Spotlight On Our Student Clara

Clara, Grade 6, is a wonderful example of a student with a strong sense of autonomy and determination to succeed. Her teacher from last year, Mr. Foy, says for one so young, she articulates herself extremely effectively and structures and justifies her arguments with skill. “She can often be found using her talents to try and talk me out of giving English homework!”

He also says Clara is incredibly strong-willed and is a perfect example of an empowered young woman, who uses her extensive capabilities to call out and stand up to inequality and intolerance in her surroundings. “Despite how much I enjoy the endless debates I have with Clara, what I admire most about her is how systematically reflective she is with regards to her learning. She embraces challenges and is consistently looking for the next improvement in her development and this is the most defining and impressive aspect of her character. I will be sad not to teach her in the future but look forward to her putting the world to rights in the not-to-distant future”.

Clara is also a very talented athlete. She has a strong personality and a competitive attitude. Her PE Teacher, Ms. Racheva, says Clara is always on top, trying her best and definitely is a role model and a great example of “Never Ever Give Up”. Tennis is her passion and she has already won several tournaments in school and at her tennis club.

We all love Clara’s smile and motivation to be the best in school, in sports, and last but not least as a friend.

We are proud to spotlight Clara, 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.
