Learning a language is a process that requires considerable time and practice; however it is one of the most rewarding things your child can learn in school. The Arabic language classes at AGS SALALAH are divided into two sections: Arabic for native Arab speakers (Arabic A) Arabic for non-native speakers (Arabic B) The curriculum for Arabic A follows the Oman Ministry of Education requirements and is enhanced by a range of resources and activities that promote active and purposeful learning. Children are also encouraged to borrow Arabic books from the school library to ensure that they extend their appreciation of Arabic literature.
Islamic Education is a compulsory subject for Muslim students. It is taught in Arabic for Native Arabic speakers and in English for those students who do not speak Arabic as their first language but require Islamic education. The Islamic Department follows the Ministry of Education curriculum. Learning Islamic concepts are combined with practical learning at AGS SALALAH and related to real life examples were possible. Our enthusiastic and dedicated teachers explain prescribed Islamic topics that include Hadiths, Aqidah(Faith), and Akhlaq(Manners), Islamic History, Islamic Social Studies together with the appropriate Surahs from the Noble Qur’an. Our Islamic Education programme is also enhanced by extra Qu’ran recitation and memorisation. We believe that an educational partnership between school and home is vital and we strive to ensure that progress and attainment are shared with both students and their parents.
