RIS has a rich tradition of constituting student council that gives students an opportunity to develop leadership by shouldering responsibilities and carrying out school activities. They plan events that contribute to school spirit and community welfare. Student council is synonymous to House System that fosters a spirit of co- operation and healthy competition. House system where the potential of each child is capitalized upon.
To inspire a healthy sense of competition, students of Raj International School have been allocated one of the four houses which symbolize the school’s values. Students develop a sense of belonging and a feeling of unity in being a part of a specific house.
We have four houses namely. . .
- ARJUNA – Blue House
