Nobel Day, Lucia, and Science Fair

From the Principal
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.
