RVIS Community Co-Creates the Future

Oct-10-2018
On Saturday, October 6, parents, students and teachers came together for a Community Mission Review. We engaged in a design thinking exercise that allowed us to share ideas around several key questions:

How do we know we are strong; what do we already do that is innovative, valuable and distinctive?

What is our vision for the next five years?

What will our students need for the future; what questions must we ask ourselves as we plan forward?

After sharing ideas and discussing these questions, we defined our key priorities as a school: personalization in all that we do – learning, identity, and community.

The mission review process stemmed from our strategic planning journey that RVIS has engaged in over the past 18 months. From this process, we developed four strategic goals. In addition, the need for clarity and consistency emerged, hence why we have engaged in a robust mission review process.

The group finished the morning ideating ideas and writing a prototype based on input from stakeholders across the community. We have asked our students and teachers to review the prototypes and provide feedback and new ideas. After this, our mission writing team will meet to draft our final statement.

Mission review is an exciting process of redefining identity and committing to what matters most. We thank everyone for their passionate engagement to this process. We will plan a launch in early 2019.

Strong Arabic Results at Riffa Views International School
Jo Garrahy - Assistant Superintendent
Oct-10-2018
As Riffa Views International School (RVIS) starts the 2018-19 school year, the school’s ongoing commitment to its Arabic program has continued to show significant growth in student achievement. This growth and high achievement is reflected in the school’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IBDP), results. In all three graduating classes, 2016, 2017 and 2018, RVIS students in the IB Arabic Ab Initio and Arabic Higher Level program achieved above world averages. In the most recent IBDP examinations, 89% of students received a score of 5, 6, or 7 points (on the 1-7 scale).

IB Arabic teacher, Ms. Dima Abu Sinneh, commented, "one of the reasons for the high achievement by students in the IBDP is the one-to-one attention that the small class sizes at RVIS afford.” Ms. Abu Sinneh also shared that she and her other IB colleagues, commit to ongoing communication with families to ensure students receive feedback, remain on track, and are achieving results at the level they are capable of. Ms. Abu Sinneh believes it is the relationships with students and the passion that the teacher brings to the subject that make the biggest difference in learning.

RVIS Arabic, Citizenship and Islamic Studies Leader, Mr. Fuad Al Anzarouti, joined the school at the start of 2017-18 academic year and continues to play an instrumental role in the growth of the combined program. With 21 years of experience in schools in Bahrain, and 17 years prior to that in the UAE, Mr. Al Anzarouti brings a wealth of knowledge to RVIS. When asked what impresses him most about the Arabic program at RVIS, Mr Al Anzarouti states, “it is the commitment by teachers to seek continual improvement and the high expectations they hold for themselves and their students.”

These Arabic results could not have been achieved without a strong foundation in the years leading up to the IBDP program. Starting in Pre-K, students receive leveled Arabic instruction that exceeds the Ministry of Education’s requirements. This dedicated instructional time, coupled with the highly-qualified department demonstrates RVIS’ commitment to students receiving all of the benefits of a strong international education, while at the same time nurturing an affinity to the Arabic language and the culture of Bahrain.

After our huge success at International Dot Day, RVIS joined millions of people around the globe in celebrating the International Day of Peace. It is celebrated on September 21 each year to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire – personal or political. “The theme for 2018 was The Right to Peace - The Universal Declaration of Human Rights at 70”. Our students and teachers all dressed up in white to honor this day. Elementary school held a wonderful assembly to showcase their ideas for peace where student perspectives centered on kindness and care for others. Ms Kasey Burns and 5th Grade Red Hats encouraged students to think about ways in which we can promote peace- both inside and outside our school. Our secondary students discussed rights and responsibilities to promote peace as individuals in accordance with this year’s theme, which allowed for self reflection.




They engaged in specific lessons that were centered on world peace to learn more about the history of this event. RVIS is also taking part in the popular Peace Day Google Doodle global competition where our students will share their designs and ideas on peace worldwide. Look out for our pictures and designs on #PeaceDayGoogleDoodle!!

Celebrating 10 years of excellence & growth, Riffa Views International School is happy to announce the opening of THE LEARNING COMMONS right in the heart of the school! Formerly the elementary library space, Mr. Pink and his team have transformed the wide open area into a welcoming gathering space for all to explore. We have expanded regular class visits to include 6th, 7th, and 8th grades, in addition to the Nursery through 5th grade visits from past years. Parents are welcome to browse and enjoy our comfortable space as well. Come see the full shelves, and check out something to read!

