Afkaaruna Integrated Education System
A. Excellent Islamic Studies (al-Dirasah al-Islamiyyah)
“The believers were destroyed by their inability in Arabic”
To achieve excellent Islamic studies, our Ministry of curriculum covers three elements:
- (MORA) Ministry of Curriculum of Religious Affairs (Qur’an and Hadits, Aqidah and Akhlaq, Fiqh and Islamic History and Culture)
- Hifdzul Qur’an (Qur’anic memorization).
- Pesantren (an Indonesian-style of Islamic boarding house) contents aiming at the ability to read classical books (qiraah al-kutub) and Arabic conversation (al-Muhadatsah al-Yaumiyyah).
B. World Class Curriculum and Certifications
Preschool, Kindergarten and Primary are essential stages in a child’s education and Afkaaruna Islamic School helps students to have strong desire of learning (Muhibbul ‘Ilmi). For this purpose, the madrasa offers a wide range of activities for students to discover their interests and optimize their potentials.
Afkaaruna Preschool adopts Montessori Curriculum, Afkaaruna Kindy adopts IPC (International Primary Curriculum) and Afkaaruna Primary adopts Cambridge Standard to provide a strong base and make students feel confident, self-directed and learning actively. In addition, Cambridge also has the potential of being flexible as it is combined with the Indonesian2013 curriculum. Afkaaruna Primary uses Cambridge Curriculum for those subjects: English, Mathematics and Science.
C. National Curriculum
In addition to Cambridge Standard, Afkaaruna Primary adopts the 2013 National Curriculum. The curriculum is designed and implemented to maintain students’ competencies and ignite students’ eagerness for inquiries.
In Primary 6 (P-Six), the final year of Afkaaruna Primary, all students will sit for the National Examination (UN/Ujian Nasional) organized by Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia. This examination is a compulsory and we will make sure that all students are ready to participate in it. Therefore, we will intensively start the UN preparation at Primary 4 (P-Four) to Primary 6 (P-Six).
D. Afkaaruna Learning Pack [ALP]
ALP Al-Dirasah Al-Islamiyyah (ALP Diris)
ALP Dirisis conducted every morning. These activities are the first learning pack for students aiming for building Islamic habits and improving students’ capabilities in reading Qur’an, Arabic literacy, & memorizing surah and Du’a. ALP Diris also consist of knowledge and practices of al-Ibadah al-Yaumiyah such as Shalat Fardhu, Shalat Sunnah, Shalat Bil-Jamaah, Dzikir, Daily D’ua, Infaq, etc.
2. ALP English (Story Based Learning & Pronunciation)
Not only it was conducted in 30 minutes practice session every day, but ALP English will also function as a learning subject with two meetings in a week. It is served as a basic and extension of students’ English skills.
E. Extensive Co-Curricular Activities (CCA) & Competition
Co-Curricular Activities (CCA)
The co-curricular activities are considered as an integral part of learning. It is specifically designed to develop students’ characters and help students to maintain their passions and talents. For this, Afkaaruna Islamic School offers wide range of CCA including arts (crafting, painting, and drawing), music (hadrah, traditional and modern music), sports (pencak silat martial arts), scouts, dance and drama, movie screening and appreciation. Indeed, all students are required to participate in CCA.
In Afkaaruna Islamic School, students are encouraged to participate several competitions held by either the madrasa or other parties. In anticipating the competition, students are intensively trained to prepare them to participate. Winning the competition is a bonus, but having a high confident and sportive character is tremendously essential.
