Literature Project

Literature Competition

Students will develop their English language skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking by taking part in an Individual Literature Project. These language skills will be developed in this unit using group work and a project format, giving students an opportunity to develop their planning and cooperation skills in a shared response to a classic novel they have chosen from a selected list of books available. Students will end this unit by presenting their Individual Reading projects in small groups.

Short Story Competition

Short Story Competition

This House Competition focuses on developing writing skills across Year 6-9. Students have been asked to choose one image from the Kirsty Mitchell “Wonderland” exhibition. They had to create an original story title and write a short blurb. The winners will then partake in a short story writing workshop led by our English Department at the Fotografiska Museum.

From the Principal

From the Principal

Dear Guardians,

I would like to wish you all a welcome return after Sportlov.

Mr. Clark has now retired after a long and illustrious career as Principal of IES Enskede. Mr Clark has provided an outstanding example of effective school leadership throughout his tenure at IES, training multiple Principals, that have started their own successful schools.

It has been a truly honourable experience to have been mentored by him for the past 13 years and I intend to carry his vision into the next stage at IES Enskede.

This past term the staff at Enskede have been working hard to create a positive learning experience for all students and make school an engaging place of learning.

We will continue to focus on and develop further upon our 3 main pillars that are core to our success,

A safe and orderly school environment where teachers can teach and students learn. Order, structure and safety are necessary prerequisites for learning. A school characterized by discipline and calm learning conditions also signals respect for the value of education. “Tough love” became the motto for a school which is strict in norms for behavior, but simultaneously conveys love for the students and a strong will to help each child succeed. Practicing good manners and proper behavior in a workplace combined with an appreciation of the positive results of hard work prepares students for success in adult life.

High academic expectations and aspirations. Our conviction is that every child can achieve success irrespective of social background. This ambition to support every student to realize his or her own potential applies to those requiring special support to meet standards as well as the most gifted learners.

Command of English. English has become the world's common language, “the key to the world”. Children should learn to command the English language, not just know it, at an early age. Fluency is best achieved through language immersion, instructed by native English-speaking teachers in an international atmosphere.

I’m positive, that along with the already engaging students, PTA and staff, we all can work together to create the best possible school we can be.
