The last two weeks we have been treated to some fantastic performances from our music department. The Choir at Lucia. The School band and The Staff Band for end of term.
I wish all our students and guardians a lovely Christmas break and I am looking forward to seeing you back here on January 9th!
On Thursday November 29th, IESB sent it's senior Handball team to compete in the first handball tournament of the inter IES sports program. The IESB team was made up of 15 students from Year 7-9. 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.
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!
Students overseeing the voting stations proudly report on the high turn out of voters. Volunteer are busy after the end of classes this Friday afternoon tabulating the ballots.
Look for the Results after the National elections are final.
I wish you all a warm welcome back to a new school term! Although summer lingers, a season of new beginnings has begun here at IESB and I am confident that there are many great memories waiting to be made.
We are now in the third full week of school, and everything on campus is in full swing. In the first week of school, our students participated in team-building activities carefully designed by their new mentors to help the year groups bond in preparation for the coming year. We also held our 4th annual Brommaloppet, 6 kilometers run by students and staff in Judarskogen. It’s always a hit and this year didn’t disappoint.
Looking forward to the fall, our schedule is, of course, filled with homework, classwork, and tests, but it is also packed with all sorts of events aimed to inspire, motivate, and recharge our students so they get the most out of their time with us. A few things to keep in mind when you plan out the month are Startup Talks September 13th-14th and the annual Autumn Fair on September 22nd. More information will be sent out via Schoolsoft and class mentors. You are also still able to order school clothing from Skolgarderoben until September 17th.
While this is the beginning for some students and the final year for others, it is an altogether great year to be a part of IESB, and I am excited to see what the school year has in store for us.
