We had another fantastic turnout for our annual Christmas bazaar last weekend. This year the 7th graders made gingerbread houses, but all of the classes took part in different ways. The PTA does a wonderful job creating this opportunity for the different classes to cooperate together and have a nice time together
This term in year 4 art, students were inspired by the book "Where the wild things are". They invented their own wild things and brought them to life in these models. The material they used is called plasticine. And students really loved discover to work with this kind of clay.
This term in year 4 craft and SO, we have worked with the theme "The viking age". We started the theme with a trip to Värmlands Vikingacenter and received a lot of inspiration for future work. In CRAFT students made Viking shields in wool and created jewelry of different kinds. In SO they made their own run-stone. The students have shown great enthusiasm and joy.
We have now come to the fall break. A well deserved time off for both the students and faculty who have been working extremely hard during the first months of school. We always celebrate Halloween and many dress up in the school and have a fun time together before taking the long holiday. I wish everyone a safe and restful fall break!
We had a fantastic day Friday the 5th of October celebrating our 10 year anniversary. We had lots of decorations and two assemblies with the junior and senior school students recognizing 10 years of success. Approximately 1000 students have graduated from our school over the past 10 years. Currently we have just over 800 students and they all of course over the next 10 years will be graduating with strong academic results and prepared for the next phase of their lives. I am so proud of what has been accomplished at IES Karlstad.
