Student Spotlight: Spotlight On Our Student Carole

Friday, 10 June 2022

This week, we spotlight our eleven grader Carole, who joined ISR this year. She has had an outstanding start to her ISR school career and has quickly won over others with her ambition and friendly character. “Carole came late to the start of the IB Year One program but has already shown herself to be an ideal IB student.  In TOK class, she is constantly showing herself to be a thoughtful and reflective learner, always pushing forward conversation and sharing ideas about some tough questions and concepts, while doing so in a way that respects the ongoing discourse in the room. She is a delight to have in class!”, as her teacher, Mr. McGee adds.

As part of her IB program, Carole is also actively engaged in CAS classes. Here, she impresses her CAS teacher, Mr. Urban, with her positivity and commitment. She recently gave a presentation on digital safety to grades 5 and 6 and is also very active as a Big Sister, supporting younger students in their school day at ISR. Additionally, she is part of the KG STEM project and visits our kindergarteners weekly to show and explain interesting experiments to them. Carole shows a lot of commitment and wants to become a doctor after her time at ISR. Her University and Career Counselor Ms. Wacker adds, “Carole is a dedicated student who is keen to study Biology, Biomedicine, or Human Medicine at the university. Her determination and her social skills including her friendly, positive nature will, I am sure, make her a good doctor. Apart from working with people, she shows great interest in science topics and lab work. Coming from Lebanon only recently, Carole managed to get settled and make friends very quickly. She is a pleasure to work with.”

We are very proud to spotlight Carole, one of ISR’s many outstanding students!

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who represent our school motto, “we enable great minds and strong characters”. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment, or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
