Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Tim
- Friday, 20 December 2019
This week, we like to feature the “Big Brother” of ISR, Tim, Grade 11. Tim has been at ISR since Kindergarten and surely knows his way around our school. His teachers, current and former, find it is very special to follow a student for so long and all agree that Tim has certainly matured a lot over the past few years.
“I see him growing into a good example of an IB student. Open, critical, respectful, and getting there with hard work as well” says his teacher Ms. Zic. His German teacher Mr. Kroenke says “Tim’s current academic success in my German class can be traced back to the fact that even when he is confronted with stress and failure, he keeps being self-motivated and goal orientated. He does not shy away from tackling very demanding works of literature in his free time, which shows that he is at the same time open-minded, courageous, and persevering“.
Tim still has his playful spirit and gives back to our school community. The Kindergarten children LOVE having Tim come read to them on a weekly basis and he has recently become a “Big Brother” to a Grade 5 student in Middle School. Both of them really enjoy spending time together each week! As a larger CAS project, Tim has decided to work with “It’s for kids e.V.“ to support local projects for children growing up under less fortunate circumstances. Tim has a big heart, is always very polite, and is a true friend. His everlasting good mood is contagious and he always has a helping hand to spare.
We are proud to spotlight Tim, one of ISR’s many outstanding students!
Our Student Spotlight project aims to highlight every Friday one of our outstanding students who is, appropriate to this year’s theme, striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if its academic success, a special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
