We at RIS understand the importance of holistic learning and the essence of engaging all aspects of the learner including the mind, body and emotion. With an all-round holistic approach, we aim to inculcate respect for knowledge, community, human connection and the environment. It is important to us that our learners grow up to become well-rounded, respectful individuals who are intelligent, kind and care for their surroundings. We aim to help students grow into the individuals they are and reach their full potential. Apart from academic excellence, we encourage open conversations and help students think for themselves by focusing on aspects such as art and design, personal skills, personality development, sports and effective communication to name a few. We think of art and design through various mediums as integral to learning and understanding the world. It gives us colourful lens to view everything that surrounds us and is a skill that uplifts society. At RIS, we teach our learners to appreciate and enjoy art through various mediums.
At RIS, we believe it is also important to focus on building strong personalities of our learners by giving them the right academic and developmental tools, so as to help them excel in all areas of life. We believe that the core of a strong personality is working towards continuous self-improvement, whether it is inside a classroom or on the playground, and setting goals that push your limits and help you grow. Our teachers focus on each learner, giving them individual attention and helping them develop their own personality through educational and co- curricular activities. We also encourage playing sports as it is important for the physical and mental development of a child, and teaches them lessons in leadership, repetition, patience and team spirit. Our sports rooms are fully equipped with facilities for indoor and outdoor games, encouraging our learners to participate in a sport of their choice.
All our study materials, methods and strategies are designed to equip our young learners with all the necessary skills needed for them to succeed. We also focus on vocational competence, encouraging our learners to be multi-lingual in order to be effective communicators. We also focus on community engagement pedagogies or ‘service learning’ within academic modules. We believe that community is important and always encourage learners to contribute positively towards their community. We continually through words and actions teach our learners the importance of community and its care, with the hope that within aspects of our teaching, our learners grow to be well-rounded, empathetic individuals.
