Welcome from the Principal
Welcome all to another fantastic school year at Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede. I trust that everyone is well rested after the fantastic Summer break and ready for all that the school year 2016/2017 has to bring.
At school we have been busy throughout the break with all manner of building renovations and improvements. Most significant among these has been the total renovation of our Auditorium with new carpet, upholstery and seat frames/desks. There has also been extensive painting both inside the building and out giving our school that essential bright and cared for look.
Recent weeks have seen our staff very busy preparing for the impending student school start, including all manner of seminars, an all IES new staff day here at Enskede with 450 participants and a very successful IESE kickoff at a Japanese Spa. I am confident that our staff, both new and experienced, are well prepared for an outstanding school year.
I am also very pleased with how we have started the new school year during this first week. Our students have made a great start and been repeatedly praised by staff for being so positive and focussed. I am sure we are going to have a great school year with our students reaching the maximum of their potential in a truly bilingual environment.
End of Year - Welcome to the Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede
With only a few short weeks left of this academic year our school is now at full speed in all areas. There is so much that needs to fit into the last part of the Spring term that I sometimes wonder how we, each year, manage to get everything to fit. Students and staff are very busy with national tests, IGCSE examinations, end of term assessments, grading, reporting, academic competitions, sports days, class trips, house trips, graduation ceremonies, the prom, and much more.
With the recent great weather all at school begin to see the Summer holidays in the not too distant future. For our year 9 students, of course, there is the realisation that their amazing 6 year journey toward academic excellence and bilingualism with us here at IES Enskede is soon to be completed. Our year 9 students have now traveled that journey as described by me to them in the Aula all those years ago when our year 9's were only 10.
I am sure that all at IES Enskede are fully committed to ensuring that we have an absolutely fantastic end to that which has been a truly outstanding school year.
