Nobel Day, Lucia, and Science Fair

Nobel Day, Lucia, and Science Fair

It is hard to believe that the Autumn term is soon ending. We have had a very busy week at IESÖ beginning last Friday with our Nobel Day celebration and julbord. It was fun to see many students and staff dressed for the occasion, and Student Council did an excellent job to host the lunch and handout ‘Nobel Prizes’ to students in each year level for positive actions they have performed this school year.

On Wednesday, we had two Lucia performances by our year 4 students. It was a very full dining room, and the students did an excellent job to perform in front of so many people. I know that the students, music teachers, and Junior School staff put in a lot of hard work for the show, and it was great that many families were able to attend! We also had a group of year 7 and 8 students that planned and presented their own performance at Barnkliniken, USÖ. I am happy to see the work of these students continue after their fundraiser for Barnkliniken in November.

Today, we had our annual Science Fair, and it was amazing to see all the learning that has taken place and the ideas from our students. I know many students have been putting a lot of time and effort into their projects, and the Science Department, student cafeteria staff and many other school personnel have been staying into the evening to help students research and work on their projects.

The last week of this term will also have many special moments with Student Choice activities, a Mentor Day, and our end of term ceremony. Please remember to check our Facebook page to see updates and photos from the various activities.

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!

Science Fair 2017-18

Science Fair 2017-18

A big congratulations to our finalists and to our science department for a superb 15th Science Fair!  The students' time and effort paid off with many amazing ideas and projects. This is one of the IES events that former students always remember when they leave us. It really captures the imaginations of students past and present.
