Congratulations to our Grade 12 Art students Caitlin, Janina, Ann-Cathrin, Marie-Sophie and Shi Yu on the successful showing of their collective works. Thank you and congratulations also to Ms Henebry for guiding our students through the IB Diploma Visual Arts program and helping them realize their individual creative potential.
ISR will be the host to over 30 universities at two university fairs for our students in March.
Our ISR Kindergarten students celebrated the Chinese New Year today and enjoyed the day to the fullest! This year we are celebrating the year of the dog. According to the Asian astrology, your year of birth – and the animal this represents – determines a lot about your personality traits.
We wish all our Chinese families a happy new year and all the best for 2018!!
Last Saturday ISR joined once again the famous Kappessonntagszug in Neuss. It was a paradise for all ages and everyone enjoyed the day to the fullest. Thank you to all ISR families who dressed up in colorful carnival costumes and joined us on the ISR carnival float.
Knights and princesses, cowboys and Indians, superheroes and policemen, vampires and dragons made ISR a particularly festive place today. Our students had a lot of fun at the Carnival Spirit Day.
We are pleased to announce that our students continue to receive offers from outstanding universities throughout Europe. British universities always reply first, so most of these are from the UK, even though many of our students have applied to a variety of countries. Perhaps the most noteworthy information is that one of our students has now received offers to study Mathematics at Imperial College, London, University of Warwick, and last—but not least—University of Cambridge.
Mr. Rafe Courage, the British Consul-General for North Rhine-Westphalia, visited our school today. After a student-guided school tour, he addressed the students’ questions about his professional career and the challenges of his job. His interest in foreign countries and languages motivated him to study European Business Studies and embark on a diplomatic career. He especially appreciates the versatility of his work; getting to meet and know interesting people and visit many different countries. Mr Courage also highlighted the importance of an academic education. His tip for life: “Be round people.”
