Antagning till åk 4 / Admissions to year 4 - update on progress: February 11th 2020

Update 11th of February 2020:

We have now filled almost all our 150 places for the year 4's starting in August 2020. In our student queue we got up until those that applied before the end of February 2014.

IF there are any places coming up -  as usual we will continue as we find out to contact the next in line. This if someone changes their mind at some point. This can of course happen at any point during the spring, summer or even after the school has started - IF we have a place, the next in line will be contacted. 

IF you have your child in our queue and by Easter break 2021 still haven't been contacted - but is still interested in a place, you can contact us to move your child up to the queue for year 5 August 2021 queue, your application date stays the same. 

Regards,

IES Nacka 

 

Update 28th of January 2020:

We have now started looking at the next few in line to fill our last places for the year 4's starting August 2020. We contact people via email first and phone second as usual, and always strictly by the order in the queue. We will update again later next week about the progress.

We appriciate your patience.

Kind Regards,

IES Nacka

End of November we had our Workshop for the first 180 students in the student queue. We have now 120 confirmed students so far that will start year 4 in August.

The last invited have until January 8th 2020 to reply, and after this we will continue the process until we have filled our 150 places.

Update November 28th 2019:

Vi har nu börjat processen för antagning inför åk 4 höstterminen 2020.

Vi kommer att kontakta de som står först i kö ( de som stått längst) för att se hur många av de första 180 barnen som är intresserade, i turordning.

Notera att vi har över 1200 barn i kö till HT-20 åk 4 och endast 150 platser.

Vi tillämpar syskonförtur som innebär förtur om man har barn på samma skola samtidigt. 

De första vi kontaktat har stått i kö sedan mitten av  januari 2014. Får vi ett negativt svar så fortsätter vi med att kontakta nästa på tur osv.

Vi kommer att uppdatera er vidare via denna sida regelbundet med hur långt i vår kö vi kommit. 

Tack för ert tålamod.

We have now started the admission process for the year 4 students of fall term 2020. We will contact the first (those with the longest application date) to see how many of the first 180 students that are still intersted, in turn. 

Note that we have more than 1200+ children in the queue for year 4 of the autumn term 2020 and only 150 places.  We apply sibling advantage meaning that you will have an advantage in the queue if you have siblings in the school at the same time. 

Those contacted in the first batch have been in our student queue since before the middle of January 2014. If we get a negative reply, we will continue contacting the next in turn and so on. 

We will keep updating you via this site regularly on how far in the queue we are. 

Thank you for your patience.

Piñata making at IES Nacka!

There is more to learning a language than just studying vocabulary and grammar. Learning the culture where the language is spoken makes the process more meaningful and in addition, making something creative with your hands is memorable and fun! Before we reached the end of the 2019-2020 term, our year 7 students learned about the history of piñatas and created their own in their Spanish class.

One of the theories is that piñatas have originated in China (where paper comes from). Marco Polo is believed to have passed this custom on to Europe in the 14th Century. When he brought it to Europe, he used the Italian word “pignatta” meaning "cooking pot". When the Spanish missionaries arrived in America, the spelling was adapted to Spanish. However, Mayans already had a very similar tradition to celebrate the birthday of the Aztec god of war with a colorful clay pot filled with little treasures that people would strike with a stick. Therefore, the combination of the Chinese and Mayan traditions led to what the piñata is today. 

Our piñatas were made using mostly recycled materials, such as cardboard boxes, newspapers, and coloured paper. 


In total, the whole process took students between two and three lessons, and the models chosen had different levels of difficulty.

     .   

Our students enjoyed the making and the breaking of piñatas too!

 

From the Principal

End of term letter from the Principal, June 2020

Dear students, parents and staff,

 

As we start the summer holidays and reflect on the school year that has been, I want to take the time to say thank you for all of your dedication and grit during the last twelve months.  The 2020 winter/spring term has been truly challenging and memorable.  Your positive attitude as well as willingness to support each other has been an inspiration to have been a part of.  

 

IESN has continued to achieve academically and socially.  The graduating year level will leave with the best overall achievement levels in the history of IES Nacka.  The staff and students have cooperated, collaborated, and pushed each other to accomplish amazing things.  We are all extremely proud of them.

 

The student council, after school programs / clubs, dedicated staff, student care team and administration have created a safe and caring environment for all the students and staff to work in every day.  So much time, energy and perseverance are involved in ensuring that IES Nacka is a place where everyone can belong.  

 

We continue the process of  renovating the entire school and look forward to August and the opening of the new kitchen, lunchroom and student area on floor 10.  The renovation on floors 6, 7 and 8 will continue in the autumn term with the goal of completion by January 2021.  

We at IES Nacka wish you a safe summer of 2020.  We are looking forward to welcome you back on the 17th of August 2020!

Best Regards,

Donald Christian

Principal IES Nacka
