What the APAX emblem symbolises

  1. The shield represents the protection of Islam and education
  2. The crescent can be read as a dome or a moon, both symbolising Islam. It can also be seen as a horizon, symbolising the dawn of a new beginning.
  3. The minaret on a crescent symbolises Islamic philosophy and principles which are taught at the school.
  4. The scroll and graduation hat denotes secular education also taught at the school.
  5. The rays of the sun represents the enlightenment of our learners with knowledge, both Islamic and secular, and encourages them to reflect this in every sphere of their lives.
  6. There are 5 rays in the emblem representing the 5 pillars of Islam as well as the 5 principal components of our school – Islam, learners, parents, teachers, governing committee.
  7. The colour turquoise symbolises nature, the preservation/conservation of which we will endeavour to uphold.

APAX Anthem – The Articles of Faith

Amantu billahi wa malaikatihi
wa kutubihi wa rusuluhi wa al-yaum al-akhiri
wa al-qadri khayrihi wa sharrihi min Allah
wa al-basi bad al-maut, la ilaha illa Allah

Faith is belief in Allah and the Messengers
The angels and the Final Day, and the holy scriptures
And to believe in destiny
That good and bad both come from Him
And the Resurrection; there is no god but Allah.

Allah is the creator of Heaven and of earth
Nothing may compare with Him, He is the One alone
The prophets, best of humankind
Sent to all nations and all tribes
Last of all Muhammed, mercy to the worlds.

Formed of light and beauty, the angels of the Lord
To praise Allah, to help mankind,
Jibraeel brings the word.
The scriptures, all by Allah sent,
Torah, Psalms and Gospel then
The source of perfect guidance, the Glorious Quraan.

The reckoning, the Final Day, when all will see their works
Remade in soul and body to stand before the Lord
With patience bearing every grief
With thankfulness for blessings
We are content with destiny, the Will of Allah.
