SCIL’s elementary branch is the place where strong foundations are laid for the bright and prosperous future of our young Mominas by creating an environment upholding Islamic values. Classes from Grade I to IV are offered at this level. Children’s minds are very tender at this stage and can be easily molded in any shape we like.
We, therefore, try to interact with every child individually and politely to create a lasting impression on their minds. This has been achieved by employing highly qualified and experienced teachers, following true Islamic values.
Halaqa Class (Tarbiya Session):
To familiarize our young Monimas about the importance of Hadith and Sunnah in our lives, a weekly Halaqa Class is conducted. It is a complete Tarbiya Program in which children are encouraged to apply Sunnah in their daily lives and discuss their problems.
Reading not only holds importance for both 1st and 2nd language acquisition but has numerous other intellectual development benefits as well creating a love for reading will reward young minds for their whole lives. The purpose of setting a reading class in addition to the regular library class at elementary level is to build internal love and pleasure for reading, be it from books, passages or articles. From magazines, sign boards or any other informative area on variety of topics. This will not only improve their reading skill enhance vocabulary and result in academic growth but open a world to them in a completely different way.
Our young Mominas start offering Zuhr prayer from Gr.II onwards. They are taught how to perform Wudu and offer prayers according to Sunnah.
No one can deny the fact that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. Besides regular game periods, special indoor and out door sport activites are arranged. Some of these include:
Horse Riding (arranged in collaboration with Lahore Polo Club)
Swimming (at ARC)
We at SCIL believe that parental role is pivotal in complete upbringing and development of every child, therefore we look forward to good partnership between school and parent. Regular parent meeting are organized in order to keep the parents informed about their children’s progress at SCIL.
To develop students liking for reading and developing their ability to read with expression and proper intonation. We at SCIL focus on a very intense reading month. In order to make it more interesting and enjoyable for children, reading projects related to art activities are conducted and displayed. A book exhibition is also organized during the month. The month culminates with a reading competition in English and Urdu.
Every child has inherent talent which needs to be nurtured by providing them opportunities to enhance their crictical thinking. Creative writing month is held every year to improve mature writing skills. Students are motivated to write extensively to express themselves and their best pieces of writing are displayed and are included in school magazine.
Field Trips (Historical and Educational/Informative Places): It is a universally recognized fact that human learning and development takes place where there is awareness of one’s environment. In order to provide the same, field trips are arranged every year for each class.
