Primary School Prayers

Updated January 2024

Students in Foundation to Year 2 learn the basics of salat and wudhu during their Islamic Studies classes. This includes memorisation of basic surahs and understanding the importance of prayer in the life of a Muslim. The goal is to embed love for Allah (swt) so that worshipping Him becomes a pleasure and it is not seen as a burden.

In Years 3 to 6, students are given a scheduled time after lunch to complete their wudhu in the purpose built wudhu centre and attend prayers in congregation in the Junior School building. There is an emphasis on creating an environment where students are able see salat as a natural extension of their connection with Allah (swt) and this is again further supported through the Islamic Studies classes where they learn the meaning of the words they recite during prayer.
