welcome

It gives me immense pleasure to introduce Al-Falaah college to you. Established in 1984, we are a fairly young school.

Al-Falaah college has nevertheless established itself as a centre of excellence through a plethora of accolades, recognitions and awards. We are committed to providing a holistic education in an environment of excellence infused with Islamic values. The college environment nurtures the innate ability of each student to explore and discover their Allah-given talent and for them to achieve their full potential.

We at Al-Falaah college distinguish ourselves as an Institute of relevance because we recognise our role in dealing with the dynamism of modern day living and the concomitant challenges and demands on our communities to maintain our Islamic identity within a South African context.

HIFZ classes (For Both Boys & Girls)

Learners who excel in the recitation of, and have a passion to memorise the Quran are encouraged to enroll at the Hifz classes. these classes are held before and after school, during Quran Lessons, Saturday mornings and for a part of the school holidays.

This programme is supported by dedicated teachers who have an excellent method of evaluating lessons while ensuring that the past lessons are committed to memory.

Due to the nature of Hifz, only a limited number of learners can be admitted to this programme.

E-Learning

At Al Falaah, we have embraced the new digital curriculum as one of the mediums of teaching. We are constantly looking at the latest tested solutions in e-teaching. We first pilot them, then implement them through a phased approach. This ensures we get the best out of the solution while avoiding serious issues later.

We are currently in phase 2 of a pilot project that has seen every grade 8 student receive an iPad. Teachers monitor and control student iPads through Apple Classroom. The e-learning material is distributed via the I.T. Schools platform. This system allows us to cater for the different learning needs our students have.

We have extended the e-learning medium to our grade 00 to grade 3s. Twice every week, these children get to use the iPad lab. Teachers are given training via an accredited Apple Trainer. Learning is made fun which gets kids fully engaged thereby improving the teaching and learning process.

Character Development

Tarbiyyah

We have implemented a comprehensive tarbiyyah programme for learners from Gr 0 to Gr 9. These lessons form part of the learners daily timetable and focuses on character building and spirituality as an intrinsic aspect in the development of a strong Islamic identity.

Ethos is also encouraged across the school
through other initiatives in the curriculum.

Leadership

Learners at Al-Falaah college are afforded a number of leadership opportunities to develop
self-esteem and confidence. Learner representatives from each grade are elected onto the learner shura which meets regularly to discuss affairs and to make recommendations to the school Management.

The prefect body also plays an integral role in assisting educators toward achieving optimal and ef cient man- agement of the school. such empowerment of learners offers invaluable exposure and instils a sense of responsibility necessary in their lives beyond the school.
