ISR International Spring Festival 2019

Monday, 06 May 2019

In keeping with the theme: “Many Cultures – one global language: education” hundreds of partners, guests and friends of our school came together to celebrate cultural diversity here at ISR during our annual International Spring Festival last Saturday.

ISR families from over 44 countries came dressed in traditional attire to represent their country. In addition to showcasing their national games, arts and crafts, they also brought various homemade delicacies from all over the world for the delicious “Taste of the World” buffet.

Students presented their projects in their classrooms and visitors had the opportunity to view numerous art exhibitions on display throughout the school. Fun-filled activities, sponsored by our partners and supported by our SLO® Students, as well as a colorful open-air stage program entertained our guests. Numerous bands, dancers and artists created an outstanding atmosphere on campus.

The children participated also in a challenging “Multisport Competition” organized by our PE Department. Other sporty activities included playing life-size giant Human Soccer and Hockey with our Partner HTC Schwarz-Weiss Neuss e.V.

These beautiful moments were captured on camera by one of our wonderful ISR mothers and professional photographer (Melanie Osterried Fotografie), who also offered additional Family Fun Portraits for all visitors for free. A raffle with great prizes for kids closed off the wonderful event.

We would like to thank all our visitors and partners who made this day special and of course a huge thank you to our teachers and students who worked so hard to make this event a success. Additionally, a special thank you goes to our outstanding parents, who once again surpassed themselves with this year’s “Taste of the World” Buffet and who lovingly decorated the whole school.

The combined efforts of our entire community just goes to show – Good schools are made of students, great schools are made of families! We’re already looking forward for next year’s International Spring Festival Celebration!
