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.”
The sense of excitement for the coming summer holidays is evident throughout the school. This final week of term brings the last bits of work being handed in and the joy of spending one last Year Level day with everyone. The entire school is abuzz with students and staff preparing for our End of Year Ceremony. We are all so excited to cheer for the accomplishments of students in every Year Level.
It is an exciting time at IES Nacka. Sports days, Year Level days, class outings, academic projects being created, Arts and Crafts placing displays throughout the school. The Music department is preparing for the end of year celebration and graduation for the Year Level 9 students. IES Nacka is looking forward to starting a new tradition by holding this event at Göta Lejon.
With each passing day we see the joy and enthusiasm of the students and staff at IES Nacka. The promise of Spring and the arrival of a warming sun has been welcomed and so helpful in striving after our goals. I am so proud to be witness to the progress of all our students. Their ability to adjust and thrive in this learning environment is an honor to be a part of.
Dear parents, students and staff,
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.
Time has been rushing by while we have all been so busy with discovering, sharing and learning these many weeks that it is important to highlight some of the major happenings at IES Nacka.
