Vibrant Role of Arabic Language and Islamic Education at Woodlem Park

We believe we can make Islamic Education and Arabic language more interesting and meaningful for our students by empowering them to communicate with the community around them in Arabic. The founders and leadership of WP School have developed a clear and ambitious vision in teaching Arabic Language and Islamic Education for all grades. Arabic Language is the most important subject in the school curriculum, based on the language of the Qura’an and the culture of UAE. The leadership of the school was keen to adopt the standards of the Ministry of Education for all levels and skills and for all students, whether Arab or non-Arab students. Learning will focus on experiencing the culture: through songs, stories, or tales from the Arabic speaking world. Experiential learning will steer your child to be immersed in the rich heritage of the UAE and the entire Arab world. Pervasive use of Metaverse and 21 st century learning skills will raise the level of the Arabic language and Islamic Education to high levels of quality. Within Islamic Studies, we integrate the foundations of scientific literacy and WPS Learning habits. Our school is equipped with dedicated facilities for ablution and prayer. The school leadership adopted this dynamic policy because Arabic language is at the heart of the UAE’s senior leadership, which aims to foster a community culture, support Islamic education and enable students to communicate fluently in UAE’s multinational and multicultural society.
