At the new ISR, a new wind is blowing, in all senses of the of the word. The winner of the Audi Zentrum Düsseldorf/Neuss prize contest accepted his big win today. At ISR’s Opening Ceremony in September, individuals could enter a raffle to win a weekend drive in the Audi A3 cabrio/convertible. Mr. H.G. Tressel was the happy winner and looks forward to spending the weekend with the wind in his face as he enjoys the driving the A3 convertible.
ISR student Felix Ehrlich (Grade 12) won the German Championships for glider flying. After competing against other pilots in North Rhine-Westphalia the weekend before, he qualified to take part in the national competition. At the airfield of Breitscheid close to the Hessian border the three best pilots of each “Bundesland” were rated upon their precise flying skills while performing assigned exercises. In three flights every detail was assessed including an on spot landing of the glider.
During last weekend’s Sunflower Festival in Meerbusch-Büderich, ISR students painted the faces of about 70 Meerbusch children. There were a lot of beautiful and happy children on the enjoyable and sunny afternoon.
It was a pleasure for members of our ISR community to be there!
ISR pupils’ art works inspired by classic cars will be displayed at the Classic Remise, Harffstraße 110a, Düsseldorf. The work will feature at the ‘Classic Remise Oldtimer-Herbstfest’ which takes places from the 4th–5th of October. Come and see beautiful Oldtimers and beautiful art pieces of our students in a nice and modern ambiente of the Meilenwerk Düsseldorf.
This week the Krocky-Mobil visited our school for the 10th time. The Krocky-mobil is a crocodile-themed van owned by a local dentist, who makes regular visits to ISR to check kids’ dental health. The 3rd and 4th grades were introduced to important aspects of dental health through having their teeth examined, interactive demonstrations and discussions. For example, the students learned how proper sitting posture can help teeth stay healthy and straight throughout their lives. The “tooth disco” was again a special hit, which focused on the effectives of brushing your teeth.
We thank the Kieferorthopädische Praxis Dr. Fleddermann for bringing dental health and orthodontic care to our children to prevent future dental problems.
