Spotlight On Our Student Paul

Paul, Grade 11, joined ISR in 2017 and Ms. McGee says he was a wonderful student to work with in Grades 9 and 10, as he consistently demonstrated an “Above and Beyond” attitude toward his school work. “I get the sense that his motivation comes not just from the desire to achieve top marks, but a true love for learning and curiosity about the unknown”, says Ms. McGee.

Last year, Paul set the bar high for this year’s Grade 10 students, by taking 6 IGCSE exams and achieving all A’s and A*’s and he is on the same track this year as an IB student with a 94 overall average.  He is also leading the Communications Department on the MUN Executive Team at ISR by helping advertise the club to younger students, sharing news about MUN at ISR, and even helping to create an MUN student-run website.

As a part of his CAS-project, Paul dedicated his free time towards the Leo-Service Club Mönchengladbach, the youth  organization of “Lion’s Club” which enables young adults to engage in social service activities. In the past months, Paul and his team successfully planned and organized the “Leo Advent Calendar 2019”, a lottery-based advent calendar where the profit goes to a local charity. This year the Leo-Cub calendar sale will support “St. Josefshaus Mönchengladbach”, an institution which provides apartments and activities for disadvantaged citizens.

We are proud to spotlight Paul, 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.
