Relations with parents

At RNIS we very much welcome the contribution of our parents in helping to create together the community we envisage and work together to help each child reach their potential. The suggestions, comments and support of the parents are encouraged. To ensure an effective flow of information between the school and the parents, we have many channels of communication in place.

  • Welcome morning for the parents: At the beginning of each school year, we invite all parents to a presentation. Parents have the opportunity of meeting their child’s teachers and are given an outline of the year ahead
  • Parent-teacher meetings are held three times a year. Parents and teachers arrange appointments throughout the year.
  • RNIS also takes advantage of the latest technological developments to enable parents to access their child’s progress remotely as well as contacting the teachers directly on email.

Pastoral care

In RNIS, we do our best to safeguard and promote the welfare of our students in order to develop their full potential and to provide them with a safe and caring environment. We are very conscious that our pastoral care should be in line with our ethos, where respect should be shown to all; teacher to pupil, pupil to teacher as well as pupil to pupil and to the wider community. All our students have an assigned tutor whom they meet regularly to discuss academic and pastoral issues. Also, students in older grades will be mentoring younger students and newcomers, that way everyone feels welcome and supported.

School life

At RNIS, we do our best to ensure each student is enthusiastic, encouraged and looked after both in the classroom and out of it. The school day is very full – lessons, sports, hobbies, co-curricular activities, excursions, conferences, environmental issues, fundraising etc. At RNIS, something is going on all the time and all our students are involved in many different areas that keep them busy, make them happy and not least important having fun. We believe that happy students make for successful students.

At RNIS, there are cultural and educational trips organized throughout the school year. These trips are based on the topic being studied in lessons and reinforce their learning. The excursions vary with each year group and include trips to museums, farms, local industries, historical monuments, theatres and nature reserves.

Students are assigned a classroom called the homeroom in which they meet daily. These assemblies allow the teacher the chance to not only give messages and announcements to all the students and record attendance but more importantly, follow individually on students’ progress and address pastoral duties so the student is cared for. In addition, various themes are addressed and vary throughout the year and include issues such as sharing, social responsibility, recycling, inclusion, bullying, etc. This assembly time forms an integral part of our pastoral care. Students may also have the opportunity to take turns to direct the assembly in a topic in which they have a special interest in. They may also show some of their work, present a short play or report back to the other grades on a recent excursion.

SAT/TOEFL

RNIS is a fully accredited Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) test center offering both students of the school and members of the outside the community the opportunity to sit this test which is used for college admissions in the United States. 

The SAT test measures the literacy and writing skills needed for academic success in college. It is intended to asses analysis and problem solving – skills they learned in school – that they will need in college. The test is administered under a time limit in order produce a range of scores. The SAT consists of three major sections: Critical Reading, Mathematics, and Writing. Each section receives a score on the scale of 200–800.  The test is 3 hours and 45 minutes in length divided into timed sections, with questions ranging from easy, medium and hard.

The test is accepted by many English-speaking academic and professional institutions. TOEFL is one of the two major English-language tests in the world, the other being the IELTS.

The test is four hours in length and scored on a scale of 0 to 120 points and consists of four sections: (Reading, Listening, Speaking, Writing), each measuring one of the basic language skills.
