This week a group of grade 9 students performed the Story of Dr Seuss's "The Grinch who stole Christmas' for a fascinated grade 5 audience. They told the heart-warming tale of the mean and grumpy old Grinch who hates the Christmas Season but suddenly gets into the festive Spirit with a little help from the town of Whoville.
Last Friday, NRW Minister of Education, Yvonne Gebauer, and NRW Minister of Finance, Lutz Lienenkämper, visited our school. Accompanied by our advisory board, representatives of the press and some parents, Peter Soliman led the ministers on a tour of the school. After visiting the Kindergarten, Cafeteria, Exam Hall, IT-Lab and SLO office, the group reached the Science Lab. Here, the ministers were able to test our Virtual Reality glasses and observe Killian O'Brien’s lesson. The e-book project and the 3D printer were also presented to the ministers and the press. They were very impressed.
This week we were fortunate to present three different Christmas concerts from our students of different age groups. The dancing, the choir, and instrumental performances gave the audience a preview of the festivities for the Christmas season. We would like to thank our Parent Network for providing the delicious treats during our winter concerts and thank you to our ISR mom Susie Seum for her beautiful snowmen, made entirely out of plastic cups, that decorated our stage.
This week Santa Claus surprised our students by touring the school with lots of sweet treats in his sack. Our KG kids were delighted to see Santa and very excited about greeting him in person. Our “well behaved” staff too enjoyed their Christmas moment with Santa.
Well done to all classes who participated in the Hour of Code 4th–10th December. Grades 3–7 took part in this exciting event and many of the students received a certificate of completion. The final certificate total was 160. Many of the students also carried on at home to complete even more projects.
On Sunday, the 10th of December 2017, nearly 100 students of Musicbox Oxana performed on stage in the ISR Cafeteria. The young students from Kindergarten sang two beautiful winter songs. Then they enjoyed a visit from Santa Claus, who brought little presents for each of them. After a short break, our advanced students also performed on stage; it was an amazing and proud moment for their families to watch and hear their progress in playing their musical instruments and singing.
Japanese, Turkish, Chinese, Indian, Dutch and Russian were amongst the many other delicacies that were offered today by our parents in a tasty International Breakfast organized by our Parent Network. In a friendly get together all parents and staff invited enjoyed gastronomic finger food from all over the world and chatted and networked in a casual atmosphere. We would like to thank our amazing Parent Network for organizing every year this wonderful tastes of the world fest!
