Christiane is a former ISR student who started at ISR as a teacher last week. “I’m very excited to return to ISR. It’s been a long time and it’s good to be home” she says.
In cooperation with Fortuna Düsseldorf, ISR is launching an extraordinary new sport and football project. Through this new project, 20 football enthusiastic students (born in 2004) from the USA will get the chance to live in Germany for one year to improve their football skills.
Julius, Grade 12, has been a student at ISR since Kindergarden and is a great example of what Staying Ahead looks like. He has not only achieved and maintained a top academic performance at ISR, but also through dedication, hard work, and determination has balanced a full-time soccer schedule with the professional soccer club Fortuna Düsseldorf as team captain of the U17 German Bundesligateam.
On Wednesday, we welcomed representatives of over 35 universities from 10 countries to our annual University Fair. In the foyer there was a real buzz, as students and parents from Grades 9 to 12 talked to the university visitors and learned more about courses and admissions processes.
Earlier this week our favourite dentist Dr. Jürgens made her annual visit to our Kindergarten! For over the years, Dr. Jürgens has visited ISR’s Kindergarten and has helped out students to develop good dental habits and to feel comfortable when visiting a dentist.
Our amazing IB Art exhibition is now showing at Deutsche Bank @ Königsalle, in Düsseldorf. If you have not yet had the opportunity to see these great works of art by our great young artist, please stop by and have a look!
Last friday, we celebrated the traditional Russian Maslenitsa festival with our ISR community. We had such a good time learning about this festival, the origins behind it and being immersed in the cultural activities. Our Russian parents busied themselves by making homemade traditional food, drinks, and other symbolic arrangements.
