On Saturday, 14th October we hosted another fantastic Open House event with over 500 guests. ISR partners, interested families, and friends attended a wide range of demo lessons, learned about our in-school University & Career Counseling (UCC) services, visited the multi-lingual information presentations about the school program and obtained a general overview of ISR through the student-led guided school tours.
Last Friday our boys’ football team (date of birth: 2002–2004), led by our new coach Karsten Baumann, finished 3rd out of 10 competing teams at the school area championship. This is a very good start considering that it is the first time we participated in this competition. Well done boys!
Last Saturday 7th October, 41 ISR students were in running action at the Neuss Schools Cross Country Running Championships! Each and every ISR student was able to push themselves and rise to the challenge! Students ran a distance depending on their age: 400m, 600m or 1.000m. A special mention to the following students for their top-3 placings: Ruben H. 1st M9, Ben O. 1st M10, Merlin R. 1st M11 Richard E. 2nd M11, Karim J. 3rd M12.
The magazine of FAWCO, an international women’s non-governmental organization, that comprises 64 independent volunteer clubs and associations in 34 countries worldwide, has spotlighted our first grade teacher Megan Morris. Megan is also the editor of the magazine of our partner, the “American Women’s Club of Düsseldorf”.
Last Friday all our students and staff wore blue to STOMP OUT BULLYING! All students and staff were encouraged to take a stand against bullying and promote peaceful and respectful friendships at ISR.
And keep in mind our upcoming OKTOBERFEST SPIRIT DAY on Friday, 6th October! The SLO® Outreach Department is excited to present our 1st Spirit Day of the year: OKTOBERFEST. Get out your dirndls and lederhosen and join the ISR community for a fun and festive day – this Friday!
In order to provide our students a comprehensive overview on the variety of university offers worldwide, we not only have a dedicated University und Career Counselling (UCC) team, but we also invite representatives of international universities to visit our students. On Monday, 25th September we were honoured to welcome representatives of Warwick University as well as the University of Leeds.
This year too, the Dorfstraße in Meerbusch was decorated with splendid sunflowers in celebration of Sonnenblumenfest.
Visitors could shop, enjoy culinary delights as well as the entertaining stage shows. Many were delighted to see our mascot Spirit distributing sunflowers along with his ISR companions. Our American school bus was the venue for fun activities such as face painting, glitter tattoos or painting sunflowers on marmalade jars. The visitors were musically entertained not only by the talented musicians of Musicbox Oxana, but also by our very own ISR Choir.
