About

 

Madrasah Al-Ma’arif (MAR) was founded by As-Syeikh Muhammad Fadzullah Suhaimi in 1936. In 2007, it relocated once more to the current premise at 3 Lorong 39 Geylang. In 2016, the Madrasah celebrated its 80th anniversary 

As an all-female madrasah with intakes ranging from primary to pre-university levels, the Madrasah focuses equally on both the Islamic and Secular education. MAR also offers a holistic CCA program which consists of modular CCA at primary level and at secondary level, 4 clubs and societies (eg. Media Club, Lifeskills and Entrepreneurship Club) and 3 sports (eg. Archery, Silat and Netball). 

The madrasah has introduced programmes that support and enhance the Ma’arif Experience – programmes such as Experiential Humanities Approach, ‘Science Comes Alive’ Programme, Values-based Early Morning Programme, Holistic CCA Programme, and comprehensive and progressive Pre U Programme, to name a few. 

Values such as Respect, Adaptability, Resilience and Empathy serve as enablers to more competent and progressive individuals who remain rooted to the spirituality of students’ faith as Muslims. 

“In our pursuit of making our madrasah a dynamic institution, we work to create a safe, nurturing yet stimulating environment that is built on positive relationships and collective effort between teachers, students and parents. We believe that every learner is unique, a Muslimah leader and has the potential to strive for the highest educational outcome that they are capable of achieving.”
