This week, we spotlight our dedicated Eleven-Grader Riko, who joined ISR in Grade 10 last year.

Music is an important component and especially for dementia patients, as repeated listening helps with recognition.

Every morning she greets me and her classmates with a smile that is contagious. It is an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Riko is very determined in academics, which her biology teacher, Ms. Knight, attests to,  “Riko is a hardworking, motivated, and dedicated student in Biology with a great passion for the environment and sustainability issues. She is trialing an interesting IA topic regarding the use of microplastics in commercial toothpaste brands!” Among her interests are sports and music. Riko likes being active and does a lot of sports with her friends. She also shows great musical talent with instruments including piano and clarinet.
