Our Grade 11 IB CP students recently participated in a highly beneficial unit on Effective Communication as part of the IB Career-Related Programme. Students developed essential communication skills through engaging activities and real-life scenarios, leaving the unit feeling more confident in communicating effectively.
The Foundation Years consist of Grades 6, 7 and 8. This is a very exciting and precious time in a young person’s life. It is also a period of transition as students move into secondary school and adolescence.
The Middle Years, Grades 9 and 10, are an exciting period of a student’s academic, personal and social development. They form both a natural progression from the RISS Foundation Years and an excellent preparation for the RISS IB DP/CP programmes or other pathways of study and work.
The Senior Years, Grades 11 and 12, are a time of incredible value and progress in our student's social, intellectual and moral development. Our students are encouraged by our holistic yet challenging academic programmes to become truly responsible internationally minded students.
