We proud of our students!
Congratulations to Marina for being officially inducted into our EIS Hall of Fame!
Now, I knew Marina was a talented swimmer because she represented EIS in a 2022/23 swimming tournament when she was in Year 7 and won first place; this was against other competitors up to Year 9. However, I did not know just how talented she was until she revealed more details about her journey to swimming excellence.
Marina has been swimming since the age of 2 and actually won her first medal at the age of 5! Since then, she has acquired nearly 20 medals and multiple certificates. Marina delighted us at EIS by bringing in some of her collection and talking us through the stories behind them.
The future looks bright for Marina and she is sure to represent the school once again in any forthcoming tournaments as well as compete in external events in the Moscow region and, perhaps, beyond. Marina is a superb role model to us all at EIS, she has been disciplined and diligent in her journey, and from such a young age. She was able to explain to us all about the importance of regular training, practice and a healthy diet. Truly, an inspiration!
Well done, Marina!
We are delighted to announce Boris has entered the EIS Hall of Fame!
Boris is a multi-talented student, as we will soon find out, but it is without doubt his extraordinary academic accomplishments have landed him in the coveted EIS Hall of Fame.
For the 2020/21 academic year, Boris was able to achieve an A in his IGCSE Mathematics in when he was in Year 8! To put that in perspective, Boris achieved at 13 years of age which 16-year-old students will have been naturally proud to achieve. He actually scored 90% in that particular exam. The following year, as a Year 9 student, he achieved 87% in mock exam for Mathematics as part of his A Level course.
As mentioned earlier, Boris' talents do not just end there; for instance, he is a keen musician who can play the guitar and piano, and has done for many an EIS whole-school performance. The piano he plays especially well, and past performances for the school have been particular highlights.
He also influences the wider school community on a significant scale. In the past, he organised a chess tournament for the Secondary school and is himself a formidable player. For this reason, and those mentioned above, Boris becomes another deserved inductee of the EIS Hall of Fame.
I am delighted to announce Karim Yanchinov has entered the EIS Hall of Fame! Karim is an accomplished CrossFit athlete and represents the school with distinction. He has many accolades under his belt, but during the 2023 summer break, Karim, achieved even more noteworthy success.
For the Russian National Championships, in which Karim competed against 17 elite CrossFit athletes (many older and heavier as it was for the under 16's category) he finished in 5th position - an incredible achievement. There was also a pull up competition where Karim came in 1st position after achieving a total of 20; he was unlucky as he had 5 removed for harsh reasons. Finally, Karim managed to win first place in the Moscow Cup (GTO) for the under 15's category. Perhaps, his crowning achievement so far.
Not just amazing feats, but the likelihood of even greater success makes Karim a very promising, gifted and talented EIS student!
