Spotlight On Our Student Atsuya

This week we would like to place the spotlight on our new student Atsuya, who started in Grade 5 this week. He starts in unusual circumstances, as he had gone straight into virtual classes and has not met any classmates in person so far! As the schools will be closed until April 19th, we are happy to introduce him to our school community in our Spotlight today.

Atsuya is from Tokyo, in his free time likes playing gaming and his favorite subject is Science. He is really excited about online quiz competition in German classes and right now he is getting used to his virtual lessons. We are sure that he will see a lot of progress very soon. Ms. Walsh, his English teacher, gives her first impressions of Atsuya ”He is patient and brave for jumping into a virtual English class.   He has made some immediate connections with other Japanese students who have been able to help him. So far he is quiet but is clearly able to follow what is going on and is increasing his comprehension quickly. He is also participating when asked to do so”.

We are happy to welcome Atsuya at ISR and hope that we can do this in person soon.

We are proud to spotlight Atsuya, 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.
