Antagning till år 4, höstterminen 2018

Inför årskurs 4, 2018, startar antagningen den 11 oktober med inbjudan via mail till den mailadress familjen registrerat. Skolan har 150 platser till årskurs 4, 2018. Vi har för närvarande över 1000 barn i kö till årskurs 4, 2018, vilket innebär att det tyvärr är många som vi inte har möjlighet att skicka inbjudan till. Barnen står självklart fortfarande kvar i vår elevkö.

I den första omgången kommer vi att ha möjlighet att skicka ut inbjudningar till familjer med barn som registrerades i vår kö före den 22 december 2011.

Vi genomför inför årskurs 4 alltid en "Workshop Day" där barnen får en möjlighet att uppleva hur det är att vara elev i vår skola. Samtidigt får vårdnadshavare information om skolan från ledningsgruppen. Det är de barn som står främst i vår kö enligt ovan som får möjligheten att komma till skolan och hälsa på. Därefter får familjerna en tid på sig att fundera över om man vill acceptera platsen eller inte. Detta betyder att platser kan komma att bli tillgängliga även senare. Skolan informerar via webbplatsen om en ny antagningsomgång tillämpas.

Platser tilldelas i datumordning enligt registrering i IES Nackas kö. Skolan tillämpar syskonförtur vilket innebär att elev som nu går på skolan och har ett syskon som vill börja får förtur även om syskonet har ett senare registreringsdatum än andra barn i kön. Erfarenheter och kunskap som skolgång i utlandet, engelska som modersmål etc ger inte förtur.

 

Vi har mycket begränsad möjlighet att svara på frågor under antagningsprocessen. Därför ber vi om ert tålamod.

Mailadressen info.nacka@engelska.se kommer att avläsas regelbundet, dock ej dagligen.

Många frågar oss om deras barns möjlighet till plats. Detta är en fråga vi inte kan besvara eftersom antagningsprocessen pågår. För att logga in till kön och uppdatera kontaktuppgifter; följ denna länk. Inloggningsuppgifter skickades till den mailadress ni angav samma dag som ni registrerade ert barn i elevkön.

IES Eurovision Song Contest

IES Eurovision Song Contest

Four of our students, Louise A (9B), Felicia E (9A), Alva W (7E), and Annie W (7B) competed in IES Eurovision, against 17 other IES schools. 

By a very small margin, these wonderful musicians earned 3rd place!! If you don't already know, the songs needed to be performed in either Spanish or French. Felicia sang Colores en el Viento (Colors of the Wind, of Pocahontas) while Louise, Alva, and Annie accompanied on the cello, viola and piano, respectively.

They represented IES Nacka, very well. We are very proud of them as our competition was tough.

Next year's competition will be in Tyresö!

From the Principal

Welcome back to school

​Dear students and parents,
 
I want to welcome all of you to the beginning of the 2017-18 school year.  
During the ​first couple of weeks of August, the Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka staff have been busy with inservice training, setting up the classrooms, and preparing the new curriculum.  
 
​Remember that the first day of school is a mentor class day, the second day is a Year Level Day and Friday is a regular class schedule day.  Over the next couple of weeks we look forward to mentor/parent evenings, SPT meetings, and class pictures​. 
 
​The staff is eager to see all of you and to start another year of amazing development and growth. 
​ See you all on Wednesday. ​
 

Best Regards,

Donald Christian

Principal

IES Wins Gold and Silver in Prestigious Maths Contest.

IES Wins Gold and Silver in Prestigious Maths Contest.

Students with a passion for maths made sure the first and second prizes in an elite national maths contest were carried home by two IES schools.

IES Nacka came first and IES Uppsala second in Pythagoras Quest, a maths contest for students up to and including grade nine.  IES Sundsvall also made it to the national final, having triumphed over competition from their region to be one of the top 16 teams in Sweden.
 
The popular annual maths competition focuses on students working together in group of three.  The competition sees students compete within their school to make the school’s team before facing off against other schools in their region (län).  The winning teams are then invited to Malmö Borgarskola to compete in the national final.

Eighth-grade student Willhelm Sigurd was part of the winning team from IES Nacka alongside ninth-graders Viktor Lundqvist and Alex Thelander.
 
He said: “We were very satisfied with what we did during the competition and we thought our score would be high enough for making us one of the top teams. We thought we had a chance to win, and we obviously hoped that was the case. When the results began to be announced and we got to know some of the scores the top teams had, we realized it was looking good for us, and that made us excited. When we got to know we were the winners, we obviously got very happy and relieved.
 
"The questions were challenging, we had to work hard with them, but that is how it is supposed to be. I think the competition was at a good difficulty level this year.”

While the team from Nacka claimed victory, their counterparts from Uppsala also performed fantastically as the team, made up of Vilgot Jansson, Lise Hanebring and David Mörtberg, managed to take the second place in the contest.

The double-victory in the contest follows an increased focus on the subject of mathematics within IES.

Ted Buzzelli, the organisation's subject facilitator for mathematics, said: "Congratulations to all three teams who took part in the final of Pythagoras Quest this year, this really is a fantastic achievement both in terms of teamwork on the competition day and the years of great preparation beforehand.

"We are always working to improve the quality of the maths tuition in our schools - that is something that benefits every student, as can be seen in the way that a far higher percentage of our students achieve top grades in the national tests for mathematics, as well as fantastic results like this.  Not everyone can go on to win a competition like this, but at IES we strive to participate and prepare as though we will.  We also want to enjoy the time we spend doing this."

Maths teachers taking part in an inspirational session

Recently maths teachers from across the organisation were brought together for an inspirational session with maths speaker Matt Parker at IES Kista.  The main focus of this event was to explore fun and exciting methods that will enable our students to more easily enjoy and learn maths.

Damian Brunker, the organisation’s head of academics said.  “We are committed to helping out teaching staff develop and grow.  Events like this lead to energised teachers and new ideas in the classroom. When teachers are at the top of their game, it is the students who benefit.  This event saw 104 teachers thoroughly inspired and this inspiration will be passed along to thousands of our students."
