A few words from the Principal.

Mr. Donald Christian Principal at IES Nacka

Start of an exciting Spring term


It is great to be back into the swing of things in a new year.  The snow is brightening the days and we have many events to look forward to.  
The Year Level 9 Winter Ball, Art projects, parent mingle evening, career/education visits by volunteering parents, and many more exciting activities.
We have made great progress on the reconstruction of floor 6 after the water leak we had in September and we look forward to gaining more access in the near future.
We are, as always very proud of our students' academic levels and their enthusiasm for learning.
Mr. Parrish, our Head of English, has just received the provisional grades for last term's IGCSE English as a second Language results.  
IESN had a record number of students sitting the exam this year- 53.
There was a strong batch of results including 3A*s (*=stars), 9 As and 14 Bs. The results would have been even better if all students had been able to complete the full exam. Unfortunately students can't be awarded a grade if they do not sit all parts of the exam.
Overall, we are very proud of all the students who challenged themselves to sit an international examination at a higher level to the National Tests.
The staff is also dedicated to offering the students activities after school hours in our different clubs. Our Junior Club for the younger students have different activities every week, and the older students can choose from a range of after school clubs like Board games, Chess, Land hockey, Choir etc. This term three different Drama Clubs have started, with different groups for different year levels. Together with Skapande skola some of our Year 4-5 students are rehearsing for their show "Heroes and Villains" which will be performed in late April.


Happy holidays!

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.  

Welcome to the Fourth School Year Start at IES Nacka

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.

Closing Yet another Successful Year at IES Nacka

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.

IES Nacka Runner-up in IES Social Science Competition

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!

Dedicated in Creating an Amazing School!

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.

Working Across Year Levels

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 Fair New Event at IES Nacka!

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.

IES Nacka End of Year Ceremony at Göta Lejon

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.”
