About us

Directores Welcome

Dear Parents,

The vision of Rapale International School is to nurture young people to think, speak and act from a God saturated world view. Each day as I watch children arrive at school, I am reminded of the awesome privilege we have of moulding and shaping these lives. Walking around and listening to the chatter of children and teachers one can often hear scriptures from God’s word and songs of praise to him. With this as a platform, the academic, emotional, social and physical training, children can be prepared to face the challenges of this modern world.

At RIS we aim to provide a safe and happy learning environment where teachers and children can develop wholesome relationships with one another and with their creator God. We trust your child’s journey through RIS will be a long and happy one preparing them for the journey God has planned for them.

Our Benefits

The teachers of RIS are a team of motivated and enthusiastic people with a passion for seeing children grow in Godly character as they develop the children academically, emotionally, physically and socially.


 At RIS we believe that teaching a child to swim is a lifesaving skill that every child deserves to know. Not only will this skill save their life but it is also a source of enjoyment. Each class has a swimming lesson once a week.


Once a week the children participate in an activity ranging from Girl Guides to table tennis. The choice of activities change every term. These activities change every term to give diversity.

Once a year the school hosts the following events:

  • Christmas Carols
  • Easter Event
  • Play
  • Project Fair: Famous people, International Evening, Design and Technology Fair
  • Fun Family Days
  • Dia da Criança
  • Cross-Country
  • Athletics
  • Gala
