It feels like we skipped winter this year, we seem to have had one long extended autumn leading into an early spring. We hope some of you found some snow somewhere during sportlov.
Spring term is always broken up into 6-7 week blocks, giving us and the students a chance to recharge before the next intense stretch. The first national tests have been written by year 6, and in week 11, year 9 will sit Swedish. Tests have been written, work has been assessed and students are receiving feedback. In the midst of all this serious work we’ve taken time to have fun with Nutidsorientering, House Day Competitions, Valentine Day competition (year 5 won again!) and Winter Sports Day.
Our Student council represented us well in an event in the kommun, and IESJ came second in Stockholm in Swedish in the Språkolympiad! Our older students did excellently in the IGCSE exams and did us proud. We have had klassråds on the theme of respect and how we speak to one another, and assemblies for year 7-9 on alcohol and drugs. Our younger students have learnt to “bråka smartare”. There is something happening all the time!
Hope that you had a relaxing break, and that your children, (our students) are ready for this next stretch.
