RIS has partnered with the United Nations and works closely with them as we design our curriculum. You can expect to see the Sustainable Development Goals featuring extensively throughout the school. We will be working closely with Frode Kristensen, Regionleder Øst, FN-sambandet and his school team.
The school will be applying to become an IB candidate school for both the Primary and the Middle Schools.
The International Award is a global framework for non-formal education and learning, which challenges young people to dream big, celebrate their achievements and make a difference in their world. Through developing transferable skills, increasing their fitness levels, cultivating a sense of adventure and volunteering in their community, the Award helps young people to find their purpose, passion and place in the world.
It operates in more than 130 countries and territories, helping to inspire millions of young people. And although the Award’s framework remains the same wherever it is delivered, no two Awards are the same. Instead, each young person designs and creates their own bespoke programme, unique to them. There are currently more than a million young people doing their Award around the world, via hundreds of thousands of youth-focused partners and operators, including schools, youth organisations, examination boards and youth offender institutions.
Founded more than 60 years ago, the Award is available to all 14-24-year olds and equips young people with the skills they need for life regardless of their background, culture, physical ability or interests. On an individual level this can make a transformational difference to a young person’s life; on a collective basis, it has the power to bring significant change to wider society.
Kids Against Plastic
RIS have joined Amy and Ella Meek, aged 17 and 15, and the founders of Kids Against Plastic!
Not long ago they came across the UN’s Global Goals and got inspired to do their bit for the planet, and after finding out about the negative effect single-use plastic is having on the environment, they launched the Kids Against Plastic campaign.
The school is a member of Abelia, this commits the school to follow the IB curriculum that has been approved by UDIR.
