Språkolympiaden 2020

Språkolympiaden 2020

One more year, IES Nacka has taken part in the nationwide competition for modern languages: Språkolypiadem. After successfully passing the first round, our students went to the Regional Final at Kungsholmens Gymnasium. Once there, they competed against other schools in Stockholm area. After a long day of hard questioning about grammar and culture our brave Year 9 managed to achieve 2nd place in Spanish, 3rd place in English and 4th place in both Swedish and French.

 

We are extremely proud of their efforts and we thank them for this achievement in the field of languages.

 

Merci! Thanks! ¡Gracias! Tack!

 

Stress Through the Lens of Neuroscience

Stress Through the Lens of Neuroscience

On Monday, January 20th the IES Nacka Counselling Center and Science Club hosted a seminar, "Stress Through the Lens of Neuroscience", for students and staff. 

The guest presenter, Alex Lerner, MD , had a clinical practice of medicine for over 25 years in Tampa, Florida.  He is an active lecturer on human behavior and contributes to ongoing research in behavioral psychology. 

The students and staff learned much about their brain functions and how it relates to stress.  

 

Pen-pals with Spain!

Pen-pals with Spain!

Year 8 students have a Spanish pen-pal in the Northern region of "La Rioja". At the very end of November, Year 8 students sent a massive box with handwritten letters and some items that are representative of Stockholm and Sweden.

They got back another box full with letters and tokens of appreciation from their Spanish counterparts! 

The aim of the project is not only to help them to improve their language skills but also give them a chance to experience a close contact with other international students of their age while they broaden their cultural knowledge about a different country and culture!

Both Swedish and Spanish students are very excited about this project and looking forward to keeping in contact with their newly acquired friends!"
