End of school year 2019

From the Principal

Dear students, parents and staff,

The end of the school year is fast approaching and I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for your wonderful effort and support for Internationella Engelska Skolan Nacka.  As always, we continue to strive in our academic development and in our desire to improve our professional and personal relationships.

Professionally, IES Nacka is cooperating with Nacka municipality with (SSPF) Skola Socialtjänst Polis Fritidsverksamhet, Barn och Ungdoms focus as well as Nacka teacher training (VFU) program.  We have brought in the fire department to train all students on fire safety and improved the security of the school building. The cooperation between the school and parents is continuously improving.  Activities to raise money with Giving People, trips to amusement parks, museums, as well as organizing visits from educational institutions. The IES Nacka student council has been more active than ever before.  The improvements to the school environment and efforts in the food council have been greatly appreciated. Personally, our staff and students have displayed an openness, kindness and willingness to include others that is lovely to witness and be a part of.  The school leadership are truly thankful for all the participation of our families, community, staff and students at IES Nacka.

Academically the development continues at our school with brilliant national test results and individual achievement.  The Year Level 9 students have achieved the highest grade point average in the schools history and eight students have earned 340 points.  We have diversified our learning with the creation of Project week. Twenty-one different multi-year level (4-7) teams created amazing projects during week twelve, with a final day of displaying their work for parents to come and take part in.  The creativity and resourcefulness was great to see. Lastly, we want to mention the dedication of our school assistants in conducting inspiring competitions, craft projects, and joyful events for junior club as well as driving the reading initiative for Year Levels 4-6. It has been a brilliant success and we are encouraged by so many avid readers using the library facilities during the school year.

We at IES Nacka wish you a relaxing and peaceful summer of 2019.  Please remember the first day of school for 2019-20 will be Thursday the 15th of August.

Best regards,

Donald Christian
