We are back to school!

From the Principal

Internationella Engelska Skolan can rejoice at a fantastic start to the academic year in august!

Our new students at Primary School is indeed a joyful addition. The students are settling in to the school and the ambience is good. Our before and after school care, Primary Club, cooperates with the school and the environment at Primary Club is highly pedagogically influenced and very inviting.

The relocation of grade 6 to our Senior School building has all gone well and they are now settled in.

We can also gladly announce that Junior School through hard work has been awarded “Grön Flagg” on behalf of Internationella Engelska Skolan i Eskilstuna. We are extremely proud! My thanks go out to all of you who have taken part of this project, Ms. Truedsson amongst others.

During these first weeks of the semester, in addition to the regular curriculum, we have even had time for Skoljoggen which benefits SOS Children's Villages and we managed to raise no less than 12.000 SEK. Fantastic!

Grade 9 was visited by Magnus Nordin, author of "Princessan och mördaren" which lead to a nomination for Augustpriset. This book in particular is currently a part of grade 9's reading literature.

Within the subject of social science we have been honored with a visit from Benjamin Grunfelt. Benjamin is an amazing 85 year old man who in an inspiring, vivid and very moving way shared his real life horrific experiences from World War II's concentration camp Auschwitz. Not a soul left the lecture hall unaffected.

To bring awareness to good values we continuously work with "Veckans ord" which aims to highlight the essence of using our language towards one another in a respectful manner.

Good deeds are also In focus. The Good Deeds Project has been initiated with a joint "Good Deed breakfast” for all students.

We are now full of anticipation for the weeks that are to come.
