8C English project

8C English project

8C have produced some great film posters on the book they have finished studying in English. Their task was to create a realistic film poster for an imaginary film of the novel (as there is no existing film for this book). They rose to the task, creating some excellent posters which would not look out of place in the corridors of Filmstaden!

Health & Movement class

Health & Movement class

 

”Health and Movement” classes, which are offered once a week to Year Levels 4-8, offer a time for students to focus on their general well being.  Class topics range from yoga, eating habits, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, growth mindset and dance...(as you can see some YL6 students are enjoying with Mr. Högkvist!)

World Book Week - IES Library Project

In the occasion of World Book Day, the school library hosted a World Book Week between the 23rd and the 27th of April. The event featured new activities everyday to promote the enjoyment of reading.

     

Students could try out different forms of poetry (Blackout poetry and collage) and test their Harry Potter knowledge with a quiz on the popular book series.

They then had the chance to get inspiration for their next reads and recommend books they liked to fellow students.

Year 4 and 5 also got to take part to a book-themed Scavenger Hunt.

        

The lucky winners of the quiz and the Scavenger Hunt received a Akademibokhandeln giftcard.

 

    

Project connect supports "Day of Silence"

Project connect supports

Project Connect is an after school club that supports and recognises individuals of the LGBTQ+ community and their allies. 

Project Connect meets twice a week after school.

A regular meeting could range from discussing LGBTQ topics, creating posters to bring awareness to LGBTQ issues, crafting, dancing, and sometimes planning events! 

On April 27th, Project Connect is organising IESN's participation in the worldwide movement - the Day of Silence. On this day, students will take a pledge of silence to raise awareness for the discrimination and harassment that LGBTQ+ youth too often experience.  

 

20180522: Added to this post - We had 472 students sign up for the event which was awesome to see such support and enthusiasm for the event. As far as feedback, we noticed a lot of individuals who weren't signed up were discussing the event throughout the day and the event itself sparked a lot of conversation regarding LGBTQ+. This was the primary goal of the event, to raise awareness. Our hope is that we use this day of awareness to now break the silence that LGBTQ+ individuals face, and speak out when we see individuals being bullied or harassed. Not only here at school, but in the community and worldwide.
