Sheikh Rashid Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

It was with great sadness that we received the news of the death of Sheikh Rashid Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the son of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Ruler of Dubai.

Rashid had been a student at RSB and was therefore known to many of us at the school.  He will be remembered by his teachers as a talented sportsman and an able young man.

We send our deepest condolences to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed and to all Rashid's family and friends.

Eid Holiday

Rashid School will be closed on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th September 2015 for the Eid Al Adha holiday.

My very best wishes to all parents, students and friends of the school; Eid Mubarak.

Primary Certificates on website

Each Thursday around 25 of our Primary students receive certificates in our weekly assemblies.  Students and parents can now view and print these by going to the 'Primary' page on this website and then following the link for pupil certificates.

Well done to all our certificate winners.

Welcome to a new school year

I am delighted to welcome staff and students to a new year at RSB.  Our returning staff and students have had a great start to the school year and our new boys and teachers have also quickly become valued members of the school community.

We have many developments and activities planned for the months ahead and I look forward to keeping you up-to-date with life at Rashid School throughout the year.

Fit for life week

This week has seen a wide range of healthy activities in our Primary Section as we focus on health and fitness.  Parents, staff and students have been exercising, running, walking and sharing the best ideas to promote a healthy lifestyle.  The week started and ended to two 'Wake Up, Shake Up' assemblies, organised by PE staff Mr Ben and Mr Dean.

Healthy eating and healthy living are key parts of our school curriculum.

Year 8 tour Dubai

This week our Year 8 students took part in a Dubai travel challenge.  Following clues, groups of students had to show VIP guests round Dubai using public transport.  During the day they used buses, the Metro and water taxis (abras), as well as a good deal of walking.

The day was rounded off with an overnight desert camp, where the boys cooked their own food, talked and relaxed well into the night.  These activities show our students parts of Dubai that many have not visited and it gives them the skills and confidence to use public transport.
