Richards Bay Christian School (RBCS) High School

Richards Bay Christian School (RBCS), as an independent school, writes the Independent Examinations Board (IEB) final examinations. We offer a challenging curriculum with a wide range of subjects, which cater for individual academic needs and meet the internationally benchmarked standards set by the IEB.

RBCS originally followed Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) and in 1999 RBCS started the transition to IEB. In 2005 the first RBCS matric classes wrote their IEB examinations, achieving a 100% pass rate.

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

We embrace the benefits of the digital age and have a fully wireless campus. Our high school students each have a personal school email address, make use of the miEbooks e-learning application where staff can post extra resources, and are encouraged to use electronic textbooks. This harnesses information technology to add a technical dimension to learning.

Leadership Portfolios

At the start of each academic year, students get to choose which leadership portfolio they would like to serve in for the year. 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.
