Welcome to the Arabic & Islam Department
We are proud of our Arabic language as it is the language of our Quran and spoken by millions of people around the world.
At St Christopher’s School we seek always to recruit qualified and experienced teachers who are able to use modern, educational and interesting methods.
As St Christopher’s School offers the British National curriculum, a large number of the students are non Arabs. This gives the school and the teacher the responsibility to teach them Arabic through using methods that suit the student’s individual needs.
As for Arab students, the school uses the local curriculum from the Ministry of Education in the Kingdom of Bahrain. The teacher is free to be creative and present the subject in an interesting way and we require teachers to find ways to encourage the student to love his mother language. The teacher, as an educator ensures that the students behave well, love their heritage and learn how to treat others sensibly, as well as teaching them the four skills of language, listening, speaking, reading and writing.
