Spotlight On Our Student Ruiying

Ruiying, Grade 7, started at ISR this school year and has already been a great addition to our school. She loves to play the piano and practices every single moment she has spare time. Even during the holidays, she spends most of her time playing.

Earlier this year, she achieved the first place in the regional music competition “Jugend musiziert”, playing the piano in a duet with her friend Sitong (saxophone), scoring 24 out of 25 points. This qualified her to the state-wide competition where she was second runner-up! Ruiying is also currently working on her own composition work with a group of students. Her music teacher already sees great potential for her future.

In addition, Ruiying is not only a wonderful musician but a great badminton player and a “delightful and a wonderful addition to the Badminton Team” to quote her coach Nikki Johnstone. She is also very involved in our Student Life Organization® and a great friend with a helping hand.

We are proud to spotlight Ruiying, 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.
