Spotlight On Our Student Rafail

This week, we spotlight our first-grader Rafail who has been at ISR since Kindergarten. “Rafail is a student full of energy and an amazing athlete, in particular a great soccer player, always positive and friendly and ready to take on the challenge of games against older players”, says his soccer coach Mr. Baumann.

His PE teacher Ms. Racheva heartily confirms this and adds that he is also a very intelligent boy who always puts the team first when playing, never gives up when the going gets tough and knows how to accept both winning and losing: not always easy at such young age. “Rafail is very polite, is always ready to help his teachers and classmates. He is a role model and a leader with a smile on his face at all times” says Ms. Racheva.

Also his former Kindergarten teacher fondly remembers him. “Rafail has always had a mighty spirit. As well as being a football genius, he’s always determined to do his best academically and also socially with his friends and classmates. I’m lucky to have had Rafail in my class. Don’t forget your Kindergarten teacher! :)” says Ms. Ramirez.

Additionally, his class teacher says: “Rafail is an incredibly kind and motivated student. He absolutely loves to learn and is always willing to go above and beyond to help others learn as well. He is extremely observant and is always there to lend a helping hand to those who need one. 1C is very lucky to have him!“

We are proud to spotlight Rafail, one of ISR’s many 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.
