Lunchtime is more than eating - it means learning good lifestyle habits whilst socialising. There are three canteens for different age groups that serve nutritious meals using organic and seasonal produce.
Special attention is given to varied menus, based on a balanced three-course lunch, catering to dietary, religious and ethical requirements. We encourage students to try different dishes and appreciate the diversity of food and ingredients.
We promote an active lifestyle and believe that eating healthily is essential to students' well-being.
Together with our partner CIR Food, a dedicated team of nutritionists and chefs prepare special diets, sauces and main courses, and all pasta and rice dishes are freshly cooked on-site.
Bus & Shuttle service
Our school bus and shuttle service are a great solution for students and parents as they meet the highest safety standards and ensure an efficient journey to and from school.
There are a variety of bus/shuttle routes and lines that cater to different ages and entry/exit times.
As an Eco-School we are committed to raising awareness and implementing ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
Under the Green Fees scheme, the school pays a contribution towards the cost of the transport service, directly to the school’s transport provider.
These transport options are provided by Todde Bus who is responsible for organising and operating the service and ensures favourable rates for RIS families.
HEALTH AND WELL-BEING
An on-site First Aid Officer is available full-time for all students and takes an active role in the individual health and well-being of every student.
A School Doctor visits once-a-week and is responsible for the health and well being of our students. She monitors the medical needs of individual children e.g. allergies, infection control and contagious illnesses etc. Informal medical examinations and checks can be arranged on parental request.
In addition, our counselling service (in partnership with LUISS University) offers confidential advice and support to any student who needs it.
PRE AND POST SCHOOL CARE
Parents can rest assured that their children will be supervised by experienced staff in a comfortable environment before starting their first lesson of the day or after a full day at school.
Pre and post school assistance is available for those students that need to be at school before 08.30 or remain on the school premises after 15.45 (Nursery to Grade 6), and after 16.05 (Grade 7 to 11).
