ISR End of Middle School Celebration

Last Wednesday, around 140 guests gathered on our ISR campus in Neuss to celebrate the impressive achievements of our grade eight students and the completion of their Middle School journey at ISR. A very special event for our students who, after the summer holidays, will begin a new chapter in their educational journey at ISR and prepare for their International Baccalaureate in the Upper School.

Ms. McLeod, Head of Middle School, and Academic Coordinator for grades seven and eight, opened the ceremony with a solemn speech, warmly welcoming all attendees – including teachers and staff members of ISR. Following this, 21 students were awarded various honors for outstanding achievements in subjects; including, for example, in the subject areas of Mathematics, English, German, Spanish, Japanese, and Sports – a special highlight for the families and the students, who were particularly proud of their achievements!

During the ceremony, three musical performances were delivered by our talented students: Amanda played “Für Elise,” Vyom presented “Praeludium in C Minor,” and Zhengnui performed “Sonata D.” These pieces enriched the celebration and showcased the impressive musical talents of our students.

Before the 65 students than received their certificates, Ms. Fehlberg, the mother of an eighth-grade student, and a Parent Network class representative, gave an emotional speech, wishing all the students the very best for their future educational journey. Finally, Ms. McLeod handed out the well-deserved certificates to our students.

After the formal ceremony, all guests had the opportunity to chat over light refreshments and beverages. Our 65 students enjoyed the gathering, celebrating their achievements and the shared experiences they had during their middle school years at ISR. Afterwards, all students came together for a celebration organized by our ISR Parent Network and ended the evening together. A memory that will surely stay with them for many years to come!

We wholeheartedly congratulate the grade eight students and wish them continued success in the Upper School at ISR. Their outstanding accomplishments and personal development further affirm our guiding principle: “We Enable Great Minds and Strong Characters”!
