IB Student of the Month

Mederik Caron
A new feature of the newsletter is our IB Student of the Month. This allows us to recognise the hard work and dedication that our Diploma Programme students are showing. These students serve as role models not just for our younger learners but for all of us.

This is only Mederik's second year learning in English. He is working harder than he ever has but he is doing two things that will serve him well, not just in the Diploma Programme, but well beyond. For one, he asks for help when he needs it. While this may seem like a simple thing, students often find reasons not to ask their teachers in or out of class for a bit of extra help when they don't quite understand something. Mederik does this and it has a very positive effect on his performance and his ability to keep going. We're also always impressed by the positive attitude in the face of a challenge. Mederik doesn't get discouraged by setbacks; he takes them as learning experiences and uses them as bridges to future success. We would all do very well to follow this example. Keep going, Mederik.
What's Up at ISB?
Visit from Mikuláš - Dec. 5th
 
Those of you who live in the Czech Republic for at least some time have surely heard about Mikuláš and his companions. Mikuláš traditionally visits children and provides them with a goodie bag unless they’ve misbehaved, in which case they’d receive coal and potatoes. This tradition is celebrated at ISB in cooperation with Čejkovická primary school. 
 
PTA Winter Fair - Dec. 14th
 
Come along and celebrate the holidays with our community! On December 14th starting from 14:00 at ISB in Vinohrady. The afternoon will kick off with the drama club performance and continue with crafting, the Xmas edition bake sale, and the popular raffle. Don’t forget to buy raffle tickets at the reception desk! 
 
Last Day of School / Winter Workshops - Dec. 15th
 
December 15th is the last day of school before the winter holiday, ending at 12:30pm. Before we all leave to enjoy with family and friends, ISB students prepared a set of winter workshops and a recital for us. You are cordially invited to join the fun. Times yet to be specified.
