Our year 6 math lessons are working with coding right now. They are using programming skills to create their own video games. I have played several of them myself and they are absolutely fantastic with the imagination they have used.

We had a fantastic week of focus day, with many students updating their overall results with enrichment material provided by the teachers. Our year 7 students went to the river and collected water samples to analyze in the lab. Absolutely fantastic to see the engagement by everyone!
It is hard to believe that the school year will be over in just 2 months time. 8 working weeks with all the holidays. It is amazing how quickly the time goes. It must be the fact that we are having so much fun in school every day.I can honestly say that it is a joy to see the students working and playing all day long both in and out of the classrooms. They really enjoy their time together. It is also fantastic to see the planning which is done by the staff to make such a harmony of learning and socializing. Wonderful job, everyone!
Yesterday our junior and senior choirs sang for the students who sat and ate their Easter meal during lunch. It was a very nice moment to enjoy each others' company and wish each other a Happy Easter before leaving for the day. I wish everyone a very relaxing and enjoyable Easter holiday! Lessons resume on the 9th of April.
A big congratulations to Hanna 7C, Malin 8D and Isak 8E who placed 3rd in the regional final of the math competition Pythagoras Quest (mathematics competition) at Älvkullen! Not only did they reach the podium, they also earned a team bonus of 1500kr.
This was an amazing effort due the fact that our team was one of the youngest consisting of only grade 7 and 8 students. We as a school are already looking forward to next year's qualification and hopefully another regional final where we can improve our 3rd place result.
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!
It was a very well visited Open House at our school on 15/2 with over 400 people coming to see what is happening at our school. We are very glad that so many came and were able to see the fantastic work we are doing.
Today is our annual winter sports day. We have all kinds of activities planned both indoors and outdoors. Many students chose to go skiing in Kil. It is great that the gym teachers have helped organize this together with the mentors and PTA.
I was walking around school campus today on my break duty and came across the year 7 classes building wind shelters. What a fantastic team building opportunity for them. They had a great time!
Now we have had a well deserved winter break. The staff have been planning all day long today in preparation to receive the students for the first day back tomorrow for the new spring term! The building has been very empty during these last couple of weeks without all the staff and students in the normal schedules, so I am looking forward to having everyone back as normal!
