Last Saturday, we once again held our annual family event, our Family Fun & Sports Day in bright sunshine. Hundreds of guests, families, teachers, and staff came together to celebrate the first major school event of the school year.
This week we proudly spotlight our first grader Luca Julien. He started at ISR in Kindergarten and quickly improved his English.
Luca Julien is a very sporty and talented boy. His PE teacher at ISR says he is very respectful, helpful, and always ready for new challenges. Luca Julien has been awarded the Sport Star of the Week for his class, and over the weekend, Luca won the Stadtwerke Düsseldorf Kö-Lauf for his age group by running 2 km in only 7:38 minutes. Congratulations Luca Julien!
In response to requests from parents, ISR has added swimming lessons to our Physical Education program. Starting this academic year, Grade 2 students will have the opportunity to participate in supervised swimming lessons during their normal PE lessons. Today, our first swimmers got into the water. Apart from the regular PE instructors, three additional qualified swimming coaches were on hand to help our beginners get secure in the water and to coach our advanced students to improve their swimming skills.
Yesterday‘s Kö-Lauf was another huge success! Over a hundred students, parents, and staff members ran, cheered, and celebrated with great spirit at the Königsallee Düsseldorf Run. Special congratulations to two of our students, Malak and Luca, who finished first in the Bambinilauf and the U8 Run! Everyone today did an amazing job and we’re more than proud to have such a sporty ISR Community!
Today, we were honored to welcome Mr. Stefan Koetz (Head of Customer Unit West Europe & Global Customer Unit Deutsche Telekom at Ericsson GmbH) accompanied by his colleague to ISR. Mr. Koetz visited our students and held a thought-provoking presentation on technological advancements made in this modern world, especially in the communications industry.
Our Student Spotlight this week is our student Felicia, who has been at ISR since she was three years old. Now, she is in her final year of kindergarten. Felicia has learned a lot at ISR over the past years and is very proud of herself. She always starts the day in a relaxed manner and to her friends she is an indispensable part of the ISR community. Felicia is at first a reserved character, but quickly blossoms and enchants her peers with a warm and friendly smile.
