In addition to our curriculum, SZPAG runs a range of special programnes for our students, designed to further develop leadership and innovation skills, as well as a greater knowledge of their country’s traditions and religion.
The Spring of Hearts Program for Holy Quran Memorization
The Spring of Hearts is a Holy Quran Memorization Program adopted by SZPA under the patronageof H.H Sheikha Fatima bint Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nayhan, wife of H.H Sheikh Shakhbut bin Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan.
This free program conducted 4 days a week from 7:00- 7:40 am for Grades1-9 students.
The program focuses on helping students memorize the Holy Quran passionately along with elocution (tajweed) to reinforce their reading skills and letter vocalization and pronunciation.
Students are placed in different sections based on the student’s level of memorizing. The program is taught by specialized teachers who are licensed by GAIAE (General Authority of Islamic Affairs and Endowments) in an appropriate educational environment. Students are evaluated twice a year and receive certificates to indicate their level in memorizing. At the end of the year, a ceremony is held in celebration of their success and achievement as they receive rewards.
Selected teachers from SZPA supervise the students to maintain their safety and attendance. As the program finds overwhelming response from parents for its academic approach and distinction.
Across the school students participate in environmental awareness sessions. From Kindergarten to Grade 12 students are collecting plastic waste to recycle as part of the Simply Bottles initiative, bottles are sent to recycling and turned into thread which is then used to make clothing.