The Learning Commons design features pockets of "cave", "campfire", and "watering hole" type spaces for students and adults to take advantage of. Whether studying for an upcoming test in the Quiet Study (“cave”), presenting their knowledge of Flipgrid to classmates on the Big Screen PC (“campfire”), or chatting with friends over Algebra homework in the Open Spaces (“watering hole”), the needs of our community are now being met!

Our new Learning Commons is intended to be an extension of EVERY teacher's classroom, with scheduling times available for individual students, whole class visits, or equipment "rental" (such as iPad carts or podcast recording materials.) The Learning Commons staff is always around to help and engage with students and parents throughout the day. Watch our space develop as we incorporate 3D printing, coding, and virtual reality stations for students to explore and share their learning!


Webpage Link: http://rvislibrary.follettdestiny.com

In January we have our New Book Order - suggestions are welcome!

The RVIS Learning Commons is a learner-centered gathering space that celebrates innovation, creativity, and literacy through exploratory learning.

Learning Commons Guiding Statements

On 16th September 2018, the Riffa Views International School community added their fingerprints to a mural in the breezeway to create a tree that represents our community and the value each member adds.

Everyone forms a point or a “dot” of this large tree, which could not have been completed without the participation of everyone; this was one of the messages that the school aimed to deliver to the students on the International Dot Day.

Now, the mural represents a sense of belonging and accomplishment for all community members. Each passerby tries to find his/her "dot" in a tree full of fingerprints, and also recalls the sense of belonging to the Riffa Views international community.

Inspired by the message of creativity, collaboration and connection in Peter H. Reynolds' book The Dot, RVIS joined over 10 million people in 170 countries to celebrate International Dot Day on September 16th. Students, faculty and staff had opportunities throughout the day to celebrate Dot Day. In Ms. Cerro's elementary art classes, students were inspired by Wassily Kandinsky (a famous Russian artist) to create their own unique dots. Students then joined their dots together to make one large collaborative art piece, which is on display in the elementary Cafetorium. During advisory, secondary students discussed the meaning of Dot Day and were given the opportunity to create their own dots, which are on display outside the secondary office. Students, faculty, and staff throughout the school took part in a world-wide Flipgrid (a video discussion platform) by responding to the question, “How do you make your mark on the world?” They also shared their answers to this question on displays outside of the Learning Commons. Ms. Zainab helped RVIS students in nursery through 12th grade to create a collaborative mural in the breezeway representing how each student makes their mark at RVIS. These are just a few of the exciting activities students, faculty and staff participated in to celebrate creativity and making a positive mark on the world!

The students at Riffa Views International School had the opportunity to showcase their musical talents at the End of Year Musical Performances earlier this month. Throughout the year, Melissa Davis, the Music Teacher at RVIS, introduces students to different styles of music, a wide-range of musical instruments, and a host of other essential skills to develop their musical talents. Like all of the specialist subjects at RVIS, the music program enriches the academic programs and frames a creative outlet for RVIS students.

Hosting four grade level shows over two days, Ms. Davis and her student musicians performed to a live parent audience in the school’s Cafetorium. The Pre-K and Kindergarten classes captured the audience with their energy and the sheer joy that comes from singing at that age. The Grade 1 and 2 students took a literacy approach and sang songs related to books they have read during the year. Grade 3 put their voices aside and mesmerized the audience with the smooth sounds of the recorder. While Grade 4 explored the 100 plus years of Jazz history through a number of songs that had the audience moving in their seats. Finally, the Grade 5 students paid tribute to The Beatles and their influential music that has been captivating audiences for over 60 years.

These wide-ranging performances demonstrate the comprehensiveness of the Music Program, and the mastery Ms. Davis brings to the department. A proud parent admiring his daughter from the back row stated, “The smiles and enthusiasm on each and every face shows the confidence and knowledge the students have gained over the year through the music program. She [Ms. Davis] really has a gift and we are lucky to have her.”

For 10 years Riffa Views International School (RVIS) has been a beacon of excellence in Bahrain, providing a unique learning experience for each of its students. At the culmination of its 10th year, RVIS has conferred its third set of high school diplomas to students who are about to embark on a new chapter in life.

The major awards went to Salman Algosaibi for “exemplifying the RVIS mission statement, his dedication to service, and his successful pursuit of the full International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Diploma,” stated the founding School Director and International School Services (ISS) Representative Bruce McWilliams as he presented the award. The Valedictorian was awarded to Dana Barhoom, who earned the highest GPA in the graduating class. Ms. Barhoom took the time to thank the faculty and parents for all their support during their years at RVIS, “our success is your success, for you have given us the courage to dare and knowledge to excel, you have given us the hope when everything felt crumbling, for you have given us the believe that we could succeed.”

An RVIS faculty member close to the graduates reflected, “It has been a pleasure watching these thirteen graduates prepare for this day. Through all the stumbles and triumphs, they have always remained a close groups of friends. As a school, we are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to seeing what the future has in store for them.”

