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!

November update

Hello IESÖ families!

As we continue into the autumn term and have many activities and events occurring at school, I would like to give you an update of what’s going at IESÖ.

This week it was really nice to meet with the IESÖ PTA to discuss their plans for the future and the special topics they would like to discuss in the meetings later this year. The next meeting will take place on February 7th, and parents have asked that we invite a representative from the construction project in Österport to give information and explain how it might affect the school. I hope that you can join us then!

Last week we had oral national tests in years 6 and 9. I have heard from the teachers that they were very pleased with how the students performed! Students in years 4 and 5 attended the skolbio at Roxy and had Student Choice activities, while the students in years 7 and 8 raised money for Barnkliniken in Örebro. It was great to see students working together for such an important cause.

We are looking forward to the next month with many activities and special days leading up to the end of term. Please remember to check the school’s Facebook page to see photos and news of what’s happening at school.

Thank you for reading and have a nice weekend!
