Felicia Olsson in Melodifestivalen 2018

Felicia Olsson in Melodifestivalen 2018

We would like to raise awareness for one of our amazing employees, Ms.Olsson, as she is called in school, one of our amazing teachers in grade 4. In her free time she has an interest that many share with her, namely music and song. This interest has now taken her to Sweden's biggest music scene, the Melodifestivalen! At the age of 18, she performed the song "Make Me No.1" in the song festival which is the lead up to the Eurovision song competition. This spring Felicia Olsson will appear with "Break that Chain" in Örnsköldsvik. We want to warmly congratulate "our" Ms. Olsson and will support her all the way!

Thoughts for Academic Year

Dear Parents/Guardians and students, 

As this academic year begins, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support as we work together to make IES Eskilstuna one of the best schools in the region. We are striving to make this school a school of which the community can be proud; a school where students’ command of English is on a respectable high level; a school enforcing a safe and orderly environment where teachers can teach and students can learn and most importantly a school that sets high academic expectations and aspirations on their students. 

We wish you a successful and fun academic year!

France 2018 - Eskilstuna-Vannes cultural exchange!

France 2018 - Eskilstuna-Vannes cultural exchange!

Once again students at IES Eskilstuna will be participating in a cultural exchange with students from Lycee Le Sage in Vannes, France. This coming April, about 20 students from France will visit Eskilstuna and Stockholm to learn about the Swedish way of life and culture. They will also have the opportunity to improve their English language skills in conversation with our IES students. In May about 20 IES students from grade 8 and grade 9 will be travelling to France where they will visit the Bretagne region as well as Paris over 9-10 days.

Our students will learn about French culture and of course develop their French speaking skills. We wish all the students the best for this wonderful opportunity to share their culture with other students.

Mid term

We are now into the final 7 weeks of the term before the winter holiday and it was absolutely wonderful to see the engagement in the learning when I was out visiting lessons during the week. We are now at the end of an intensive week of Student Choice were all students work with different levels and sorts of subjects. In the begining of the week I was at a year 7 Swedish lesson where they were intensely reading and reflecting on how you “argue in an oral speech”. I also visited a year 8 Sewing lesson where they were analyzing the different projects which they had created. At the year 7 math lessons, there was a introduction in Seesaw Metric Project. It was terrific to see the students all working at different levels within the same classroom. Year 4 English were working with their workbooks and it was impressive how far they have come with their language skills. The same with year 5. I can absolutely say that the working environment was calm, focused and engaged! Well done everyone!
