Madrasah Wak Tanjong Al-Islamiah (MWTI) was first established as Madrasah Ad-Diniyyah Al-Islamiah. Classes offering religious education to Muslim children at the nearby villages were conducted between Maghrib (dusk) and Isyak (night) prayers at the residence of the late Ustaz Mohd Noor bin Taib. After several years of teaching, Ustaz Mohd Noor’s students grew in numbers and expansion was inevitable – a full-time Madrasah, with a permanent campus ground at Kampung Wak Tanjong had to be built.
Fundraising for the construction of a school building was undertaken after which the school moved. Academic subjects were also added to the syllabus.
MWTI has been going strong for more than 60 years owing to the support of the parents, MUIS and the Muslim community at large. We continuously strive to improve the education that we provide our students by upgrading our facilities, enhancing teacher’s skills through training and improving our management systems and IT infrastructure.
Your continued support is important to us and will go a long way towards contributing to a better student experience at MWTI.
