 Letter from the Principal VT2020

Greetings Students, Parent and Guardians

Here’s to a happy, healthy and successful 2020! It’s hard to imagine that we are already in Feburary.

This is an important final term for our students, one where they have the opportunity to continue to improve their grades and contribute positively to their classroom environment, and the school as a whole. Please keep insisting on attendance at school, and also the completion of all school assignments. Thank you.

The collaborative partnership between school and parents/guardians contributes to your child’s success at school. Please continue to be supportive by staying informed of your child’s responsibilities at school by logging onto Schoolsoft regularly. Please keep your child’s mentor informed if you have a query, or you have a concern or when you would like to share a positive message too. Thank you.

Let’s have the best Spring term together!

Mr Mark McCarthy

IES Linköping's Work With Values

IES Linköping's Work With Values

Dear Students, Guardians and Staff,

As we embark upon a new term and look to enrich the students’ experience of school at Internationella Engelska Skolan Linköping yet further, particular attention will (continue to) be paid to an education in values (as adumbrated in, for example, Lgr 11, ch. 1 & 2). 

The view taken by the school is that a values-based education is the most effective way not only of developing the (cognitive) critical thinking faculties of our students but also of developing the requisite (non-cognitive) ‘character’ to prepare them for responsible participation in a democratic society.

Inculcating this kind of thinking and character into the students is not necessarily limited to the morgonsamling or the time spent with mentors during klassråd, for example, but permeates every single aspect of the school. Each and every lesson is a study not only of the subject in question, but also includes the active promotion of values that form the bedrock of any well-functioning society. Values such as consideration for and solidarity with others, resilience in the face of adversity, a curiosity for learning, and the courage to stand up for what is right are but a few of the values that form the fabric of every lesson (and beyond) in that the staff themselves embody such values as well as actively incorporate them into any dialogue regarding, for example, behavioural norms. Framed and laminated manifestoes containing a summary of the school’s values (and - very importantly - the connection between the school’s rules and the values upon which the former is predicated) are in the throes of going up all over the school and serve as an ever-present and visual reminder of the importance of thinking in such a way and being of such character that serves the best interests of the whole learning community at Internationella Engelska Skolan Linköping.

It is this focus on values that constitutes the essence of the school and the means through which its three pillars (viz. bilingualism, ‘tough love’, and high academic expectations for all) are secured. Expressed metaphorically, it is not merely (yet) another component of an increasingly full, educational plate. Values education is the plate itself.

Mr M. Garrett

 Team Rynkeby Skolloppet 

 Team Rynkeby Skolloppet 

Friday the 3rd of May our school participated in the Rynkeby school run! The route was 850 meters and the students ran as many laps within the given time of 20 minutes. For every lap completed by a student, the school will contribute money. The warm up was at the front of the school.

Here is a hightlight from Corren about our event and a reason why we did it: 

LINKÖPING: Sandro Aziz blev som 9-åring friskförklarad från den leukemi han fick när han var 1 år. Nu ska hans framtida klasskamrater springa ett lopp för barncancerfonden. "Han var alltid solstrålen på sjukhuset".

Tredje maj är det dags för "Team Rynkeby skolloppet" som arrangeras runt om i norden. Då ska Internationella engelska skolans 700 elever springa en årskurs i taget. Föräldrar och elever får själva välja om de vill bidra med pengar eller inte, och skolan bidrar också med en summa. Målet är att loppet ska bli ett återkommande evenemang för skolans elever.

– Barncancerfonden gör ett fantastiskt arbete med att ordna med aktiviteter för barn som har eller har haft cancer. Och för de som har mist sitt barn. De gör otroligt mycket, säger Martina Blom Bergman.’ - Jennifer Berg Eidebo av Corren 

‘The whole school runs for Sandro

LINKÖPING: As 9-year-old Sandro Aziz was declared well-off from the leukemia he received when he was 1 year old.  Now his future classmates will run a race for the children's cancer fund.  "He was always the sunbeam in the hospital".

The third of May is the time for the "Team Rynkeby school race" which is arranged around the Nordic countries.  Then the International English School's 700 students will run one year at a time.  Parents and students can choose for themselves whether they want to contribute money or not, and the school also contributes with a sum.  The goal is for the race to be a recurring event for school students.

 - The Children's Cancer Foundation does a fantastic job of arranging activities for children who have or have had cancer.  And for those who have lost their child.  They do a lot, says Martina Blom Bergman.’ - Jennifer Berg Eidebo of Corren
