Spotlight On Our Student Filippa

Our this week’s Spotlight is our first grader Filippa. This is what her teacher, Ms Adrienne Stening-Smith, said about her: Filippa is incredibly kind, caring and loving, to both her fellow students and teachers. I found a quote that describes her perfectly… Do things for people not because of what they do in return, but because of who you are. – Harold S. Kushner.

She has an enormous heart filled with so much love. She always thinks of the students and puts them before her. She shares and always makes delicious treats for our class. She is an exceptional example to what I believe the definition of kindness is. For example, on Valentine’s Day she handmade some cakes for her fellow students. She also brought a lollipop for each one of the students in our class who are unable to eat gluten due to an intolerance.

Filippa has also helped another student in her class. This particular student battles with low self-confidence and Filippa is always there building him up and encouraging him. Because of her help, he has grown so much!

We are proud to spotlight Filippa, one of many of ISR’s outstanding students!

Our “Student Spotlight” project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, “Staying Ahead”. No matter if academic achievements, special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
