Spring is in the air.

Dear Parents and Students,

Spring is now with us and we are so fortunate to have a schoolyard full of trees and bushes where we can see the seasons change. Those arriving early can even glimpse a hare or red squirrel.

We have busy weeks ahead filled with academic events and our annual school activities.

Please make sure you have the date for the Annual Spring Fair in your diaries. This year it is on Saturday 19 May.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin

End of Term 2017

Dear Parents and Students,

The Autumn Term 2017 finished on a high note. This year we had a week of student choice activities which was a perfect end to the term. Our staff worked hard to prepare a wide range of activities for our students to choose from and the school was a hive of activity both inside and out. The week culminated in our annual sports day for Years 6-9 at the sports centre adjacent to Linköping's University.  Once again we were able to make the most of the excellent facilities which they offer. While Years 6-9 were out of school on the last day Years 4 and 5 had the entire school building to themselves and could enjoy the final day of term including a special performance in the Aula.

This is an example of what IES does best, we plan and make good use of the time available to us making sure that our students are busy learning right up to the last minute. 

Seasons Greetings from IES Linköping!

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

Spring Term

Spring is in the air and we are most fortunate to be able to witness this first hand in our lovely park. It is good to be able to take a minute to stand still and enjoy the surroundings.

We are now in the process of registering students for the coming year and look forward to meeting the students in person when they visit us at the beginning of April. If you are interested in a place for next year in Years 6-9 then please get in touch.

The rest of the term is filled with National Tests, parents meetings, and lots of activities for students both inside and outside of school. Towards the end of the school year we will be holding our Annual Spring Fair on Saturday 20 May. You are most welcome to join us.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin

Lots to do and so little time left.

Dear Parents,

The term is passing so very quickly and we have lots of activities planned in the coming weeks. In addition, school teams have been participating in chess, swimming, mathematics and volleyball competitions at district, regional and national level. Some have won medals  and others have done us proud by representing the school in the best way possible with good behaviour and a positive attitude.

The two main events this term are Spring Fair on 21 May and Graduation on 9 June.We will shortly be posting information about the last day of term and the Graduation Ceremony on Schoolsoft. 

We are also well on our way to completing arrangements for the coming school year and this information will be available to you before the end of term.

Regards,

Mary Dahlin, Principal

Afternoon Tea in Linköping

What a wonderful time we had on 26 November when parents and students who are in our queue visited the  school.

We offered our visitors the opportunity to meet our students and teachers during a guided tour.  

This was followed by a presentation in our Aula and Afternoon tea was served in our restaurant so that parents, students and staff could meet and chat.

We are looking forward to seeing many of our visitors again during the Spring Term as we prepare to welcome new students for the school year 2016/2017.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin, Principal

Another successful Halloween Party

Dear Students, Parents and Staff.

The PTA have recently hosted two Halloween parties and more than 500 of our students attended.

We are really grateful to everyone who helped at these parties. The PTA have built up the reputation of holding a very, scary party and expectations ran high.The students were not disappointed and really enjoyed themselves. It is a pleasure to be able to hold events of this size and our students are really terrific in their behaviour and genuine enjoyment during these evenings.

We are now looking forward to the next event which is "Afternoon tea" on 26 November for those who are in our queue. This is an opportunity to meet our staff and student ambassadors as we open our doors to parents and children who wish to enrol in our school.

A warm welcome to our future students.

Yours sincerely,

Mary Dahlin, Principal IES Linköping

A wonderful start to the school year.

Dear Parents and Students,

We have had a wonderful start to the new term. The students have been getting involved with their new classes, getting to know their teachers and finding their way with their schedules. It has been a delight to hear them laughing and playing in the summer sun during breaks.

Our magnificent building has had some work done to the facade during the summer and we are proud to have such an impressive building and surroundings. 

You will all have received current information about the term and days to come, if there are any questions do not hestitate to get in touch.

We have a couple of spaces left in some years so please get in touch if you are interested in starting this term.

Best wishes, 

Mary Dahlin
