At Al Falaah College, we believe in a joyful learning experience. We take the classroom outdoors and make our learning interactive and engaging.
This old-school hopscotch activity was a fun learning adventure and the best way to revise prefixes and suffixes.
As part of the Seerah Exhibition program hosted by Al Falaah College, learners were excited to be involved in activities inspired by the life of the Noble Prophet SAW.
Grade 4 learners were enthralled by the miraculous story of how our beloved Nabi (SAW) split the moon. They listened in awe and were then motivated to write poignant journal entries. Learners’ journal entries detailed their own thoughts, Islamic goals and personal duas.
Nabi ﷺ is the last messenger of Allah Ta’alaah. He is blessed with many miracles and is also very kind and caring towards others. This story that I’ll be sharing with you is about how much Nabi ﷺ cares for others.
One day a poor man brought a bunch of grapes to Nabi ﷺ as a gift. Nabi ﷺ ate one, two, three and then the whole bunch of grapes by himself. He did not offer grapes to anyone present.
The poor man who brought those grapes was very pleased and left. One of the sahabah asked, "O messenger of Allah! How come you ate all the grapes by yourself and did not offer it to anyone of us present? Nabi ﷺ smiled and said, "I ate all the grapes by myself because the grapes were sour. If I would have offered you, you might have made funny faces and that would have hurt the feelings of that poor man. I thought to myself that it's better that I eat all of them cheerfully and please the poor man. I did not want to hurt the feelings of that poor man." Such were the manners of this most noble prophet of Allah.
Afrikaans in die Intermediêre fase
Hoekom leer ons Afrikaans?
Die aanleer van 'n nuwe taal gee 'n beter begrip van sy sprekers en hul kultuur. Dit gee jou 'n insig in die hart van 'n groep mense, hul uitdrukkings, hul interpretasies en hul manier van kommunikeer. Dit verbind jou op 'n dieper vlak met mense wat dalk soortgelyk aan jou is, maar wat 'n ander kultuur het. Om 'n nuwe taal te leer maak die lewe interessanter en opwindender!
A Year to Remember
The year started as a promising one with pupils raring to go. Pupils engaged in class and Mathletics lessons, having lots of fun. Using technology, pupils had great fun doing complex sums on the ipad.
And then lockdown hit!
Teachers immediately went into learning mode with words like “online”, “moodle”, “eLearning “, “google meet “, flying around.
And this was the start to our new normal. Both teachers and pupils embraced this new method of teaching and learning, and “online learning “ was started.
The year has been one of learning, learning, and more learning.
And you know what?
The entire syllabus was still completed despite all Covid challenges.
Alhumdulillah, this has been a special year, and certainly one to remember.

A Word from ZA Alli and F Kajee
In spite of constraints placed on us by COVID 19, all learners and educators persevere doggedly to achieve our goals. Through dedication we overcame the many challenges posed to us in the teaching and learning situation. Videos and powerpoint applications became our allies in ameliorating difficulties with practicals and knowledge gleaned therefrom.
The Moodle platform became the order of the day for learners and teachers.
In spite of these seemingly insurmountable, changing situations we have overcome and conquered the pursuit of excellence in developing scientific attitudes and the pursuance of truth. The Holy Quraan says (‘produce your proof’).
WE have shown the proof in the results attained by our learners. The sacrifices made by both learners, educators and parents have borne fruit.
Congratulations to all. We look forward to an improved situation in the new year.
A trip back in time. Learners were very excited to share items that their grandparents and parents had from the past. Every learner was eager to share their story with the class. Well done to all the Grade 4 learners for showing such enthusiasm.
The grade 6 learners studied democracy in the 3rd term. They need to understand the importance of democracy and just how different it is to apartheid in South Africa. The learners gained an understanding of the purpose of the Constitution, the role of Parliament etc. They also had to do a research project and profile a South African who contributed to democracy.
The grade 5´s learnt about the physical features and the history of Africa. Alhamdulillah many of our pupils have travelled and have made good memories with their families. They have also gained a lot of knowledge of different places around the world. Many of our pupils shared their experiences of different places they visited in Africa.
Travel exposes children and makes them interested in the geography of places, the history of different countries, different people and different languages and food.
The grade 5 pupils made posters of the physical features that interested them and presented it to the class. Most of the posters were displayed for all to see, read and learn from.

The Grade 5 learners were given an assignment on Egypt. They researched information and visual media on the topic they chose. The exercise proved to be very engaging. The learners learned the skill of summarising and editing, and worked independently to produce outstanding presentations. Learners also shared their amazing experiences of visiting Egypt and others are better prepared to make the visit to Egypt.
This topic created a wonderful interest of discussion and it was an absolute pleasure to be engaged with the learners.
Visual Arts provides a path for the learners creativity and self-expression. It forms an integral part in the teaching of colour, layout, perspective and balance, all elements that are necessary for visual and digital presentations. Most importantly, visual arts provide experiences in ways that are real and extraordinary.
The grade 5 and 6 learners used the elements of art and engaged in activities of line and design, stamp making, printing, monochromatic colour, graffiti art, still life drawings, radiating patterns and mixed media artworks.
It was an absolute pleasure working with the ‘class of 2021’
Life Skills is made up of three components viz: Life Orientation, Arts and Culture and Physical Education. The syllabus is designed to equip learners with skills, that will be of use throughout their lives. These include social and emotional dynamics such as inter personal and intra personal relationships, dealing with communicable diseases, living a healthy lifestyle, how to study and using resources effectively. Personal development and interacting with the environment underpins themes covered. Lessons were done on site and online to provide an effective service during these challenges of Covid 19. Alhumdulillah we were able to complete the syllabus and maintain a high standard. It was a pleasure working with the learners and I wish them success for the future.
Learners in Grade 4 created beautiful pieces of art with the theme “Warm and Cool Colours.” Learners now understand how artists use warm and cool colours to represent their ideas, they can identify warm and cool colours and how colours can evoke different emotions.
