IES Interschool Sports Day 2016

IES Interschool Sports Day 2016

On Friday December 16th, IESB junior school students participated in the first ever IES interschool sports day. This day involved four Stockholm IES schools hosting tournaments in different sports. Below are the schools that took part and the sports they hosted:

IES Bromma - Basketball

IES Liljeholmen - Table Tennis

IES Skärholmen - Handball

IES Huddinge - Badminton

 

IESB had a very successful day!! Our junior school teams won both the handball and basketball tournaments. We also placed first and second in boys singles badminton, first in boys doubles badminton and third in girls doubles badminton.

 

A huge thank you to the teachers that volunteered to help with the teams, and to the students for their impressive performances and representing IESB incredibly well. Great work!!

The festive period has well and truly arrived! The Christmas decorations are up, the PTA have been serving students and staff with julmust and pepparkakor and we have been enjoying lots of Lucia concerts. Our students performed a beautiful evening concert, two morning recitals and are spending the afternoon today visiting elderly care homes to delight their residents in some lovely traditional Lucia magic. 

 

With the end of the year quickly approaching, everyone at IES Bromma is busy working hard with the final assessments prior to issuing grades after a very productive term. We have our fingers crossed for great results. In December Skolverket published statistics from the 2016 National Tests and IES year 9 students achieved significantly higher results that the national average. I am very proud to say that IES Bromma achieved the highest results out of all IES schools in Swedish Year 6 and Geography Year 9 – this is a fantastic achievement and we are so proud of everyone involved in this. 

 

Our grade 8 and 9’s are out of school all this week, maybe experiencing their first days of work during PRAO. We have some really stimulating and interesting placements this year and hopefully it will enrich our students work experience and who knows, maybe even shape their futures! 

 

We had all of our grade 8 students out with Mr. Smith for a live blogging event last month which was a huge success – you can see for yourself on School Soft. As normal our sports department has been very busy and we are really looking forward to our inter-school sports days with junior inter-school sports day on Friday December 16th (week 50) and the senior inter-school sports day on Monday December 19th (week 51) – good luck to everyone involved!

 

We have had a rather creative term with Ms. Svensson taking Grade 9 out to Stadsteatern to see their production of Romeo and Juliet, a theatre visit in the school and the music department also had a “tryout” session where students and teachers alike could have a go at many musical instruments we had on loan. It turned out to be rather loud in the Aula that week, but hopefully it inspired some students to take up a new musical instrument! 

 

This term has seen us renovating the building with new windows being installed. Hopefully when everyone returns in the New Year they will return to a scaffold free school with lots of natural light!

 

A huge thank you to PTA this term with the Autumn Fair, Project Julklappen, the Literature Prize and our lovely morning Christmas treat! Your ongoing contribution to the school enhances everyone’s positive experience!

 

We look forward to the choice days next week, it looks like a fun schedule. I hope that you all have a wonderful Christmas break and enjoy yourselves and we look forward to welcoming our students back on the 11th January for a great first term in 2017!

 

Lucia

Lucia

During the Monday evening, the 12th of December, we celebrated Lucia at the school.

The evening was made for parents as the actual Lucia on the 13th of December is a busy time for the choir at the school. But on the 13th it is the students turn to see the celebration. 

As a treat, the PTA set up a tent next to the P.E. Hall and treated the students and staff to julmust and gingerbread cookies.

School Open 10th of November

Severe weather

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Due to the severe weather today we have decided to close school early today so that our students have a better possibility of getting home safely and for appropriate safety measures at school.

Mentors will be making calls home and any guardians we cannot contact the students will stay at school until further notice.

We hope that the school will be able to open and operate as normal tomorrow, please check SchoolSoft for any updates. Sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause and we hope that you too get home safe.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Mr. Segerstedt
