Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Philipp

Friday, 17 September 2021

This week, we spotlight our running champion Philipp, who joined ISR in 2014. Philipp has worked very hard to develop his study skills and time management over the past few years, which has helped him achieve academic success. He is currently studying towards attaining his IB Diploma and produces work of a high standard in Math, Humanities, and Sports Science.  His sense of humor and personality have also made him popular with his peers and teachers as he really connects with people. Ms McGee – ISR Academic Coordinator  adds, “I look forward to hearing about his future success and I think we will soon see him starting a program at the Hult International Business School.”

One of Philipp’s passions is sport. As part of his CAS project, Philipp took part in the charity run Mammutmarsch in Wuppertal for the second time in a row. This year, he outdid himself and ran 100 km in just under 24 hours. With his outstanding performance, he supported the Neuss Zülow Tandem Foundation, which organizes integrative sports projects for people with disabilities in the Rhine district. Through his participation, he was able to donate €300 once again to the foundation, continuing a long tradition of his family supporting the foundation.

Philipp also shows his passion for sports in a soccer activity for third and fourth graders, which he leads with great commitment together with a classmate. His CAS teacher – Mr  Urban adds, “It’s always nice to see how close the bond is with his little brother Felix in third grade as part of the Big brother project. Despite the break due to lockdown, the two have a very close bond.”

We are very proud to spotlight Philipp, 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.
