To empower caring, internationally-minded, and independent learners who act responsibly to improve the world around us.
RIS is delighted to be a United Nations school and will be working closely to put the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at the very heart of everyday learning. The SDGs are a universal call to action to solve the world’s most pressing issues, presenting the perfect tool to reimagine and reshape the future.
A student-centred approach will aim to develop passionate and confident agents of change, ready to make a difference in the world now and in the future. Additionally, the staff that have been recruited all have this as a focus of their practice, making up a strong and united team in their mission to inspire a community of lifelong learners and agents of positive change.
Developing entrepreneurship benefits students from all socioeconomic backgrounds, as it teaches students to think outside the box and nurtures unconventional talents and skills. Furthermore, it creates opportunity, ensures social justice, instills confidence, and stimulates the economy.
At RIS we will encourage and support students and classes to innovate and build businesses, as they will be taking action to lead change.
Each grade is challenged to initiate their own business. They will be expected to arrange finance, run budgets, marketing campaigns, research and develop Annual General Meetings.
Outdoor education supports emotional, behavioural and intellectual development. Studies show that students who learn outdoors develop: a sense of self, independence, confidence, creativity, decision-making and problem-solving skills, empathy towards others, motor skills, self-discipline, and initiative.
RIS is developing a programme across all grades to support this philosophy. It is our intention to have students of all grades partake in a residential trip during the course of the year.
When schools proactively create a culture of service, they make education real, relevant, and rewarding. This also prepares students to become global citizens, and teach skills and knowledge they will need for the future.
Romerike International School recognises that, as a community within a community, we have a role to play in making the world kinder, more considerate and engaging for us all.
The school will actively seek out service opportunities and encourage students, teachers and parents to participate.
At Romerike International School we believe that everyone in our community has the right to a positive and safe environment. This is true for students, teachers, parents and anyone else connected to the school. Our aim is to nurture and nourish the 4 forms of wellbeing.
There are 4 forms of wellbeing that we focus on at RIS are:
Our ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle by implementing positive choices relating to sleep, physical activity, diet, and hygiene.
Our ability to manage emotions and moods, thoughts and feelings; to be resilient with emotions and able to adapt and overcome when confronted with stressful situations and unpleasant feelings.
Our ability to develop meaningful relationships, and to create an emotional support network while providing a supportive sense of belonging.
Our ability to control the impact that technology has on our mental, physical and emotional health. Practising good digital wellbeing could include screen time, responses to unwanted information, and being knowledgeable on how your data is stored and used online.
Our curriculum and approaches are designed to support these 4 facets of wellbeing.
Romerike International School will open your eyes to a truly global world of opportunity.
RIS will give our students the chance to engage and to lead in a sustainable world. We will have over 200 students from all over the globe, offering a progressive, research-based curriculum for Grade 1 to Grade 10. Recognising that everyone is unique and by defining individualised learning pathways, we support RIS students in our ever evolving world.
