Welcome to the beginning of the 2023-2024 school year. We are proud to be celebrating Internationella Engelska Skolan Sverige turning 30 this school year. Our founder, Barbara Bergström, is commemorating this with a second addition of the book “Tough Love”. If you would like to know more, IES Head Office will be sharing news about the new edition in the central social media channels during the autumn term and on the central webpage.
We started by kicking off the first week with an amazing welcome back class/ year level day. New and returning students had an opportunity to meet their new mentors and classmates. We quickly jumped into the regular schedule on day two and having visited every class I am happy to report that staff and students are doing wonderfully. The parent / mentor evenings were highly attended and appreciated by everyone. Week 37 will bring the SPT’s and offer a great time for students, parents and mentors to set priorities for the 2023-2024 school year. As always, please get involved at the school by being a student council member, joining different clubs, the food council, and we highly encourage the parents to volunteer as class parent representatives or to take part in different outing activities happening at the school.
During the term, we will continue working with the insurance company in order to get a large area of the playground fixed. While this is being tended to the students are able to utilize the gym halls, during some of the lunch breaks, to play football and have an area to enjoy. We are looking forward to parent mingle evenings later in the term, culture days week 51 and Year Level 8 two week PRAO at the end of the autumn term.
