Student Spotlights: Spotlight On Our Student Zarand

Friday, 29 January 2021

This week, we spotlight our committed Seven-Grader Zarand who joined ISR in Grade 5. Zarand feels incredibly comfortable at ISR and embodies ISR’s motto, “It’s Cool to be Good.” He gets along very well with his classmates and is an open-minded young man. He is extremely hard working in class, his expectations of himself are high, and he lives up to them. “He is the type of student teachers pray for!” says his teacher Mr. Lillywhite.

In addition to his schooling at ISR, Zarand also does distance learning at a Hungarian school. For him, education is very important and also a connection to his origins. Despite two different school systems and a large amount of work, Zarand masters his academic achievements to a high level. Only recently, the education law in Hungary changed, so that instead of 6 exams in major subjects, he now has to take online 13 mid-year exams! Zarand, outstandingly, scored 100% in 12 exams and 84% in the 13th exam and that without neglecting his academic performance at ISR!

His teachers praise him and are thrilled with his dedication. Zarand has made great academic progress in a very short time. His teacher, Ms. Horvath, says about him, “Not very often you can meet a student who constantly works with such an interest, diligence and power. He never misses a class or homework, he participates in each lesson with passion and shows his well-founded knowledge every time – and this in a very calm without being loud or focused only on himself. He is definitely one of my best students ever. He is an enrichment not only for my class but also for our ISR school. If I could, I would give him the award of the year – what a great achievement!”

We are very proud to spotlight Zarand 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.