With the diplomas conferred and tassels moved from left to right, the members of the Class of 2018 is about to embark on life’s next adventure with the confidence, skills, and the wisdom to pursue their own unique journey.

Riffa Views International School (RVIS) partners with local and international fundraising groups to support communities in need and help our student become global citizens. Recently, artwork created by RVIS students was selected to be auctioned off in the 2018 Sovereign Art Foundation. With a focus on improving education and healthcare for orphans in Bahrain, students at RVIS were excited for the opportunity to participate. Fourteen RVIS students from grades 1 to 11 submitted 16 pieces to the art exhibition. During the month of April, these students along with 300 others participated in the exhibition held at The Avenues Mall.

Three students were recognized for their exceptional talents and had their pieces auctioned off during the Gala Dinner earlier this month. Jediel Ponnudurai a grade 11 student won first place in his category and received a 500 BD prize. His piece raised 3,100 BD for the foundation. Maryam Khasawneh, grade 9, and Aisha Sayed grade 6 also had art pieces silent auctioned off at the Gala Dinner. “To have our student be able to contribute to such a good cause is an honor for the RVIS Art Department. Events like these help students understand the power they have to affect change in the lives of others. We look forward to contributing more artwork in the future to such a noble cause,” stated Heather Meinen an Art Teacher at RVIS.

Each student who participated in the exhibition will be recognized for their contribution after the Eid holiday. The art contributed by RVIS and fourteen other schools and four universities raised 484,668 BD, all of which will go towards enriching the lives of children in Bahrain.

Arts Week wraps up with masterpieces and some big performances. The week of April 22nd celebrated the many talented artists in the RVIS community. Throughout the week students and staff dressed in their primary and secondary colors, and altered their appearance to resemble a famous artist from history. Of course, Arts Week would not be complete without a culminating art show and the annual RVIS’ Got Talent put on by the school’s very talented Art and Music Departments. The Art Show started the evening and consisted of works from grades K-12, covering a range of different artistic mediums. Visitors had the opportunity to discuss pieces of work with the artists, explore the creative talents of the RVIS sculptors, and enjoy the various 2 and 3 dimensional art that filled the secondary hallways. In summarizing the event for the Art Department, Ms. Meinen said, “The Art Department is so proud of all of the students and the work they put into their projects this year. We hope students will continue to build their skills towards being successful in the IB Visual Arts Program.” The wonder and the talent did not end with the closing of the Art Show. Moving into the second part of the evening, the community had the opportunity to experience the talents of the students at RVIS. With a total of thirty students from grade one to twelve participating in this two hour event, the crowd experienced a wide range of talents. Acts included singing, dancing, piano, violin, clarinet, drumming, painting, and science that left the audience in awe. A audience member noted the wide-ranging talents at RVIS stating, “These events really showcase the variety of talents at the school. To have so many talented students willing to perform to such a large audience demonstrates the strength of RVIS’s programming and the confidence that it instills in the students.” As always the RVIS faculty and staff showed off their talents with the final act of the night. The audience was taken through the Evolution of Dance starting with the Conga and finishing strong with a little Flossing. Breathless from the dance act, Ms. Davis, the Music Teacher and organizer of the event, expressed her appreciation for the students' hard work and to the community for coming to the event, “The kids did an amazing job in the show. All of their hard work and practice really paid off! I would also like to thank the community for coming out and supporting the arts at RVIS!”

Riffa Views International School is dedicated to empowering students and encouraging them to contribute to the school environment. When Healthy Calorie approached the Art Department to develop a mural for the secondary cafeteria, Mrs. Meinen and Mrs. Yung naturally turned to the talents of the high school students to develop potential designs. Each design was to incorporate the values of Healthy Calorie and the branding of RVIS to represent the partnership between the two entities.

After a rigorous selection process, the top five designs were presented to a panel of judges who made the final decision. A member of the panel summarized the process, “Each design was well thought out and represented elements of both RVIS and Healthy Calorie. Although the decision was difficult, the panel chose the design that incorporated elements of the school’s architecture, which demonstrated the artist’s ability to conceptualize her design within the greater context of the school.”

During RVIS’s Week of Action, the winner, Yasmine in Grade 10, led a group of students and teachers to complete the mural in under five days. Yasmine was excited about being chosen and reflected, “In all honesty, with the extremely promising designs that I was competing against, I was more than happy that my illustration was chosen.” She went on to say, “I was pretty glad we had most of secondary taking part in the overall piece. It allowed differing perspectives to contribute to the end product, and now I feel like the project has a personal connection to the school since so many students pitched in to create it.”

