Riffa Views International School places personalization at the heart of each student's learning journey. Introduced this year by the Secondary School Principal, Ms. LaKecia Denson, the internship program allows RVIS students to experience working in their desired profession. The program was designed for 11th and 12th grade students to help them ignite their passions and decide what to pursue in the future

As students edge closer to graduating from high school, there is a great deal of pressure placed on choosing a specific career path or field of study. The purpose of the internship program is to guide students, “giving them exposure to real world experiences”, said Ms. LaKecia Denson. Emphasis is also placed on providing students with the necessary tools to develop their leadership skills. It is an opportunity to put the knowledge gained from the classroom into practice.

“I chose to do an internship in finance because I was interested in applying what I learned in my IB Business Management class to real life situations… This helped me further develop my passion for the subject” said Adam Zeitoun, a Grade 12 finance intern.

There are a range of programs currently offered by the school, most of them being created by students themselves. Within the school, students are enrolled in internships such as marketing, journalism, finance, videography and education. RVIS has also partnered with organizations outside of the school, including Riffa Views Estates and American University of Bahrain, to widen the range of programs available.

The interns have already made significant progress in their respective fields and have reflected on their experience so far.

Abdullah Alsaleh, a videography intern, said “In the future, I want to make movies and use the camera to make decisions on how I want to present things, and videography is the stepping stone to getting there.” He went on to say that “the internship helped me understand concepts like perseverance, patience and collaborating with others.”

Lujain Attiga, a marketing intern, said “I had previously known that marketing is something I want to pursue in the future. The program taught me that working in marketing means having multiple perspectives at all times and definitely made me even more interested and excited about pursuing my passions.”

The guidance of professionals within a range of fields alongside passionate students has allowed RVIS, a school on the move, to bridge the gap between education and the real world.
