Spotlight On Our Student Lisa

Lisa is now in her last year of school and is currently preparing for her IB exams. She is interested in studying Sciences and is taking high level Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. For her IB CAS project, Lisa has continued with the Ocean Cleaning Project, first initiated by her older brother.

During the siblings’ first trip to Egypt, Lisa says she and her brother were shocked by the amount of plastic in the ocean and therefore decided to start removing it. After that, Lisa started to inform herself of plastic’s impact on the environment, animals, and humans. However, as Lisa could not always travel to the beach, she started with several local projects around the Düsseldorf area. One of them at ISR, where she started to inform our younger students about the consequences of plastic pollution.

Ms. Morris, Head of Primary, says “Lisa did a great job spreading awareness throughout primary school. Her presentation was engaging and gave the students a lot to think about regarding how their actions affect the environment. She is promoting environmental awareness throughout the school and is a great example of someone with a great mind and strong character!” Another local project where Lisa is involved is “Gutes Karma für Grevenbroicher”. Recently, she participated at the Rhine Clean-up in Neuss for the second time.

We are proud to spotlight Lisa, 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, striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if its academic success, a special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
