 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

Taco Night: A Wonderful Year 4 Event

Taco Night: A Wonderful Year 4 Event

Teaching does not need to be limited to textbooks and whiteboards. With our fun school activities for kids, learning in school becomes more interesting and enjoyable.

On Thursday October 11th, IESL invited all year 4 students and their guardians to a nice evening to say thank you to the students and the guardians for the good start  to the school year. This evening was designed to start a community with the newest students that are now apart of our school.

It was also an evening to engage the students in something new and to get everyone involved with school life. The year 4 students voted to have a Taco Night and invite their families to join them and the evening was fantastic.  We had tacos, we had a PTA lead competition, we had ice cream, we had a fun quiz with prizes and everyone there had a chance to meet the staff of IESL.

We are looking forward to having more special nights at IESL.  Keep your eyes open for the next event or meeting.

Agnes Hedlund Has The Power To Transform

Agnes Hedlund Has The Power To Transform

What happens when you take a few pieces of plywood, a lot of colorful paint and an incredibly talented artist? You transform a space, influnce a school community and brighten up a room.  This is exctly what happened at IES Linköping over Höstlov.

IES Linköping is fortunate enough to be sprinkled with talented students.  We have students that excel in academics and sports, but we also have a lot of incredible artist in our school. 

One of these inspiring artist is Agnes Hedlund in year 9.  She has created a colorful, powerful and capitivating mural in our Common Room.  Her inventivness has left the school feeling happier and stronger.

All of us at IES Linköping are thankful for Agnes Hedlund's hard work, skill and inspiration.

Skolval 2018 - A Way To Practice Democracy

Skolval 2018 

IES Linköping began the school year by studying Democracy and Elections in every year and in different subjects. The Social Studies department covered the area in all years - Beslutsfattande och politiska idéer. English department compared the ruling systems in UK, US and South Africa. Science department looked the political parties solutions for sustainability. Mathematic Department looked at the maths behind election procedures.  

Skolval 2018 (https://skolval2018.se/om/) is organised on national level and the project aims to teach students the democratic process and give them the opportunity to practise it. During the last election in 2014, around 500,000 students in years 7-9 and Gymnasiet participated.

IES Linköping gave our student the opportunity to be part of this. Groups of students worked during the day as Election Officials / Voting Clerks, supervised by the teacher in charge. Classes came to the polling station, the auditorium, to do the voting according the instructions made by Skolval 2018. As much as possible the process was the same as the real election.

Above: Khadijah Wali, Melker Kuzminski and Awo Mohamed Abdi are working as Voting Clerks.

In the afternoon the Election Officials (students) counted the votes. The counting was public and interested students or staff members could come to auditorium and watch the procedure.

Above: A lot of counting in action     

Below: Mr Ståhl Engström is supervisor. Caisa Thor, Arian Akbari, Saga Soomro, Adam Nählinder and Daria Kuchinskaya did a great job as Election Officials.

The results of Skolval 2018 will be public online for three months. The results are divided into schools, regions and national level.

Harry Potter Week 2018

Harry Potter Week 2018

Harry Potter Week was a week where libraries around the world celebrate JK Rowling and her book series. This year the theme was Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We had a quiz and a colouring competition in the library for students to enter and win cinema tickets.

We held a movie night in the Aula on 1 February, where we showed the film of 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. The students loved it. They were allowed to bring in snacks and spend an afternoon in Rowling's exciting world of wizards and magic.

We were inspired by Bloomsbury Publishers, who promote Harry Potter Week once a year. Since the books are so popular, we decided to let our students enjoy immersing themselves in her books.

It was a very successful week. We had many entries for the competitions, especially the younger years who were very excited to colour and get creative for the competition.

Innovative Woodwork Designs

Innovative Woodwork Designs

This Spring term, year 9 were given a project with the following brief; 'to research, design and create a container or shelf'.  This broad instruction gave the students free reign to flex their creativity.  The end product had to be practical and useful whilst showing an eye for artistic design.  Here are some examples of the finished products, which will indeed be put to good use in their new home.
