Together We Stand is IES Bromma's Anti-bullying Project
The school is a social and cultural meeting place with both the opportunity and the responsibility to strengthen this ability among all who work there. Together we stand up against racism, gender discrimination, and bullying.
What is racism?
- Racism is a culture, not just an act.
- Behaviours, policies, rules, etc. that result in a continued unfair advantage to some people and unfair or harmful treatment of others based on race.
- It has been created by the privileged to have power over the unprivileged.
How can racism be deconstructed?
- To acknowledge that it exists in our society and within ourselves
- It has to be actively prevented in the first place and should never be left unattended.
- Since it has been created by the oppressor, the privileged, it is their responsibility to work together to abolish it.
No one should be subjected to discrimination on the grounds of gender, ethnic affiliation, religion or other belief systems, transgender identity or its expression, sexual orientation, age or functional impairment, or other degrading treatment. All such tendencies should be actively combated. Xenophobia and intolerance must be confronted with knowledge, open discussion, and active measures.
This Fall term we will have theme days that will give the students time to discuss these topics with their peers and teachers. The goals for these theme days are:
To understand your unique identities - Identity
To understand our diversities - Diversity
To understand what discrimination is - Discrimination
To raise awareness about the language we use - Words Matter
This is a school wide initiative and the responsibility of everyone at IES Bromma.
Here at IESB we offer a two year, extensive IGCSE Math course through 8th and 9th grade.
IGCSEs, or International General Certificate of Secondary Education, are the most popular international qualifications for students in this age range. They provide an opening to international studies, helping students get placements at universities abroad. It also helps expand students' knowledge well beyond the scope of 9th grade, and far into what they learn in 10th grade.
Any student who takes an IGCSE subject will be gaining a qualification that is recognised globally. They are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends and so are an ideal foundation for higher level courses such as AS and A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
At our school the IGCSE course in Math is run by Mr. Smyth and Ms. Strandberg. If you as a student are looking to extend your knowledge and elevate your profil . Not only is it truly international - it gives students more options than any other international qualification. That means more subjects to choose from, more ways to learn and more ways to succeed.
Please contact Mr Smyth if you would like to attend these classes.
