Last week, 15 ISR students together with Mr. Johnstone and Ms Racheva, hit the slopes of Zillertal, in Südtirol for 6 days of skiing and snowboarding, organised by David Blackall and The Shackleton Way. The ISR group was greeted by fantastic weather and excellent fresh-snow conditions, making it a truly unforgettable week for our students and teachers!
Our annual International Day this past Saturday was a spectacular success with over 1000 visitors in attendance. Culture, food and traditions from India, USA, Japan, France, China, Russia, Brazil, Greece und Germany were brought to life in the classrooms that were transformed by students and teachers into a mini-version of each country. Mr. Landrat Petrauschke and Mr. Peter Soliman opened the day's celebrations.
Congratulations to our student David Li (10B) for winning the “Pars International Junior Championship” in his age group. The tournament took place from December 28th – 30th in Florida, USA and David won the rounds with 72, 72 and 71 (that’s a lead by 7 strokes). Well done David!
On December 18, former ISR students visited ISR for an Alumni reception. The ISR alumni, who are now university students, shared their experiences studying Medicine, Law, Business and Management and Liberal Arts. There were interesting answers to questions from the upper class students who are in the process of transitioning from high school to university studies.
Every year it is nice for the Alumni to see each other again at ISR. It was a great experience for all present to hear how our former students are doing at university!
An exciting and successful 2014 is coming to an end. Therefore we would like to take a look back at the many events that shaped ISR this year.
Thank you to the whole ISR community for your trust and for standing by us. We look forward to a successful 2015 with all of you!
Grade 1–4 students were delighted to witness the marionette show held at ISR. On 11th December, Mr. Alexander Betov presented the marionette show of Beauty and the Beast. Mr. Betov is an award-winning puppet master and a tenor in the Krefeld-Mönchengladbach theatre.
Grade 1–4 students and their parents enjoyed the lively show, complete with beautiful scenery and colourful puppets. Thank you to Ms. Heather Sprague for organizing this event.
On Friday 180 pupils, teachers and parents actively supported our official partner, the DEG, at a game against the Sabo Ice Tigers from Nürnberg. As part of our partnership, the DEG offered a behind-the-scenes tour where students could watch the players warm up.
It was exciting to watch the DEG team fight and win! Among the ISR pupils are the children of player Rob Collins.
