In The Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Assalamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu!
Welcome to Hamd House Academy!
My name is Farida Idris Ibrahim and I am honoured and humbled that the Most High has ordained that I be the
administrator of such a prestigious institution.
Hamd House Academy aims to provide an educational experience for your child that encapsulates the word holistic. Before anything else, we aim to inculcate “Ma’rifa” – knowing of the Almighty Allah – in the lives of our students by providing authentic Islamic education via an Islamic Pedagogy which dictates “THE WHY, THE WHAT’ and the how of the learning process.
At Hamd House Academy, our curriculum orientation subscribes to the idea of “Enduring Understandings” – “Big Ideas” or themes which we utilise to connect different areas of study by cutting across subject-matter lines and
emphasising unifying concepts. This orientation focuses on making connections for students, allowing them to engage in relevant, meaningful activities that can be connected to real life through higher order critical thinking and applied in a context that is relevant to them as Muslims in Nigeria.
Our philosophy guides us to the important fact that academia does not make up the entire “curriculum” and so we offer a rich skills acquisition program where students are trained in areas such as tailoring, artisanship, electronics, computer programming, agriculture, etc. This program in conjunction with our “Muslim Biz Kids” (Youth Entrepreneurship) initiative, aims to ensure that each one of our students has a money-making business of their own up and running before they graduate from SS3 insha Allah.
Our civic engagement initiative is another very important aspect of our students’ journey at Hamd House Academy, where each child is expected to embark on at least one community project of their choosing, each term as their own little contribution as responsible, active citizens of Kaduna State. We hope this will foster in them the spirit of selflessness and empathy which are indispensible characteristics that all prospective leaders must possess.
Hamd House Academy’s mission is to provide an environment which will inspire lifelong learning, noble character, academic excellence and righteous leadership. This mission includes the provision of a safe, secure, and orderly school environment for all students, providing children the opportunity to manage their behaviour and supporting them while they learn how to manage it, and eventually grow in self discipline.
You are very welcome to visit us at the school at anytime for further enquiries. We look forward to having you join our family, as we strive to produce generations of God-conscious “Solutionaries”, who will lead the way in reviving our ‘Lost Glory’ first and foremost as a country, and eventually as an Ummah.
