Richards Bay Christian School (RBCS) High School

In 1999 Richards Bay Christian School RBCS started the transition from ACE to IEB and in 2000 the students completed the ACE Matric exams while also being the first students to write the government matric exams. 

In 2005 the first RBCS matric class wrote their first IEB examinations, achieving a pass a 100% pass rate.

At RBCS we encourage students’ academic and spiritual growth every step of the way on their educational journey of discovering their personal destinies.

RBCS, as an independent school, writes the IEB final examinations. The standards set by the IEB have been benchmarked internationally. We offer a challenging curriculum with a wide range of subjects, which cater for individual academic needs.

Leadership Portfolios

Student leadership development is all about equipping leaders of God’s Kingdom for whatever capacity they choose to use by enhancing student involvement. We do this through leadership opportunities and experiences for grade 8-12 students that allow them to apply skills in the context of interest areas, gifts and talents.

Key functions challenge leaders at every level of experience to make their impact life-changing:

  • Mentoring: Student groups comprising a mix of grade levels help one another to understand, internalize, and practice core values.

  • Leading group discussion: Facilitate ‘Discovery Bible Study’ to develop Biblical worldview.

  • Appreciate diversity: Learning to listen for difference of opinion, communicate effectively, and find integrative solutions.

  • Team Collaboration: Strengthen others, making each person feel capable.

  • Creating a Culture of Innovation: Encourage new and creative idea sharing.

  • Contribute to RBCS community outreach projects: Educational development of rural daycares and training of caregivers.

“Christian Innovation is when thinking Christians purposefully align ideas and actions with God’s purposes and methods to affect change creatively (Oster, 2011).”

All matrics are considered student leaders and take responsibility to assist staff with duties that ensure that students honour the Code of Conduct. Portfolio leaders are elected by Grade 10-12 students, and relevant staff. They serve in any one of the following categories:

Outreach, Audio-Visual, Worship, Media, Décor, Sport, Hospitality, Photography, Science, Dance and Drama and Entrepreneurship.
