A few words from the Principal.
As the autumn term comes to an end I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their dedication and commitment to excellence. We have been challenged by adversity (the flooding of 1100 sq. meters of the building) and shown that by cooperating and being flexible we can overcome any obstacle. The Year Level 9 students (4 out of 5 classes displaced from floor 6) have been wonderful and deserve all our praise for going with the flow and moving around the building for a majority of this term.
Dear students and parents,
I would like to welcome all returning students and parents to a new Autumn term at IES Nacka. A special welcome to all our new students and parents that have chosen IES Nacka for their children.
The school started with a Mentor day where students and mentors had an entire school day to get to know each other and to also discuss the school rules and the Equality Plan, "Likabehandlingsplan".
Continuing on the Friday we had our first Year Level Day where each year level had fun and inspiring acitivities together throughout the day.
Dear students, parents and staff,
With great pride and joy we are working our way to the close of the 2012-13 school year. The growth of the school, from 760 to 870 students has been a grand success. Each and every student, staff and parent has been the key to the progression of our school. The dedication to excellence and drive to reach our potential is evident in so many of the accomplishments during the school year.
After a hectic half term we can all look forward to a well deserved break.
The last couple of weeks have been intense, with national tests, year level days, and S-P-T conferences.
Year 9 students had an exciting year level day meeting a choire with young students from Minnesota. Read more about their day under News.
We have all kept our fingers crossed and cheered for our team in Year 8 in the finals of the IES Social Science competition. After a very close final, IES Nacka came in second. The entire school is very proud of you!
The holiday season is upon us and we are all enjoying the festive spirit, food and of course, the snow. It is wonderful walking around the school and seeing all the beautiful decorations in classrooms and open areas.
As always we are so proud of how industrious and dedicated the students and staff are in creating an amazing school. Whether it is group projects, practical subject assignments or individual assessments everyone is busy putting forth their best effort, up to the last day.
It is rewarding to see how our older students encourage the younger when working across year levels. In Swedish, the Year 8s have presented their work about Minority languages to the sixth year, and the Year 7s have been reading fairy tales to the year 4 students.
Autumn term is well underway with projects, homework and assessments. We have already had our first Year Level Day, a sunny day in August. Check out the slideshow to see all the exciting team building activities that were happening.
Our P.E. teachers have had an extra busy period with swimming for all classes and also preparing for the first Sports Day of this school year, orienteering at Järla, with a barbecue lunch for all students.
Dear students and parents,
The second very successful year at IES Nacka has come to a close.
In November I wrote;
“When I walk around the school, attend classes, check out the student portal, or simply enjoy a conversation in the hallways I am so excited to be leading this school. The kindness, consideration and dedication to each other is evident throughout the building.”
