Student Work

IESB Nobel Prize

Winners of the IESB Nobel Prize - Iris Berglund and Fabian Mannervik

On Monday, 17 December, grade nine students and teachers gathered in the Aula to celebrate this year's IESB Nobel Prize winners in Swedish and English. This awards ceremony, a longstanding tradition at our school, followed several weeks of hard work where grade nine students were asked to write an original short story for both their Swedish and English classes. Out of 187 students, six nominees and one winner were chosen for each subject by a committee of teachers.


Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the PTA, grade nines enjoyed a slice of cake and a glass of julmust while their subject teachers read the winner's stories aloud. In addition, two representatives from the PTA presented each winner with a cash prize.


This year we are proud to announce the following winners:  

  • Fabian Mannervik, Swedish
  • Iris Berglund, English

Congratulations to the winners, and good work to all the grade nine students!!

The team performed extremely well and finished the day winning the championship trophy!! Congratulations to all the students on the team and big thanks to Mr. Riverol for coaching. 


IES Cross Country Running

On Tuesday September 25th, IESB competed in the first ever IES Cross Country Running event. Our school sent 32 students to Hellasgården to compete against six other IES schools. There were six different races featuring girls and boys from Year 4 all the way up to Year 9.

IESB had an incredible performance, coming first place in three of the six races as well as having ten students place in the top three of their race. Thanks to the efforts of all 32 students, IESB finished the event as the overall champion!!

Just as impressive as the race results was the level of sportsmanship and spirit that our students showed. Huge congratulations to all the students that participated and helped bring the trophy home to Bromma!
