Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Sahej

Spotlight On Our Student Sahej

This week, we spotlight our first-grader Sahej. Sahej loves Advising lessons and always has wonderful comments to make. He is a very thoughtful and insightful student, and he always brings so much to discussions in the classroom. His teacher Ms. Stenning-Smith says about him, “Sahej is an absolute delight to have in my First Grade Class. He demonstrates integrity every day and is a wonderful role model for his fellow peers.

“Sahej is thoughtful, friendly and incredibly kind. If I think back to the first day of Grade 1, I am reminded of his thoughtfulness. We were eating lunch in the cafeteria, I was not eating my lunch at that moment,  he asked me where my food was and  why I wasn’t eating. At that moment he was only concerned about me! He is so genuine and speaks directly from his heart. I will never forget that moment. Sahej deserves to be celebrated for his strong but also gentle character.” Ms. Morris, Academic Head of Primary, concludes by saying about him “He is an exceptional ISR student!”

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

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who, in line with this year’s theme, is striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.

Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Arthur

Spotlight On Our Student Arthur

This week, we shine the ISR spotlight on our 2nd grader, Arthur. His teacher Ms. Little has written some lovely motivational words exploring why she would like to put Arthur in the spotlight, “Arthur is a wonderful student and is a great role model to his classmates. He is an extremely kind, helpful and hardworking boy. Arthur is always friendly and kind to others. He tries his best in every subject and because of this hardworking attitude he has made so much progress this year.

“At the start of the school year, Arthur was a little shy but with time his confidence has grown and he has shown us all what an amazing person he is. Just today, I spotted him in the cafeteria with a dustpan and brush sweeping the floors and wiping the tables of his own volition! Arthur is always doing things like this to make our classroom and school a nicer place to be and I would love for this to be recognized throughout the school.”

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

„Hina Matsuri“, Japanese “Girls Day" at ISR

„Hina Matsuri“, Japanese “Girls Day" at ISR

In Japan, March 3 is “Girls Day,” also known as “Hina Matsuri”. This is a special day for girls to celebrate their health and happiness. From the end of February to March 3rd, families display their daughters graceful dolls dressed in Japanese ancient costumes.

In ancient Japan, it was believed that dolls could confine evil spirits, and nowadays the dolls are displayed to ensure girls healthy and happy future. Such a lovely tradition which was shared with our Kindergarten children yesterday by representatives of our Japanese community. Thank you so much ladies!!
