Das breit gefächerte Kinderprogramm sowie zahlreiche kreative Aktionen der Schüler:innen ermöglichen die hohe Spendensumme / Langjährige Partnerschaft von ISR und AIWCD soll weiter intensiviert werden

Die ISR International School on the Rhine Neuss/Düsseldorf und der American International Women’s Club Düsseldorf e.V. (AIWCD) haben bei einem gemeinsamen Halloween-Fest einen Erlös von 3000 Euro erzielt und diesen an das SOS-Kinderdorf Düsseldorf gespendet. „Ein tolles Ergebnis. Das ist ein weiterer wichtiger Baustein für unsere Arbeit“, freute sich Cora Müller vom SOS-Kinderdorf Düsseldorf. Sie lobt das große Engagement der Schüler:innen zugunsten der gemeinnützigen Organisation. „Die Jungen und Mädchen im SOS-Kinderdorf Düsseldorf lieben Halloween sehr. Daher freuen sich alle riesig, an dieser Aktion partizipieren zu dürfen. Und wir werden uns regelmäßig in unserer Kinderkoch- und Backwerkstatt daran erinnern, dass der Erlös der Halloween Party bei deren Ausstattung eingesetzt wird.“ Hier lernen die Kinder, wie in einer Küche Speisen frisch und gesund zuzubereiten sind. Cora Müller: „Die Kinder sollen mit allen Sinnen kochen und backen. Und anschließend selbst feststellen, wie lecker das schmeckt.“

„Der Erlös unserer diesjährigen Veranstaltung konnte so üppig ausgefallen, weil sich unsere Schülerinnen und Schüler und die engagierten Vereinsmitglieder so viele kreative Aktionen und Wettbewerbe einfallen ließen“, betont Peter Soliman, Geschäftsführender Gesellschafter der ISR: „Da wurde viel freie Zeit investiert. Vor allem die liebevolle Dekoration der Schule und besonders der Spooky Hallway sorgten für strahlende Kinderaugen.“

AIWCD und ISR sind seit mehreren Jahren Kooperationspartner und setzen sich gemeinsam für wohltätige Zwecke ein, etwa bei gemeinsamen Veranstaltungen wie Halloween oder dem Sponsoring einer Casino Night durch die ISR. „Damit können wir viel Gutes bewirken“, sagt Stephanie Eggert, Head of the kids club des AIWCD: „Wegen solch erfolgreicher Aktionen planen wir gerade gemeinsam mit der ISR, unsere Kooperation auszuweiten.“

 

Die gemeinsame Halloween-Feier mit dem AIWCD ist auch der Auftakt für den Charity-Endspurt der ISR für das Jahr 2022, bei dem sich die Schüler:innen und deren Familien für gemeinnützige Organisationen engagieren, beispielsweise für die Aktion Lichtblicke. Eine weitere Charity-Aktion zum Ende des Schuljahres ist der so genannte Wish Garland Tree – ein Weihnachtsbaum, an dem Kinder ihre Wünsche aufschreiben und von einer Familie der ISR erfüllen lassen können. „Unsere Schülerinnen und Schüler haben ein gutes Gespür dafür entwickelt, dass es in der aktuell sehr herausfordernden Situation besonders wichtig ist, über den Tellerrand hinauszuschauen und Mitmenschen zu unterstützen“, sagt Emil Cete, stellvertretender Schuldirektor der ISR: „Und dass sich daraus immer häufiger ein so großes Engagement für die gute Sache entwickelt, kann man gar nicht hoch genug bewerten.“ Solche Aktionen sind ein wichtiger Teil des Bildungskonzeptes der ISR. Cete: „An der ISR geht es nicht nur darum, hervorragende akademische Ergebnisse zu erreichen. Es ist eines unserer zentralen Anliegen, dass die jungen Leute auch soziale Verantwortung entwickeln. Nur so können sie zu einem wichtigen und verantwortungsbewussten Teil der Gesellschaft werden.“

Philip is unafraid to ask questions in class, and they are always good and thoughtful, and in that way, his peers benefit from his inquiring brain. Lastly, but certainly not least, he is a caring and helpful individual who is always happy to volunteer to help peers and teachers with anything they might need. He is an absolute delight to have as a student and the kind of individual that is a model for all ISR students.”, Mr. McGee, TOK Coordinator, and History and English Teacher, says.

Philipp is a very open-minded, communicative, and cheerful student who is always friendly to his teachers and peers.
