Our curriculum is based on the CAPS (Curriculum Assessment Policy Statement) system as advised by the Department of Education.  This system outlines specific subject matter and assessment criteria which is taught across South Africa.  We at Nizamiye Primary and High School, Midrand, concur with the CAPS system and focus on literacy and numeracy although there are many other facets that are enjoyed inside and outside the classroom.  Students are taught problem solving and creative thinking which is achieved through experiential and discovery learning.  Children will acquire decision-making skills, which will facilitate development of moral learning and develop self-discipline and self-confidence necessary to promote the fulfilment of their potential.
