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!

What an exciting month, the month of November that is now coming to an end. Two amazing Open House!

The 5th November we had the pleasure to receive 750 visitors at Senior School and on the 19th November 800 visitors at Primary/Junior School.

The guests took part of our education, exhibit of students' work, information from our Student Guidance Councillor. Our Health Team were present and gave information on how the student health care works. Even the Student Council and our anti-bullying team gave information to our guests. We also had the opportunity to listen to our amazingly talented students singing and playing instruments. Students from Year Nine offered their fantastic baking goods to the delights of our guests.

Two evenings that showed how much we have to be proud of.

Now we are in the middle of the oral National Tests for Year 6 and 9. The month of December is awaiting with one last effort from students and teachers. After this we have Lucia to brighten us up!

Now spring has truly arrived

Now spring has truly arrived, with greenery and spring flowers around us and the sun shining from a clear blue sky. This really gives us a taste of summer, the upcoming summer holidays and graduation.

I hope you all can use spring’s energy to cope with the last part of the term. We have a busy period ahead of us, both academically and in other areas.

Students in grade nine are now in top gear to improve their results. National tests in Mathematics are awaiting as well as National Tests in Social Science. The exam period for our IGCSE students has also begun. At the end of term, all students can also look forward to three full days of student's choice.

The Modern Language Eurovision Song Contest will take place in late April.Students are also preparing to stage a musical that will be performed at Lokomotivet on May 22nd called, “We are the world". And the choir is busy practicing for our End of Year Ceremony.

Yes, we really wish everyone good luck!

I wish you all a wonderful spring.
