Another guest speaker shared his experiences and know how as a top coach with some of the ISR students, family and staff. Mr. Christoph Daum, former professional soccer trainer, enlightened us with his speech about Taking Responsibility for Your Life. By sharing his personal experiences, he gave tips on what is needed outside of school to achieve challenging goals: enthusiasm and endurance.
As he often says, “It doesn’t matter how many times you fall down. It matters how quickly you get back up and start running again.”We were also honoured to have Mr. Carsten Ramelow, a former soccer player, introduce Mr. Daum together with Mr. Soliman.
Greek Day was a fun-filled Friday afternoon that brought a multitude of cultures together to celebrate the Greek culture. An action packed program offered a variety of activities, performances, and Greek culinary delicacies. Students were enthralled in the different art workshops that were offered. Creating a mosaic, drawing sketches, and stuffing personally designed pillows kept students and families entertained for hours.
A cooperation of the Greek Elementary School Choir and the ISR’s Choir blew many onlookers away, as children from different nations came together to sing songs in Greek. The Greek Gymnasium Dance Group spread the proud dance tradition and fired up the audience who clapped along to show their support. We also welcomed the talented Leibniz-Gymnasium Theater Group as guest performers.
