ISR at the Rhein Polo Club - Family & Friends Cup 2019

Last Saturday we joined the excitement at the Family & Friends Cup of the Düsseldorfer Rhein Polo Club in Willich. In addition to the polo tournaments, there was a colourful family celebration for young and old on the entire grounds, which of course included our American school bus.

As a highlight for our little visitors, we brought our VR glasses with us, which our students normally use in the classroom to help enhance their studies.

Thank you to the Rhein Polo Club for organizing this exciting tournament and fun-filled family day. We are already looking forward to next year!

ISR at the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf 2019

Thursday, 02 May 2019

This year too, ISR was finely represented at the METRO Marathon via our runners and our bright yellow American school bus. Around 20 ISR students successfully competed in the Kids Cup and performed outstandingly well. We are very proud of our youngest marathon enthusiasts and can’t wait for them to embark on their first marathon relay race.

Not only our students, but also numerous parents and staff members enthusiastically participated in the marathon. They demonstrated strong group performances in the marathon relay. A special mention goes to an ISR mum for her team spirit in jumping in spontaneously and running almost half a marathon. At the end, all runners proudly took home a medal and ended the eventful afternoon with a cosy get-together with music, drinks and a few snacks. The exciting day came to a lovely end with everyone exchanging their personal running stories and marathon experiences.

We can’t wait for the next METRO Marathon and would like to thank all participants and helpers for their support and METRO for the outstanding organization.

School Area Championship Boys (2007-09)

On Wednesday, the ISR Boys Football Team took part in the School Area Championship and earned fourth
place. The boys showed a great team performance in the group stage with 2 wins and 1 loss.

Unfortunately, we had to face an unlucky defeat in the semi-final by 0-1. After our team missed good chances
in the beginning, a goal was scored on a fast break. In the end, we lost the game for 3rd place with a score of
1-2. Congratulations to all the players, especially to Philipp Steinlein and Zile Lin for their extraordinary
performances.

Host Families Needed for Fortuna Talent Project

In cooperation with Fortuna Düsseldorf, ISR is launching an extraordinary new sport and football project. Through this new project, 20 football enthusiastic students (born in 2004) from the USA will get the chance to live in Germany for one year to improve their football skills.

The students are very ambitious and they of course have the hope of pursuing a career in the Bundesliga. They will go to school at ISR and train at Fortuna Düsseldorf and PSV Neuss.

The students will be led by the initiator of the project, Mark Dillon, a full-time coach of Fortuna Düsseldorf and from ISR, Karsten Baumann.

We are now looking for host families for the next school year (early August 2019 to end of June 2020), who are willing to host one of these students. We will support the families with a subsidy of 500 € per pupil per month. Liability for the students is covered by the Talent Project. 

Information about the project can be found here;

And of course, you can always contact Karsten Baumann (Karsten.Baumann@isr-school.de) or Malin Ljungqvist (malin.ljungqvist@isr-school.de) if you have any questions.

We are excited to implement this project with your help!
