Great Results!

Great Results!

IES now have 37 schools across Sweden and our combined results clearly show that our ethos pays off. IES Uppsala has been awarded an internal IES award for strong grade integrity, meaning that we have a strong correlation between national test results in grade 9 and final grades, something we are very proud off. The teachers collaborate closely, co-planning and assessing to ensure we interpret the curriculum in the same way, giving coherent, strong and fair results.

With that I Wish you a peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Holocaust Survivor

Holocaust Survivor

Holocaust survivor, Livia Fränkel, visited our school on United Nations Day, 24th of October. She addressed our grade 9 students and gave a detailed historical account of events, intertwined with her own story of growing up in Transylvania and how eventually the war also reached them. This was a much appreciated lecture, and of great importance. We were most grateful to have her come to our school.

Science in Focus!

Science in Focus!

Science is the study of the world around us and as such we try to take the students out on field trips or bring expert speakers in to the school. So far this year the year 4 have been following “Gulastigen”, looking at this habitat and its population, 30 of our year 7 have been for a day at Tekniska Museet in Stockholm and last week the year 9 have been to Uppsalas Evolutionary Museum as part of their Biology course. This week year 5 go to Naturskolan to study “allemansrätten” and the year 4 will be going to BIotopia to continue their work with habitats. Let's hear it for Science!

Säkra Varje Unge

Säkra Varje Unge

Säkra varje unge - a non-profit organisation working against internet grooming and sexual abuse of children held a lecture for our grade 5 students and grades 4-6 parents last week. They talked about how various aps are used on the internet today by our youth and how unknown adults can potentially quite easliy get in contact with our children. An open dialogue between parents and children was promoted so that children always feel supported if something inappropriate happens to them on the web. A much appreciated presentation by both students and adults.
