INTRODUCTION

 

The Islamic Charity Projects Association (ICPA) facilitates the delivery of accredited child protection and classroom management courses to its scripture teachers. This is achieved in partnership with accredited NSW school staff in order to ensure that our teachers are up to date with the relevant legislations, policies and best practice when volunteering in NSW government schools.

 

The purpose of SRE is to enrich students with Islamic knowledge of beliefs and practices and to guide them as to the best manners and conduct which would lead to their harmonious existence in Australian society. Our scripture curriculum is designed upon basic concepts that are taught in the early primary school years, and which are gradually taught in more depth as the student progresses through their school years.
Our curriculum is fundamentally based around:

  • Islamic events
  • Good manners
  • Islamic practises common to all Muslims
  • Living harmoniously within society while practising Islam in Australia

These points expand in the later to school years to cover issues such as:

  • Developing a strong network of trusted contacts and friends
  • Knowing the appropriate conduct when interacting with different people and in different situations
  • Knowing what Islam is about and what it means to be an Australian Muslim
  • Knowing the bad effects of abusive behavior and illicit drug use
  • Knowing how to seek help when in trouble
  • Identifying the signs of extremism and knowing how to refute it

Our teachers are trained in matters of child protection and safety as well as in the restorative behavior management strategy. We believe that by attending our classes, students would receive a well-rounded education in regard to their religion while also being mindful of matters of their social well-being and welfare.
