On Sunday 29th April, ISR took part in the METRO Marathon Düsseldorf Team Relay, with a total of 5 relay teams – this was more teams than ISR has ever had at this event in the past! A total of 20 parents and teachers took part, and with our brand new running shirts, our ISR road-runners certainly looked the part! Not only were our ISR runners dressed to impress, their running efforts were equally as impressive! Each and every one of our ISR runners earned their medal and can be proud with their achievement!
This past weekend (27–29 April 2018) Mr. Urban and Ms. Bezuidenhout accompanied the Grade 7 students to the picturesque town of Monschau. Once everyone had been shown their rooms, the teachers took the group for a scenic walk into the small town in the Eifel. Throughout the weekend the students had a great time participating in activities that demanded teamwork and concentration.
In a friendly get-together parents and staff enjoyed a delicious breakfast with homemade food from all over the world in our school today. It was a great opportunity for new parents to get to know other parents and exchange some stories about the school year so far.We would like to thank our amazing Parent Network for organizing this wonderful breakfast!
Today we were honored to welcome an ISR mother and doctor, Ms. Dr. Vali-Pursche here at ISR.Ms. Vali-Pursche and her team came to visit our 1–4 graders armed with posters, colorful balloons, small gifts, dental hygiene products and interesting presentations about dental hygiene and how to prevent caries and gingivitis.
On Saturday, April 21st, hundreds of partners, guests and friends of ISR came together to celebrate our wonderful ISR International Spring Festival 2018 in the warm sunshine. Many ISR families from more than 40 countries came dressed in traditional costumes to represent their country. In addition to showcasing their national games and crafts, they brought delicious homemade delicacies from all over the world for the delicious “Taste of the World” buffet.
Thirty-four ninth graders, accompanied by Mr. Barnett, Ms. Cross and Mr. Capé, recently spent four days touring numerous historical sites in Berlin. The group was lucky to have had excellent April weather, turning the long walks into pleasant journeys.
It’s official. Our “ISR goes Green” project is going into the next round: Two solar panels have been successfully set up and have been tested by the students during lessons. After several solar panels were installed on the school’s rooftop to generate electricity, the first of these can now be used for educational purposes.
