Everyone has inside of him a piece of good news. The good news is that you don’t know how great you can be! How much you can love! What you can accomplish! And what your potential is!”
-Anne Frank (aged 14 years) from ‘The Diary of a Young Girl’

Echoing the same sentiments, we at RGS Indonesia, endeavour to raise happy, positive and balanced students and guide them to realize their highest potential.

We are committed to providing holistic education to the students under our care and in moulding them into learners for life. Our aim is to create curious, enquiring minds who eagerly explore ideas and concepts and can communicate them confidently and effectively. By providing them varied experiences and perspectives, we hope to develop our students into global citizens who appreciate differences and will nurture the planet and create a peaceful world. Our integration of values and morals into the everyday curriculum validates the emphasis we lay on creating principled citizens of the country. An amalgamation of the traditional with the modern, RGS Indonesia stands as an institution of excellence where children learn and grow in the happy environment of the school every day.

History

The Rama Global School is a day-cum-residential Global School located on the shores of Lake Jatiluhur in Purwakarta, about 100 km from Jakarta. It has been developed along the lines of the best schools and is committed to providing an all-round education of the highest standards. The school has been set up by the Rama International School Foundation through the initiative taken by PT. Indorama Synthetics.

Vision & Mission

The motto of the Rama Global School, “In Pursuit of Excellence”, is the underlying goal of the curriculum at the school. The school concentrates on both academic and co-curricular programmes so that students receive a wide canvas of educational enrichment in their formative stages to enable them to develop their unique talents and interests. The school will provide all students every opportunity to discover themselves and prepare them for their responsibilities as citizens of a new millennium. Rama Global School aims at the holistic development of a student with great emphasis on the spiritual, emotional, intellectual and physical integrity so that the student can face this challenging world without fear. At RGS, this holistic development of an individual is attained through academic excellence, professional competence, personal, interpersonal and societal skills.

Objective

The school aims to achieve the following:

  • To impart academic excellence and prepare students for entry into universities in India, The United States of America, Canada, The United Kingdom, and Australia in a trans-Asian flexible environment.
  • To provide outstanding teaching resources such that students experience all-round academic, intellectual, social, cultural, ethical, physical, and emotional development, through a well-rounded curriculum.
  • To impart the right values to students, including teamwork, self-motivation, sensitivity and practical applied learning.
  • To encourage students to develop a sense of community responsibility toward the host country Indonesia, and to the world as a whole.

 

School System

Houses

The House system is a feature common to most schools. It has got great advantages like breaking a large community into smaller, more personal units, and thereby building a sense of loyalty and competition. Its function is to encourage healthy competition within school and to give all students the opportunity to participate in representative sport, music, and other activities with the aim of raising self-esteem, developing self-confidence, and giving opportunities for leadership and teamwork.

The House System at Rama Global School doesn’t simply present the opportunity for healthy competition within an enjoyable, highly stimulating atmosphere. It also provides a nurturing ‘family unit’ that instills a genuine sense of belonging, encourages mutual respect between pupils of different ages, builds positive esteem and helps reinforce a sense of consideration for others.

Add the opportunity to earn ‘House Points’ for academic achievement, sporting prowess, drama, debating, music, community spirit, and all manner of other activities and our House System is well-recognized as providing a respected platform for showcasing attainment.

The students of the school are allotted to one of the three Houses, namely Endurance, Enterprise, and Endeavor. Each House is placed under a House In-charge who is directly responsible for the discipline and general well-being of the members of the House. Elected House Captains and Vice Captains share the responsibilities with the House In-charges.

Regular Inter-House competitions are held throughout the year in various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities which foster a healthy competitive spirit. The House vie with one another to keep the House flag aloft.

 

School Council

The School Council is a body of elected students meant to represent the views and opinions of all the students of the school. In other words, it is an exercise in empowering the students to lead, decide and work as a team for school initiatives.

 

School Captain

A democratic style of election is conducted to elect the School Captain. The initiatives and capabilities of the individual students are continuously watched and those with inherent or cultivated leadership qualities are nominated to the panel of candidates. Students’ affairs are managed by the elected School Captain who acts as the link between the school authority and the students’ community.

 

School Crest

The school crest, though simple, is evocative and powerful. A flaming torch in the centre reminds all pupils that we should perpetually bear in mind the burning passion for excellence in all we do.