This collaborative process has empowered students to be positive contributors of the school, and allowed them to express their creativity to the community and beyond!

Last week on Wednesday, April 18th, the RVIS Badminton Team participated in it's last tournament of the year at St. Christopher's. Three boys and three girls were selected to represent the school in a mixed doubles competition.

With over thirty talented and well-trained athletes, RVIS entered the competition with an uphill battle. Despite not having as strong of a tradition in the sport as the other schools, the students were not deterred. Despite trying odds, and not having home court advantage, mixed team Shirel Ponnudarai and Fahad Al Madhi victoriously took 1st place in their division. Shirel stated afterwards, "I didn't know if we could do it, but I trusted my teammate and the W's kept coming. Before we knew it, we had won every match.” Fahad responded, "This is the best day of my life. I've worked so hard for just this moment in my life."

With silver medals around their necks, Max Kircher & his partner Mena Amin Naem were proud to have placed 2nd amongst the formative competition. Jediel Ponnudarai and his partner Pallavi Narra played well against impossible odds. Despite Jediel having won first place the previous week in singles, and Pallavi showing incredible skills, both noted that their opponents seemed “at least 8 feet tall and wielded mechanical arms.” They both vowed that they would train even harder for tournament next year. Also gaining valuable tournament experience through several well fought matches were Sheraz Saudagar and Zara Waheed.

The RVIS Badminton Team is celebrating some success and great progress this year. Please congratulate them as you see them.

OASIS League Track and Field Event

RVIS was fortunate this year to have two students participate in the OASIS Track and Field Event from the 19th to 21st of April. The coaches and participants celebrated some big accomplishments over the weekend to help advance RVIS’s Athletics program and its reputation in the league. Noor, a Grade 10 student was awarded the bronze medal in the Shot Put with a new personal best of 7.1m, and a silver medal in the Discus with a throw of 15.65m. Her efforts in the discus also broke a school record! Coaches Cami, Angela, Mags, and Jelena worked tirelessly with the students through the season and hope to see the track and field teams grow in the future.

RVIS takes learning beyond the classroom to prepare our students for tomorrow’s world

Helping students to see beyond the classroom is an important aspect of the educational experience at RVIS. Whether our students are participating in local service projects, or taking field trips to successful businesses, RVIS students are getting a taste of life outside of school.

On April 24th, RVIS launched a new event that furthered its commitment to experiential learning with its first ever Career Fair. Through the coordinated efforts of the RVIS School Counselors, Hanadi Rustam and Brita Nash, this extraordinary event connected RVIS students with the working professionals in Bahrain. “The purpose of the Career Fair was for students to learn about the many career options that are available to them when they graduate from university. Also this was an opportunity for students to find out what educational background will help them pursue various careers. With twenty-two different professionals from various fields, students had the chance to learn about traditional and nontraditional occupations,” stated Ms. Hanadi.

These twenty-two professionals filled the secondary cafeteria, armed with a lifetime of knowledge and a passion for their career. Students conversed with attorneys, filmmakers, restaurant owners, makeup artist and a host of other career volunteers. Ms. Fakhor, a career volunteer enjoyed the fair and sees the value in these type of authentic learning experiences, “Events such as Career Day serve to connect students to the community and to provide purpose and relevance to learning. I had many a wonderful discussion with the students who displayed curiosity, thoughtfulness and wisdom. I look forward to spending more time with the students at future events.”

Through the strong partnership between RVIS and its community, the school is able to organize these events and continue to provide and education second to none in Bahrain. Thank you to all the volunteers for making the time to enhance the school environment, and a special thank you to the parent volunteers for their continued support in the school.

RVIS Celebrates its Rich Diversity!

Before the Spring Break, RVIS held its annual International Day to celebrate the over 50 nationalities that are represented in the school. Families proudly displayed their country’s flag during the Parade of Nations and enjoyed the wonderful cultural displays with traditional wears and delicious food to taste. Singing and dancing filled the gym for over two hours with a Saudi Arabian Band singing traditional songs while students and parents participated in sword dancing.

A true highlight was the support the event received from the families of RVIS and the Parent Teacher Partnership. With their help, the RVIS community was able experience a true international event that not only represents its multicultural community, but also the culture of giving that we instill in the students. “These events remind me of why I bring my children to RVIS. The rich cultural experience and the supportive community are second to none in Bahrain,” stated a parent of an early childhood student.

Wrapping up the day’s events was a conglomerate of food from all over the world - pizza, shawarma, breads, rice dishes, sandwiches, and of course the desserts filled the bellies of the RVIS community. The leftover food was then donated to families in need around Bahrain.

The small community at RVIS continues to celebrate a rich culture, full of diversity, caring people, and a true sense of internationalism.
