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!

On Friday September 15th 2017, IES Eskilstuna students in Primary School (grade 1-3) and Junior School (grade 4 and 5) were participating in the annual event Skoljoggen, an incentive by Svenska Skolidrottsförbundet to promote exercise and raise awareness/funds for a very worthy charity, SOS Barnbyar (for more information or to make a donation please visit http://www.sos-barnbyar.se). Our students could choose whether to run, jog or walk. Primary School had their activity in Kronskogen and the students at Junior School were in Vilsta, running the 2.5 km track. We were very lucky about the nice weather and all students were eager to do their best! Well done!
Year groups 6, 7, 8 and 9 from Internationella Engelska Skolan i Eskilstuna participated with great enthusiasm in Skoljoggen on September 13th in Vilsta. Students could choose to run, jog or walk a distance of 5 km.
The school jog is organized by the Skolidrottsförbundet and is carried out once a year. We are proud of the great fighting spirit that our students showed! Great work!
Students from 9G at IES Eskilstuna have created and submitted a poster for Nobel Museum's Musikjakten competition. Hundreds of students across Sweden participated by creating music using a digital music engine based on principles of evolution. Sounds were created by pairing and mutating the "genetic code" of other sounds through multiple generations to create new and unique sounds. Students then analysed data collected about both the sounds created and information about the users' musical tastes and habits to see if any trends could be seen.
In the final step, the students created a poster describing the research and their results, including a link to one of the new sounds created.
Our students' poster is one of the 25 finalists in the competition. Now it's time for the public to vote!
