From the Principal

Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year!

On behalf of the staff at Internationella Engelska Skolan i Örebro, I am pleased to welcome everyone to the 2018-19 school year! I am looking forward to all the opportunities a new year brings and very excited about the preparations we have made during the summer. It is very important that everyone in the school community works closely together to create a successful and positive experience this school year.

The students' first day is Monday, August 20th, and guardians should check SchoolSoft for more information. We would also like to inform all our guardians that our autumn Parents' Meeting will be on August 29th. Years 4-6 will start at 17:30 in the dining hall, and Years 7-9 will start at 17:30 in their mentor classrooms. 

I would also like to remind you to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with everything that is going on! 

Welcome to a new school year!

-Michael Ballard (Principal IESÖ)

International Food Week

International Food Week

This week our students have been enjoying cuisine from five different countries as part of our annual International Food Week! We finished the week with French crêpes as a nice treat before the weekend. We would like to give a huge thanks to Mr. Suastegui and our kitchen staff for all their hard work! 

Winter Fun!

Winter Fun!

We have had a busy month at IESÖ with year 9 visits to the Riksdag in Stockholm and Örebro Länsteater, students visiting from Spain, Winter Sports Day, and Valentine’s Day. 

The Sports Break got off to a great start for 113 IESÖ students with awesome weather and skiing in Romme! This is the fifth year we have offered the trip, and it's more popular than ever! We'd like to give a huge thanks to Mr. Åkerstedt and Mr. Suastegui for organising it and to staff members, parents and colleagues at IES Falun who helped make the ski trip possible!
