Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Pia

Friday, 11 September 2020

This week, we spotlight our fourth grader Pia, who joined ISR in grade 1. Pia is a talented young girl with a strong personality. Because of that, even teachers from middle and upper school know her very well! Mr. Urban met Pia as he covered a class from her and from that time, Pia has remained in his memory: “Pia is very confident and if you talk to her, sometimes you get the feeling of talking with a young adult. I enjoy the times we meet in the hallway, and she tells me about her weekend and holiday stories. She has a very lively personality, and I am sure she will go her own special way.”

Pia loves interacting with others and if she finds something interesting during class, she is passionate and enjoys sharing it with her classmates. She is very dedicated to the things she cares about and is always willing to help those struggling with tasks or questions. Her passion includes sports and she is an outstanding athlete. Jonna Schierl, Athletics Coordinator at ISR, says about Pia “last year, we did a small plank challenge in PE, and Pia was able to hold it far longer than everyone else. Her performance was really impressive, and she has a lot of potential.” Everyone who gets to know Pia will directly see the importance of sports in her life. She is a loyal friend and brightens the day of anyone she comes into contact with.

Our Music Teacher, Ms. Bucher, describes her finally with very appropriate words “The “P” in Pia stands for Personality! She has a great sense of humour and is very witty.”

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

Every Friday, our Student Spotlight Project aims to highlight one of our outstanding students who is in line with 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.
