PRAO (Year Levels (8 & 9)

PRAO (Year Levels (8 & 9)

During the spring term (week 12), students in year 8 & 9 will take part in the annual work placement program, PRAO (praktisk arbetslivsorientering).

The purpose of PRAO is to give students an opportunity to have real life experience in the work world.  It is a great time for them to try out different careers and gain more insight into working life.

In preparation for this experience, students attended an assembly with our career counselor to help guide them with how to secure a PRAO placement and to answer their questions.

Student's suggestion box

New year, new ideas!

Students have been coming with great suggestions of what they would like to see in the cafeteria, therefore we have now put up a new suggestion box where students can leave notes suggesting new things  that they would like to see in the cafeteria or the school.

During week 3 the cafeteria will be arranging a table tennis tournament for students. The games will be played Monday - Thursday between 15:00 - 16:00. There will be music, good games and a great chance to just meet up with friends and watch the tournament.

Happy holidays from us at IES Nacka

It has been an eventful autumn term and we are all looking forward to the holidays. Everyone has been dedicating themselves to academic and social development.  We have been incredibly busy both in different subjects and Year Level activities.

IES Nacka students continue their quest for excellence in Math and English iGCSE exams.  The Year Level 8 students are going on excursions to practice Spanish by practicing directions, going to restaurants and filming so it can be shown to the teachers.  Our Year Level 4 students have made the transition to IESN and are learning English at a frenetic pace. We are all so very proud of their tenacity and growth mindset.  The library has been in full swing with celebrating European Day of Languages, reading initiatives, as well as the “Bookmark competition”. The creative talents of our students is amazing.  

This autumn our Year Levels, with the support of our parents, have been the busiest in the school’s history.  From Year Level 4 to Year Level 9 events have been non-stop at the school. Halloween parties, Fun Friday, disco parties, ping-pong tournaments, fika parties, to career day (15 parents and alumni spent the day with Year Level 9) are just some of the things that have been going on this term.  We are really looking forward to the talent show that is taking place in January. Please look out for the information and come and support our future stars. Last but not least I want to mention the excellent work of our student council. We have been getting great ideas for lunch, playground equipment, café games and so much more. They are truly dedicated to informing the school leadership about the social and practical needs of the student body.

We at IES Nacka wish you all a joyous and peaceful holiday season.  Please remember our first day back to school will be January 8th, 2019.

Junior Club:  Claymation Video "Pingvinen och Uttern"

One of the many fun activities students do during Junior Club is clay art.  Recently, some students also learned how to make claymation videos.  Below is a claymation video,  "Pingvinen och Uttern", made by Sam S in class 4A.  Later this spring, students will have the opportunity to learn more about Claymation during "Project Week" which will be held during week 12.  During "Project Week" students in grades 4-7 will have a week to explore different topics and projects that spark their interest and creativity.  


Great job, Sam...We look forward to seeing more of your creative efforts duiring Project Week!
