The Festival of Light, commonly known as FOL, is the school show which has evolved into a concert for the Foundation Years and a talent show which is open to the whole school.
We strive to build strong and positive lifetime relationships.
We have the courage to do what is right and to grasp opportunities offered to us all.
We believe in respecting ourselves, others and our world.
We accept responsibility for our actions and the effect they have on those around us.
This past week, RISS students from 10th grade participated in another Erasmus+ module, this time in the central Denmark town of Ikast. RISS students joined others from Denmark, Cyprus, Italy and Germany.
This past weekend many RISS students, from grades 8-12 had the enormous pleasure of attending the biggest 2-day MUN conference ever hosted by our school. There were upwards of 100 students involved, including delegates from Belgium, the Hague and Lek en Linge in the Netherlands.
I aspire to make everyone feel welcome to enjoy their secondary school years while they can.
I am delighted to see that at RISS, we all believe in the power of respect, relationships, courage and the responsibility.
When someone asks me where my “happy place” is, I always tell them it’s when I am in the classroom with my students.
Working with international students is always rewarding. Each child brings their own story to the classroom and we all learn from each other.
Working at an international school is something I have never thought of doing, but it is the best challenge that I have ever taken on. RISS is a school with great opportunities for both students and teachers.
