Our this week’s Spotlight is our first grader Filippa. This is what her teacher, Ms Adrienne Stening-Smith, said about her: Filippa is incredibly kind, caring and loving, to both her fellow students and teachers. I found a quote that describes her perfectly… Do things for people not because of what they do in return, but because of who you are. – Harold S. Kushner.

Abby, Grade 10, is the current Deputy Head of Discipline in ISR’s Student Life Organization. Abby and her team from the Discipline Department were the organizers behind Random Acts of Kindness. Thanks to Abby’s dedication, positive attitude, and hard work, the week was filled with kind acts and smiles across the school.
Today, ISR kicked off the beginning of Random Acts of Kindness Week with the simple goal of spreading kindness across the ISR community. Our Student Life Organization has organized a variety of activities including anonymous compliment bags, student-teacher quotes, Valentine’s Day Card sale, spirit day and a bake sale.
In honour of Random Acts of Kindness week, we have asked parents to share with us any ‘shout-out’s’ that they have about our ISR staff. Thank you all for sharing your positive comments! See here what’s being said by our parents!
