Saleheen New Zealand
A Hutt Valley Trust Project
Guide Book for Parents & Pupils
The aim of Saleheen New Zealand is to provide elementary Islamic education and upbringing to Muslim children living in Lower Hutt and to connect Muslim families with the Masjid and with each other.
To help achieve this, we are starting off by organizing a weekly Islamic Education Class for children aged 5 to 11. This guide book accompanies the enrolment form for the weekend class. It contains basic information, rules and procedures. Insha Allah, as we learn, grow, and introduce more activities, we will keep this guide book up-to-date.
I Love Islam is a series of Islamic studies textbooks that gradually introduces Muslim pupils to the essentials of their faith and bring to light historic and cultural aspects of Islam. Each book of the series is designed to emphasize the aspects of Islam which are appropriate for the grade level. The series cover grades one through twelve and include a pupil textbook and workbook, as well as a teacher’s edition.
The series will cover many aspects of Islam including:
- Fiqh ul-Ibadat
- Fiqh ul-mu’amalat
- Islamic character education
- The Muslim world
- Modern Methodology
- Simple Stories
- Creative Exercises
Note: The academy will provide separate workbooks for individual pupils which they can take home and keep. The textbooks will be used in class and shred by the whole group.
The weekend classes cater to children age 5-11 (primary and early middle school children in New Zealand).
The pupils will be taught in small groups upto 10 or 20. The group a child goes to is based solely on the discretion of the teaching staff. We will consider age, learning ability, rate of progress and prior knowledge of the pupil when placing them into a group.
Separate groups for male and female pupils will be organized for ages 7 and above.
The curriculum we use is graduated across 6 levels. After a few months of operation we expect to be offering classes at all the 6 levels.
We recognize that running all 6 levels will not be possible at the time when the academy first starts operating on Feb 25th 2018. Since no large-scale organized Islamic education has happened in Hutt Valley for a while, we expect most children, even, if older, will not be able to start at higher levels due to lack of sufficient prior knowledge. Therefore, we plan to start offering classes for level 1, 2 and 3 on Feb 25th 2018 at the start of operation. Higher levels will be added as soon as enough children become ready for them. Older children will also start at a level between 1 and 3. However, we expect that older children will able to go through the lower levels quickly and be ready for higher levels.
Class Terms & Timings
The classes are scheduled to take place from 10AM-11:30AM every Sunday during school terms.
There shall be no classes during school holidays, public holidays and Islamic festivals of Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Adh’ha.
Under special circumstances, the academy might have to cancel or re-schedule the lessons on other occasions. The parents will be informed in advance in such cases.
Fees & Scholarships
The fee is $20 per term for each child.
The fees are due a week before the first class of each term.
A reminder will be sent to the parents via text message and email if the fees have not been received by the start of the term.
We fully understand that some families in our community might not be able to afford the fees. If this applies to your situation, please tick the box on the enrolment form to indicate this. In such cases, the academy will provide a scholarship to cover the fees for your child/children. We strongly encourage the parents to enrol their children in the academy even if they cannot afford to pay the fees. The academy will not deny admission to any pupil for financial reasons.
The fees are charged mainly as a token of parent and pupil’s commitments. It is expected that the fees will cover only a fraction of academy’s activities. We will be relying on donations from the community to cover the rest. The money collected via fees can be used on the following activities:
- Purchase of teaching material (books, teacher guides, work books, etc.)
