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!

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.

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.

Queen Silvia reads ‪‎IESÖ‬ students' wishes to the UN council

During our UN day a few weeks back, Junior School wrote wishes for a better world for children. Ms Wiren forwarded these to the Swedish Embassy and from there they found their way to Queen Silvia, who read them aloud to a UN assembly, marking the 25th Anniversary of the UN Child Convention. Isn't that amazing! Watch from 06.10 minutes to hear their wishes: http://webtv.un.org/search/is-the-world-a-better-place-for-children-inte...
