Spring Fair

Spring Fair

Yet again we had fantastic weather for our Spring Fair on the 16/5. It was a successful event with many visitors and lots of tasteful items on sale! Not to mention all the interesting items at the  “loppis” stands. This year saw the introduction of the Aesthetics Exhibition in the middle school gym hall. Work from the different subjects were on display - it was fantastic to see all the different projects that the students had been working on.

Police visit

Police visit

As part of a new initiative at local middle and high schools throughout Uppsala to prevent and discourage the use and sale of drugs, police with dogs visited our school on Thursday. The police were able to search the school quickly and let us know that no drugs were found. They spoke with students, and ended the visit by having lunch with students in the lunch hall.

Following their positive experience in our school they complimented our students on how calm and polite they were. The school works very closely with the police and we are positive to this initiative as it will contribute to keeping our school and students safe. This cooperation will, of course, be continued.

Founders visit

Founders visit

On the 13 of March we welcomed Ms Bergström and Dr Bergström to the school. They walked around the school talking to students who were intrigued to meet the IES founder. Ms Bergström also met the PTA to thanks them for the Teacher Appreciation Days. It was an inspiring visit and we hope to welcome them back again soon.
