Year 7 bench project

Year 7 bench project

We have a lot of school pride at IES and our year 7 students are currently freshening up the benches around the school. It has been a few years since we have done this and it felt time again. We are looking forward to the final projects!


On the 6th of February, all of our grade eight classes participated in Teknikåttan. Out of approximately 72 classes in the whole of Värmland, six classes made it to the regional finals. Two of our grade eight classes, 8D and 8E, have qualified for the regional finals, with many students achieving high scores. 

The regional finals will take place on the 19th April at Karlstad University. They will compete in four different categories. Good luck students!
