Graduation celebrations for students

Graduation: The class of 2011 celebrate their time at Internationella Engelska Skolan i Eskilstuna

Ceremonies to honour the talent and hard work of thousands of students across Sweden were held as the school year came to a close.

Year nines at Internationella Engelska Skolan's grundskolar put on their smart blue caps and gowns for graduation events in theatres, parks, aulas and even sports halls throughout the country.

As each graduating student received their diploma with the congratulations of their Principal and teachers, awards were also given out to those who have made the biggest effort, achieved the top grades or shown the most praiseworthy behaviour towards others.

Peter John Fyles, Chief Executive Officer of Internationella Engelska Skolan, said: "Graduation events are a source of pride, not only to the children and parents of the top year, but to the whole school community.

"As well as being a chance to bid a fond farewell to our graduating classes, the ceremonies are the perfect opportunity to honour everyone involved for the hard work that has been put in by parents, teachers and students.

"I would like to give each graduating student my best wishes for the future as they move on, well prepared for fresh challenges."

As the year nines' caps were thrown in the air and the summer holidays began, year eight classes at Internationella Engelska Skolan schools can now look forward to taking their place as the top year when the new term starts in August.

Next year it will be their turn to set a good example to younger years and to see if they can achieve even better results than those who have gone before.
