Busy season

So much is going on at the school right now and the entire building is just buzzing with activity. Our yr 5’s have caterpillars waiting to transform into butterflies, Yr 6 (and 9) are writing their national tests, Yr 7 have started final preparations for their upcoming trip to Åland, Yr 8 plan and cook “Master Chef” meals for us to enjoy and Yr 9 make the most of their last few months here at our school.

This time of the year is also the time when we see a lot of extracurricular activities taking place, like the PTA gala, Spirit Days, IESJ World Cup to name but a few. It is extra important in this busy season to remember to not only work hard but also to take time to celebrate our growth and success.


As always it is a privilege to be principal of this outstanding school and I look forward to celebrating each student’s growth and development at the end of this academic year.

Vår medarbetare Mrs Edelswärd gjorde under hösten en studieresa till Uganda. Hon besökte myndigheter för att få kunskap om olika projekt som pågår, som till exempel återplantering av regnskog. Mrs Edelswärd besökte även en skola där hon fick chans att undervisa och samtala om utbildningsfrågor. Ytterligare besök gjordes i byar och nationalparker.

Under våren har hon haft föreläsningar för våra klasser för att informera och dela med sig om sina upplevelser i Uganda. (För fler bilder se Gallery under fliken Livet i skolan). 

Mrs Edelswärd one of our mentors made a study trip to Uganda during the autumn. She visited the authorities to gain knowledge about various projects in progress, such as reforestation of rainforest. Mrs Edelswärd also visited a school where she was given the opportunity to teach and talk about education issues. Further visits were made in villages and national parks.

During the spring, she has lectured our classes to inform and share her experiences in Uganda. ( For more pictures click on the school life tab and choose Gallery).

Welcome to spring term / vt-18

Spring term 

Welcome to a new term at IESJ. 

During the Christmas break we had some construction work done to our school with a rebuild of the assistant principals office and an addition of a second School Nurse's room. 

Our permanent school nurse Mrs Karademir is back from her maternity leave and Mrs Osmanova is staying with us for the spring term which is a great addition to our student care team for the term.


In the Spring term we at IESJ have much to look forward to like our Winter Sports day, our Spirit day, our trips to Åland (yr 6) and Poland (yr 9) to name but a few. 

Spring term also means National Tests and as we head into the test season I would like to take the opportunity to remind all our students of the support lessons that we have in each subject every week. Do take the opportunity to visit support and get help from your teachers to make sure you reach your full potential. 


Welcome back, 

/Mrs Viljosson, Principal
