Building Tables (and Dreams) at Project Connect!

Building Tables (and Dreams) at Project Connect!

"Every great building once begun as a building plan.  That means, sitting in that building plan on the table is a mighty structure not yet seen.  It is the same with dreams."- Israelmore Ayivor

Project Connect, with the help of Mr. Cornelius Högkvist and Mr. Hropic, have been busy making a table for IES Nacka's Counselling Center.  This project, which was completed in 6 weeks, is one of the many opportunities students have at Project Connect to connect with each other and to provide a positive impact to our community.  If you are interested in joining Project Connect, contact Mr. Cornelius Högkvist.


A place to just be

A message written on the whiteboard from students encouraging other students in the IES Nacka Counselling Center.  School counsellors, Mr. Cornelius Högkvist and Ms. Karlström, are available during school hours to help support students.  The Counselling Center is a calm environment for students to take a break from stressors and find some time to "just be". 


The Convention of the Rights of Children

Thirty years ago, world leaders made a historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood. It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world. But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood; too many childhoods are cut short. It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to making sure every child has every right. Sweden has taken one step by now making it into a law by January 1, 2020.


Ms. Poletti, Social Science Teacher at IES Nacka has put up two exhibitions of The Convention of the Rights of Children in the school in Swedish and materials for classroom activity was sent in both English and Swedish.
