim to ensure that all barriers to learning are removed so every pupil reaches their full potential. This includes regularly looking at every child’s capacity to achieve more. Starting with recognising students’ hobbies and talents, our program is then designed to consistently improve children’s potential, alligning their interests with our focus on areas such as religious studies, science, sports and the arts.
