The 2018 ISR graduating class achieved an average IB score of 36 out of 45 possible points (represents 100% score). The worldwide average was 30. 80% of our students outperformed the world average. Every seventh student ranked among the top 3% worldwide. Correspondingly the students have acceptances from top universities around the world: Cambridge, Kings College, UCL, Bocconi, George Washington, and Purdue full scholarship.
Last week we once again held our annual ISR Sports Camp for young sports enthusiasts and athletes. We had various sport activities on offer such as; swimming, skiing, water sports, trampoline, outdoor games, dance and much more. Everyone enjoyed the exciting week as it was a great opportunity to get to know new people and make friends. Apart from the success in sport itself, participants learnt more about team spirit, to be ambitious and of course to enjoy themselves.
18 student athletes from 5 different schools in the Rhein-Kreis Neuss (17 boys and 2 girls) spent the last week training for the Official DFB Junior-Coach Certificate. After 40 training units, taught by our ISR Sports Coach Karsten Baumann (former professional football player and coach), the junior coaches obtained their certificates.
A colorful and eventful week comes to an end. Once again the Art Camp took place this week at the school. The students practiced painting, crafting and drawing and had a lot of fun preparing their own little art exhibition. Today, all interested parents, teachers and friends were invited to view the collected artworks of the week with home-made smoothies made by the students.
Fresh vegetables, fragrant herbs and lots of cooking utensils: This year, for the first time ever, the ISR Cooking Camp took place at the school. Eight students spent a week delving into practical nutrition tips, tasty recipes and lots of cooking and baking fun. Of course, a visit to local farms and a visit to the market was not to be missed! The children learnt a lot about animal welfare, fresh fruits and vegetables and how a farm shop is built and how it operates.
The support for our musical students has further increased: After only one Upper Secondary School student chose music as subject during this last school year, we are proud of the 13 students who have taken up music for the next school year. Four of whom will take music as a subject in their IB exam. In order for all this to be possible, a few changes have been made in the music department.
This morning our students proudly received their awards for the various disciplines they excelled. We are proud of your engagement and of how you stayed focused during the whole school year.
We wish you a wonderful and fun-filled summer break with your families, see you all again in August!
