Spotlight On Our Student Philip

This week, we spotlight our eleventh-grader Philip, who originally joined ISR in Kindergarten, left for middle school, and rejoined ISR in ​Grade 10. Philip is a committed student who is always giving his best. He stands out for his kind and caring personality, and for always supporting others. “Philip is without a doubt the most conscientious and hardworking student I’ve had at ISR. He came back in grade 10, in the middle of his IGCSE history course, and worked hard to catch up on a year’s worth of material to achieve an incredible result. He is constantly self-reflecting and always looking for ways to improve his results in all of his subjects. Philip is unafraid to ask questions in class, and they are always good and thoughtful, and in that way, his peers benefit from his inquiring brain. Lastly, but certainly not least, he is a caring and helpful individual who is always happy to volunteer to help peers and teachers with anything they might need. He is an absolute delight to have as a student and the kind of individual that is a model for all ISR students.”, Mr. McGee, TOK Coordinator, and History and English Teacher, says.

Philipp is a very open-minded, communicative, and cheerful student who is always friendly to his teachers and peers. As part of his IB program, he is involved in various CAS projects and shows a great sense of responsibility there. He is a reading mentor in our library and supports younger students in finding suitable books and playing games with them. In addition, he actively participates in the Model United Nations simulation and volunteers at a sports club on weekends, supervising children there. These are just a few of the things Philip is involved in. He shows great engagement and commitment both in school and in his personal life.

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

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who, in line with this year’s theme, is striving for “extraordinary achievements” on a daily basis. No matter if it is academic success, special commitment or outstanding character traits – we look forward to sharing each of these success stories.
