Al-Ahdaf Academy has opened 2017 registration for madrasah* tuition, conversational Arabic and preparatory courses for kindergarten.

Classes are either held in Paya Lebar or in Tampines. The Paya Lebar location is near Paya Lebar MRT station, at the Arab Association (Al-Wehdah), 11, Lorong 37, Geylang Road, Singapore 387908. The Tampines venue is at #07-06 Income @ Tampines Junction, 300 Tampines Avenue 5,

The Madrasah Tuition Program caters to full-time Singapore madrasah students from primary up to secondary level. It aims to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary for their exams in Arabic and Islamic subjects.

There is a Weekday Tuition Program from Monday to Thursday at Paya Lebar. Students can choose from a twice weekly or weekly tuition programme.

A Week-end Tuition Program is held once a week on Saturdays or Sundays at Tampines, either at 9.30am to 11.30am or at 11.30am to 1.30pm.

A minimum of four students are required to start a twice weekly class. Lower primary students pay a monthly fee of S$180 each; upper primary students pay S$190 and secondary students pay S$200.
The weekly class requires at least two students. Lower primary students pay S$150 each a month; upper primary students pay S$160 and secondary students pay S$180.

The Kindergarten Students Preparatory For Primary 1 Madrasah course provides sufficient preparation in the Arabic language for K1 and K2 students to sit for the madrasah’s primary one entry test. K1 and K2 refer to the two years of kindergarten just before primary school, and would correspond to students of four to five years old, and five to six years old respectively.

This course is available all year round. K2 classes are held every Wednesday at the Paya Lebar venue from 3.45pm to 5.45pm. There are currently some vacancies.

A weekly K1 class at Paya Lebar will be beginning soon, with the days and times to be shared later. New once-a-week K1 and K2 classes are beginning in March at the Tampines venue.
Three or more students are required to start a class, at S$130 per month per student. Materials will be provided.

A Conversational Arabic course for secondary madrasah students is also available at Tampines on Sundays from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. The course is designed to enable students to converse in Arabic with basic vocabulary in three months (14 lessons). The course is tailored to help individual students on pronunciation, memorisation and general progress.

At least 10 students are required to form a class. The course costs S$80 a month for three months, and the books cost S$25.

There is a one-time registration fee of S$20 that is waived for those who register for any course by 11 March 2017.
