ISR celebrated ‘STOMP OUT BULLYING DAY’ on Monday, 5th October. Organized by the SLO® (Student Life Organization) Discipline Department, the ISR community was encouraged to wear the color blue to take a visible stand against bullying.
The morning started with a video created by students to bring awareness to bullying in schools, encouraging other students to STAND UP when they see bullying taking place. ISR will share the finalized video with all families once it is done.
Our partner, Classic Remise, celebrated their annual Fall Festival last weekend. Over 10,000 visitors enjoyed the unique presentation of classic cars in an exceptional ambience where exclusive technology, esthetic, and lifestyle made one feel like they travelled back in time. In the midst of 2,500 classic cars, talented young musicians from ISR and Musicbox Oxana played on a Bechstein concert piano and brought classical music to the cars in a class of their own – “classic meets classic.”
SLO® Deputy Head Prefects and Senior Prefects hosted the annual “Lock-In” on Friday, 2nd October. Students arrived at ISR at 8pm with games, sweets, sleeping bags and smiles ready to get “locked in” school overnight! Games in the Sports Hall, a midnight pizza snack, movies, a FIFA tournament, nail painting and even 2 piñatas kept students awake throughout the night! At 8am on Saturday morning parents arrived to collect their sleepy, yet happy, children.
We would like to congratulate Lena Walterscheidt on her most recent accomplishment. She was awarded the “Golden Badge” (“Goldenes Reitabzeichen”) by Lutz Bartsch, chairman of the Rhineland Area Equestrian Association. The Golden Badge is the highest award that a rider can receive in Germany. It cannot be obtained through training courses or a test, but only through success in competitions.
Parents and children alike enjoyed sunshine, happy painted faces, and great conversations at the Sonnenblumenfest in Meerbusch Büderich. Oxana’s Musicbox joined us with their electric drums and set the beat for a great afternoon. Children of all ages could take a turn and let out their inner rock star.
We would like to thank all of the families who stopped by our US bus to say hi and spend time with us. Thank you to all of our artistically talented students who face painted and represented our school. It was great seeing everyone there. We are already looking forward to next year!
ISR families from Grade 7 & 8 students got together last Sunday to go bowling. These Kick-Off parties for the different grades offer the opportunity for parents of old and new students to get together and mingle. Everyone had a lot of fun seeing familiar faces and making new friends.
Thank you to everyone who came out and made it such a wonderful experience!
About 400 members of the ISR community came together and celebrated last Friday, September 4th. This event full of music and classic cars was like none that ISR had ever seen. Let’s Celebrate: success stories of music, cars and education. Michael Becker, director of the Tonhalle Düsseldorf, was excited to cross the river and be a part of a Rhein-Kreis-Neuss event with such talented youth.
