Uniforms

Uniforms

The uniform is an important feature of our school as students are the representatives of RIS’ high expectations and standards. Our students’ appearance reflects the respect for the education offered, the school community and also the respect they have for themselves.

Our uniform policy reflects the high standard that we aim to maintain and every student is required to wear a school uniform.

The RIS uniform can be purchased at Zaks, Al Raha Mall. Click here for the online order option.

School Uniform Policy
The school uniform is to be worn during each school day unless special activity days are announced. Children are expected to wear the uniform to and from school. We encourage our students to take pride in their uniforms as a reflection of their pride in the school. Clothes worn underneath the shirts must be plain white or natural-coloured.

All uniform clothing must be purchased from ZAKS clothing shop. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Students should be well groomed, with a neat appearance and a well maintained school uniform.

Shirts and Trousers

• Trousers for MYP students are green, Diploma students are black.
• Uniform shirts are to be worn at all times, even under jumpers, sweaters and sweatshirts.
• Buttons on shirts: All buttons need to be done up appropriately.
