IESB CPR Training / Certification Program

IESB CPR Training / Certification Program

This term, IESB was proud to launch it's CPR training/ certification program across all Year levels at the school. This program has involved all students being taught and training in valuable CPR and First Aid skills according to the Svenska rådet för hjärt-lungräddning (HLR) regulations. 

The goal of this program is to repeatedly expose students to CPR and First Aid skills each year, while introducing new and more complex skills as students get older. Year 9 students finish their training with an official CPR certification test. Successful completion of this testing allows Year 9 students to graduate from IESB with an official HLR certificate of qualification. The last testing session was completed during week 16, and IESB is extremely proud to have over 170 Year 9 students graduating this year with CPR certification.

These students are not only able to perform CPR and assess the condition of a victim, but also can use an AED machine, place a victim in the recovery position, and assist those who are choking. The PE department would like to thank both our school nurses (Ulrika Lindquist & Elisabet Bergqvist) for their continued support and assistance during our training and testing, and the PTA for their generous contribution to the program. This contribution has allow IESB to purchase high quality CPR dolls leading to much more accurate training and testing for students.

As I sit at my desk writing this letter, I can hear the dribble of basketballs on the court and the sound of happy children out playing in the schoolyard - Spring has arrived, and it has brought the sunshine with it! Spring brings with it a special sort of energy and excitement, and we can definitely see the difference that makes in the school corridors and in the classrooms. I am excited to share with you some of the many exciting things we have planned over the next weeks here at IESB.

After returning from Easter break, the race to the finish line started with a bang! School dress-up days, special concerts, focused subject themes in the classrooms, and who can forget National Tests? The school Commencement Ceremony will be here before we know it, and then everyone is off for a relaxing summer. Everyone hold on to your hats!

On Tuesday we held our schoolwide Eurovision song contest. The Modern Language department did a great job putting on the song contest. Ida A won the French portion of the evening singing Je Vole. For the winning German song, Louise A took the honor with Halt dich an mir fest. And last, but certainly not least, Mikael L’s rendition of Por Quererte took home the cake. We look forward to sending Ida, Louise, and Mikaela to represent IESB at the grand finale in Gävle!

National testing season is now in full swing as our Year 6 and Year 9 students prepare for standardized subject testing in Math, Science, English, Modern Languages, and Social Science. This can be an intense period of time, but our students and instructors always take the extra pressure in stride and our average testing results can certainly speak for themselves - We consistently work together as a stellar team!

As always, I wish you a pleasant week and a great month. Onward!

Information for IESB Fundraising Day

Information for IESB Fundraising Day

On April 29th we have our fundraising day, a fine tradition at this school. The idea of this day is that all students get the day off to spend a little time earning a small amount of money for a good cause.

The money they earn will go to the organisation SOS Children's VIllages, who works for and towards children in need throughout the world.

Our contribution will go to the children of Sarajevo, in Bosnia & Hercegovina. A recomended amount to contribute with is 100 to 200 kronor.
