Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Luis

Spotlight On Our Student Luis

Luis, Grade 9, started at ISR in Kindergarten and since then he has continued to enrich the ISR community. He is a wonderful student whose talents reach far beyond the classroom. He has been performing magic shows, not only at ISR events, but also at children’s birthdays and other events for many years. Magic is his great passion and so he enchants his audience with his charming, cheeky, and funny demeanour on stage.

He is also involved in plays and other performances outside of school and feels really comfortable on stage. Luis is a valued member of the ISR community and is always friendly and helpful to his teachers and classmates. Luis always has an open ear for his classmates and is at their side with wise words of advice. Through his empathy, he gives his classmates a secure feeling and is a popular contact person in his class. This young man is far ahead of his age in many respects and we are very proud to be able to highlight him as a positive example today!

We are proud to spotlight Luis, 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.

First Day of School at ISR

First Day of School at ISR

Wednesday, 21 August 2019

Today, we warmly welcomed all ISR First Graders to their first day of school! Students and their parents arrived on campus early for a photo session and the annual “Schultüte” ceremony where each child received a traditional school cone. Some children additionally brought their own very colorfully decorated school cones from home, a special tradition unique to Germany.

The Schultüte helps mark the special moment when a child leaves Kindergarten to go on to primary school to begin their official academic career. Parents fill the colorful cones with treats, school supplies, and small gifts and give them to their children the day they become first-graders. ISR is proud to keep this fun and inspiring tradition live for every ISR student.

We wish all our first graders all the best for their first year of school and welcome all students and parents (back) to our community!

20 US-Fußballtalente besuchen in Neuss ein Jahr die internationale Schule ISR und trainieren dort mit Ex-Bundesligaspieler und Profitrainer Karsten Baumann

20 US-Fußballtalente besuchen in Neuss ein Jahr die internationale Schule ISR und trainieren dort mit Ex-Bundesligaspieler und Profitrainer Karsten Baumann

Wednesday, 14 August 2019

In dem am kommenden Montag startenden neuen Schuljahr bekommt die ISR International School on the Rhine in Neuss eine besondere Verstärkung sportlicher Art. 20 Fußballtalente aus den USA im Alter von 14 oder 15 Jahren besuchen im Rahmen eines Förderprojektes für ein Jahr die ISR. In Deutschland sollen sich die Jungen zum einen fußballerisch gezielt weiter verbessern, um später vielleicht den Traum von der Profi-Fußballerkarriere in Europa zu verwirklichen. Zum anderen können die Jungen ihre schulische Ausbildung auf hohem Niveau in ihrer Muttersprache fortsetzen und sich persönlich weiterentwickeln.

Das Training der Schüler an der ISR übernimmt Karsten Baumann, der selber 261 Bundesligaspiele u. a. für den 1. FC Köln und Borussia Dortmund bestritt, mehrere Profivereine trainierte und bereits zwei Jahre als Lehrer an der ISR arbeitet. Er kann den jungen Talenten auch abseits ihrer Trainingszeiten in Düsseldorfer Trainingscamps wertvolle Tipps für eine erfolgreiche Fußballerlaufbahn geben.

Mark Dillon, Initiator des Projektes und Talentscout aus Amerika, betont die Vorteile des ganzheitlichen Ansatzes des Projektes: „Durch die Unterstützung und Expertise von Karsten Baumann und die Verknüpfung des Leistungssports mit der hervorragenden internationalen Schulausbildung an der ISR können sich die jungen Fußballer während ihrer Zeit hier in Deutschland in allen Bereichen verbessern.“ Unterrichtet werden die Jungen während ihrer Zeit in Deutschland in der Mittel- und Oberstufe der ISR, in ihrer Muttersprache. Anpassungsprobleme dürften auch gering sein, weil sie mit Kindern zusammen sind, die ebenfalls perfekt Englisch sprechen und aus der ganzen Welt kommen. Dillon: „Gerade die Unterbringung der Jungen in Gastfamilien ist ein ent-scheidender Beitrag für die persönliche Weiterentwicklung. So lernen die Spieler Kultur und Gesellschaft des Gastlandes am besten kennen.“

„Wir freuen uns sehr über diese spannende Kooperation. Die amerikanischen Gastschüler werden unsere Schulkultur in diesem Jahr sicherlich deutlich bereichern“, so Peter Soliman, geschäftsführender Gesellschafter der ISR im Rahmen einer Kick-off-Veranstaltung: „Wir sind froh, dass wir neben der bewährten hochwertigen akademischen Ausbildung in den vergangenen Jahren auch die sportliche Infrastruktur ausgebaut und in diesem Bereich die personellen Voraussetzungen geschaffen haben, um so etwas anbieten zu können.“ Neben Karsten Baumann arbeiten im Sportbereich vier Lehrer und Ausbilder.

Das Fußballtraining findet auf der benachbarten Bezirksportanlage statt, welche die ISR zum Jahreswechsel übernommen hat und in diesem Sommer stark modernisiert. So entsteht auf dem auch von dem PSV Neuss weiterhin genutzten Gelände zum Beispiel ein neuer Kunstrasenplatz, welcher auch für das Training der US-Talente genutzt wird. Soliman: „Das Fußballprojekt mit den US-Schülern ist ein wichtiger Bestandteil des Ausbaus unserer zunehmenden Aktivitäten im Sportbereich.“ Die ISR ist zudem Partnerschule des Deutschen Fußball Bundes (DFB) beim DFB-Schnupperabzeichen für Nachwuchsfußballer sowie vom DFB als Junior Coach Ausbildungsschule zertifiziert. In beiden Bereichen finden regelmäßig Schulungen in Neuss statt.
