Dr. Yusof Talek, Director of College of Islamic Studies, Prince of Songkla University, Pattani Campus, revealed plans to establish a demonstration school for Islamic studies, promoting the integration of Islam in individual subjects.
The plans focus on the process of teaching religion through extracurricular activities rather than through in-class lessons. The activities are targeted to students of Secondary 4 (“Matthayom 4”) and higher, who live in dormitories provided by the College of Islamic Studies.
The demonstration school for Islamic studies will open for 70 secondary students in 2015. Additionally, the College of Islamic Studies is developing other ambitious projects, such as the International Language Center and the Islamic Teacher Training Institute.
