From the Principal

Welcome back to a new school year.

Dear Students and Parents, 

Following the summer break the school is now filled with our students, just as it should be.

We are starting the new school year with a strong team of staff.  We are pleased to be able to bring new members of staff to IES Linköping and welcome back others who are returning.  Other changes are an improved schedule, a refurbished Home and Consumer Studies room and some new furniture for the Common Room.

We are starting the term with renewed energy and enthusiasm for the coming year and look forward to meeting parents at our Parents Evenings in September.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin, Principal

Student Choice Week

Student Choice Week

The second installment of student choice week took place in warm and sunny May.  So it was a real treat to make the most of the wonderful outdoors for many of the activities.  There was ecology in tinnerö, volleyball at trädgårdsföreningen, rocket building on the school yard, painting at the cathedral,  hiking through vidingsjö, martial arts in the orchard plus many more engaging projects. The video below gives a quick snapshot of the student's work during this week.

Farewell to Year 9 at Graduation

Farewell to Year 9 at Graduation

Graduation is a joyous occasion but also a time of sadness as we say farewell to our year 9 students. The students have had a challenging yet rewarding year; studying hard, taking national tests, getting their grades, deciding their next steps and planning their future. We are immensely proud of their achievements and, of course, these were recognised at our graduation ceremony.

Students from year 6 - 9 processed from the school building towards Konsert and Kongress in formal attire, looking proud and smart. The ceremony began with an address from our principal Ms. Dahlin, followed by an inspiring speech from our student president, Asajad Hussein. We were also treated to musical performances from four year 9 students; Kim Jonsson, Isabelle Yammin, Nathalie Andersson and Elia Tellström, all of which, were fantastic.



Each year 9 class was called to the stage to receive their awards certificate and gain a rapturous applause from family, friends and peers.

The ceremony ended as Ms. Dahlin congratulated the class of 2017, followed by confetti, pyrotechnics and a rousing rendition of the school song. Once again, congratulations year 9 and the best of luck for your future ahead of you.
