It Will Soon Be Spring

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome back to school after what I trust was for you was an enjoyable and relaxing Easter break.

Non teaching staff have once again been very busy during the break, renovating and improving our facilities. This time around we have focused on our middle school student room; with new style integrated tables and seating, a new smart TV in the quiet games area, a new reception desk in the pool table area and new oak flooring where needed. Our Junior School area has been painted in key areas in order to maintain our fresh and bright atmosphere. We have this Spring especially ourselves prioritised the clearing of grit and  gravel from our playground and walkways. We are also in this area, as with our ongoing painting of our school interior, not prepared to wait until the communal Landlord Sisab gets round to making our school area clean and fit for purpose.

We now look forward to the final 8 or so weeks of school and with everything that this entails. I am convinced everyone will do their utmost to ensure we together have a fantastic end to that which has thus far been an outstanding school year.

It will soon be Spring!

Again welcome back!

Welcome Back!

Dear Stakeholders,

Welcome back to IES Enskede after what I am sure was for you a fantastic holiday of fun and relaxation.

I am sure that this term will be every bit as positive and productive as last with our students and staff working hard together to see to it that everyone reaches the maximum of their potential.

Teaching staff returned to school today Monday and have been busy with in service training and getting ready for the return of our students tomorrow . Non teaching staff have also once again been busy around the school over the holidays with various building improvement projects, including the installation of two new high quality pool tables in the Junior School student room. I am sure our Junior School students will be very happy with this development.

Again Welcome Back,

Robert Clark

Welcome Back!

Dear Stakeholders,


A sincere welcome to the International English School Enskede to all who are new and a warm welcome back to existing students and parents.


I hope and trust that you have had a fantastic Summer and that you are well rested, looking forward to a fantastic successful school year.


Non teaching staff have been hard at work all Summer improving the school building. We have created a new school entrance reception area by F1, we have painted multiple stairwells, classrooms, toilets, doors and door frames, corridor plant boxes and much more. Lighting has also been changed in Middle school stairwells.


We have new chromebooks for staff and students throughout the school and new trolleys specially designed to carry a full class set of chromebooks. I am sure that these important resources will be put to very good use in coming years. A number of classroom projectors and screens have also been replaced as part of our ongoing process of improvement.


Teaching staff have been very busy last week and this, getting ready to receive students on Monday 21st August. I am confident that we will all have a fantastic school year and look forward to, together, once again embarking on our journey toward academic excellence and bilingualism.

 

Kindest Regards,

Robert Clark

Orienteering Success for IES Student

Orienteering Success for IES Student

A 31 minute run in Dalecarlia saw an IES student take first prize at the Swedish School Championships in Orienteering.

Fredrik Glännefors, from class 8E at Internationella Engelska Skolan Enskede, was one of around 20 students who took part in the competition, near Vansbro, in western Dalecarlia.

He recorded a time of 31 minutes and six seconds over a course of 4.7km in the H14 Skol-SM.

He said: “It was a good race. It was pretty hard orienteering, but I completed the course with no mistakes. It was tough terrain to run and there was a lot of hill climbing.

"I had no clue how well I would do, but it felt good when I was running. When I came in at the finish I had some thought of winning."

Fredrik was one of the first to run the course and then needed to wait to see how the other competitors managed.  In the end he shared the first prize as another young man, from nearby Borlänge, came in with the exact same time - 31:06.

Fredrik said: “It’s a waiting game, I was with my friends, they ran in another class so I could talk to them too.

"I heard that there is a control in the forest where you can hear what time the other runners have, and I heard that it was very close. I thought I had beaten the other person by one second but when the result was announced we had the same time. I was happy for him that he had done so well too."

Fredrik has enjoyed the sport since he was five-years-old and feels like the mental and physical aspects of the sport are equally important.

He said: "It’s a balance, if you run too fast then you make mistakes, but you also have to have a good pace. You can lose a minute with a mistake, and five minutes with a big mistake.

“I have always loved orienteering. I have some high goals for myself in the future, I want to be the best and run in the world championships.”

Mr Robert Clark, Principal of Internationella Engelska Skolan congratulated the year eight student on his success.  He said: "I am of course very proud of Fredrik`s achievement and am a firm believer in the importance of physical activity as one prerequisite of a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle."
