Meeting the queen of Sweden is something that most of us will never have the chance to do.


But six students from Internationella Engelska Skolan met with Queen Silvia after their first-class performance in Dagens Nyheter's Nutidsorientering contest.


Ella Jennersjö, Ellen Åskag, Shlimoon Benyamin, Erica Äng and Sara Lindberg, from Internationella Engelska Skolan's schools in Järfälla, Eskilstuna, Jönköping, Gothenburg and Gävle were each rewarded for being the best in their län during this year's Nutidsorientering competition.


My Bodin from Internationella Engelska Skolan Karlstad also attended as the overall winner for the whole of Sweden.


As well as meeting the queen the students had the chance to speak with education minister Jan Björklund, and to attend the Nobel prize ceremony.


Meeting the six winners at the start of their busy weekend, Peter John Fyles, CEO of Internationella Engelska Skolan, took the chance to present them each with a certificate.


He said: "These children did fantastically well in this year's Nutidsorientering contest and it was an absolute pleasure to meet them and give them my personal congratulations.


"I hope that they enjoyed their time with the Queen, with Mr Björklund and at the Nobel award ceremony immensely."


As well as the fantastic individual successes of these students,  Internationella Engelska Skolan Bromma celebrated the best results of any school in Sweden while four Internationella Engelska Skolan schools, in Eskilstuna, Linköping, Karlstad and Gävle were named the best school in their respective counties.


Meanwhile three classes from Internationella Engelska Skolan schools, 8A in Eskilstuna, 9D in Jönköping and 9A in Karlstad were each also named the best in their county.

Grades 1-3: Internationella Engelska Skolan Jönköping

Youngsters in Jönköping will soon have the chance to study with Internationella Engelska Skolan from an even earlier age.

The school already has more than 600 students yeargroups 4-9 in a beautiful, newly-refurbished building in Huskvarna.

Now for the first time it will open its doors to yeargroups 1-3, meaning that the Principal, Simon Varley will be welcoming children aged between seven and ten to the school.

Peter John Fyles, Chief Executive Officer of Internationella Engelska Skolan said: "We are delighted to be opening one of our schools to children in grades one to three for the first time. Internationella Engelska Skolan believes in teaching children to command English, which is the key to the world.

"Teaching children from a younger age will help them to master the language even earlier, and make sure that English is always a part of their lives.

"I look forward to meeting our youngest students and their parents from August 2012."

Tibetan students: Students home in Tibet on a break from their studies in China

Internationella Engelska Skolan is pleased to announce that it is looking forward to working more closely with the Swedish Tibetan Society for School and Culture.
 
Previously Internationella Engelska Skolan has been involved with the charity in helping to start the Lumbumgang school in the Tibetan Autonomous Region, 72km from Lhasa and sometimes known as The English School.
 
The school and its 57 pupils are thriving, but this is just one of the 108 schools that the Swedish Tibetan Society is involved with.
 
Peter John Fyles, Chief Executive Officer of Internationella Engelska Skolan, said: "I am delighted that we have been able to support the Swedish Tibetan Society in the past, but there is so much more to do.
 
"This is a very worthy cause which understands how vital education is for these young people.  I know that the passionate educators working throughout Internationella Engelska Skolan will find this cause as moving as I do."
 
A member of the society's board, Allan Fotheringham, recently met with managers from Internationella Engelska Skolan to talk about the need for funding to help gifted Tibetan students move on to higher education.
 
The cost of a university education in China means that capable students who have worked hard at school often may not be able to attend.  The society is keen that the children who work so hard at school have prospect of higher education to help them realise their potential.
 
Internationella Engelska Skolan is now considering what it can do to help these worthy young people take the next steps in their education.  An art auction is already being planned which will help to raise money for the higher education of Tibetan children.
 
Mr Fotheringham said: "Our organization's logo has a large jewel in the center. This jewel represents the children of Tibet who, when given the opportunity to study can shine and show their true potential. They are the future of Tibet. We hope you will help us to let them shine."
 
It is hoped that schools throughout the organization will consider this worthy cause when choosing the charities that they would like to work with in the future.
