Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Yasmin

Friday, 30 April 2021

This week, we spotlight our ninth Grader Yasmin, who joined ISR in 2018. Yasmin is a bright and ambitious young woman. She is very diligent in academics and already has the aim to study medicine after her IB. Yasmin is very active in school life and dedicates a huge amount of her time to leading the SLOⓇ Outreach Department. There she is doing a great job and motivates all of her deputies.

Her teacher, Ms. Brentnall, adds “Yasmin has made excellent academic progress this year through dedicated engagement with the feedback given to her. She helps to create an excellent learning environment with her pleasant manner and bright smile. It is a pleasure to teach a student who so positively engages with every topic and text type and so enthusiastically answers questions in class. Yasmin has developed a love for Shakespeare´s works and has delivered Juliet´s speeches with an accuracy of pronunciation, careful intonation, and enthusiasm – no easy feat, not even for a student with English as a native language and so I am particularly impressed by Yasmin´s performance. It is a pleasure to see Yasmin thriving in her interpersonal skills, confidence, and academic performance. Keep up the hard work, Yasmin!”

Yasmin’s ambition and her positive nature are reflected in what her teachers think and say about her. Her teacher, Mr. McGee, adds in conclusion “I am always impressed with her commitment to her schoolwork and her duties to SLOⓇ.  She does it all while maintaining a very positive attitude.  Recently, I saw her after her history midterm which she had finished quite early.  She explained, “it was easy.” A comment not about the quality of the IGCSE exam, but rather her own study habits and dedication to learning.  The remark displayed assured confidence in herself that she has earned through her hard work!”

We are very proud to spotlight Yasmin 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.
