Sports week already!

It is surprising how quickly the time has flown between the Christmas Break and the Sports Break next week.

The National Tests have begun but we have also managed to have some fun with our traditional Valentine's Day activities and Year 9 danced the evening away at the Valentine's Dance to live entertainment.

Our devoted Student Council worked hard to make Week 7 a week full of camaraderie and true School Spirit. 

The Junior School are also about to make their mark with two classes qualifying for the District Final of "schackfyran", the chess competition for year 4 students. Well done Year 4!

I hope everyone has an enjoyable break!

Best Wishes,

Mary Dahlin, Principal

IESL's mathematical wizards!

On Saturday 19 January 2013, 4 students from Internationella Engelska Skolan Linköping travelled to Stockholm to take part in Danderyd Gymnasium's Annual Mathematics Competition.

Even at that stage the students had achieved successful results since they were the second largest group of students to qualify from the same school.

The students did very well and in the finals we had two top-ten prizewinners.

Well done all of you!

Our New Buildings

Dear Parents and Students,

At 10.00 tomorrow the ceremony will take place marking the start of work on the new buildings which will house our restaurant and gym hall.

All the students and staff will be present as representatives of the local authorities involved, the owners of our building and Internationella Engelska Skolans Head Office take part in this ceremony.

It is great way for us to start the term and our 10-year celebrations.

Regards,

Mary Dahlin, Principal.

A New Year and a New Term

Dear Students and Parents,

Our welcome to the Spring Term is warm, even if the weather remains chilly. We have just begun the term and are at the same time looking forward to some coming events.

This week we will be meeting the parents of those students who have been offered a place for Year 4 in August 2013. The Junior School is now well-established and the majority of our students join us in Year 4 vacancies may, however, become available throughout the year so it is well-worth enrolling via the applications page on this web-site if you would like your child to join us. If you have any questions then please e-mail or call our secretary, Monika Lundqvist e-mail: monika.lundqvist@linkoping.engelska.se tel: 013 355682

During the next few weeks we will be able to witness the start of the building work for our new gymhall and restaurant which will be ready during the school year 2013/2014. In addition we will be looking out for the start of preparations for the planned play-area at the front of the school. Things always take a little longer than expected but we are now making headway.

Internationella Engelska Skolan is celebrating its' 10-year anniversary this year and more information about this will be available as the term continues.

It is great to see our students again, full of energy and ready to work hard!

Regards,

Mary Dahlin, Principal.

In November

Dear Parents and Students,

November is upon us and we are between Halloween celebrations, and the end-of-term. Everyone is making the most of it by getting their heads down and working hard.

There were two Halloween parties recently, one for Years 4 and 5 and another for Years 6 to 9, with a fantastic turnout from parents and students alike. We have to thank the PTA who were very active in making sure that the party was a success and those parents who arranged activities. The spooky corridors are hard to beat!

We will shortly be advertising our Christmas Carol Concert to be held in the quadrangle (innergård) just before the term ends. We hope to see you there.

Best wishes,

Mary Dahlin, Principal
