Autumn Update

As we head towards the November break,  this feels like a good time to reflect on the first couple of months of life at IES Johanneberg 2017/18. The school feels very much a hive of activity and we would like to inform you of just some of the things we are up to.  

As usual, a member of the leader group, or administration, continues to meet and greet our students at the main entrance, welcoming them each day, with a big smile and a handshake.

We continue our work with the importance of building relations and have increased our Care and Development team, improving our staff presence around the building, including the lounge room, all helping towards creating a calm and peaceful environment.  Our library is better than ever, providing a controlled learning environment. We have also added study sessions into many class schedules. This has been most appreciated by students, teachers and guardians. Our study hall schedule is also complete now and fully functional.

House activities have started and we had a successful Football tournament for each year group. The students and staff had a wonderful time, with each game being played in the right spirit. Soon we will hand out trophies! We will also have House Colour and Halloween dress-up days, an Art competition, a crotchet competition and a Chess tournament.

In week 37, students had a fantastic day hiking. Grade 9s looked after grade 7s, guiding them through the woods and even cooking lunch for them! Grade 8 fended for themselves, happy to say all students made it!

Grade 9s visited Gymnasiemässan this week and are now beginning to see the reality of next year! Many students came back to school with a new focus and motivation to succeed this year.

We now look forward to our annual regional conference, where the staff at our school get the chance to share good practice and ideas with colleagues from other IES schools. Coming up in the calendar, we also have students sitting IGCSE exams, going out on PRAO, visiting the youth clinic, sitting national test oral exams, etc.

Welcome Back!

Dear all,

As the summer holidays come to their end, I hope that you are all feeling rested and relaxed, but also charged and ready for a new challenge. We are all so excited to welcome both existing students and new students to school on August 17th. 

I am sure 2017/18 will be a fantastic year, one full of learning and fun.  Our planning and preparations have been ongoing over the summer, all to ensure a successful time here for our students. We have been working with our staff around the theme of GRIT and growth mindset. The message is that everything is possible if we believe in ourselves, can open our minds and most importantly are prepared to work hard. We must all show perseverance and determination and then we can really achieve our goals. We want our students to not be afraid to fail, but see failure as a strength, embrace it, learn from it and improve. 

Don't give up or look for the easy way out!

See you all soon!

School Inspection's Results

School Inspection's Results

 


As you may know, our school was recently inspected by Skolinspektionen and now the inspection report has been published.

It is very rare and a real achievement for a school to receive no comments, or only minor ones during an inspection. This is a sign of a very well-functioning school and means Skolinspektionen has not found anything they need to criticise. I am happy to inform you that this is what we have achieved.

Everyone invschool should be very proud for playing their part in making this school such a positive environment to study and to teach. Thank you for your daily efforts.

Yours faithfully,

Spring Term Update

Dear students and guardians,

We are now well into spring term and time is approaching fast. Right now we have sports break, giving our teachers and students a well deserved break. 

During this academic year we have seen our students grow and I have been fortunate enough to have seen and heard about many great leaps of progress among our student body due to the hard work the students and teachers are putting in. 

Spring term is a very hectic period with national tests, final grades and other important deadlines. It requires a lot of work from both staff and students. I can't wait to see what we will have accomplished when the spring term is over, and I as mentioned in the beginning - time is approaching fast.

Welcome Back

Dear all,

Welcome back to a new term and to 2017!

We can look back at a very busy and incredibly productive fall term. Our students and staff have been working as hard as ever, to ensure goals are reached and our academic progress continues. The national test orals in Swedish, English and Maths went very smoothly, we had valuable development talks, our IGCSE exams were very successful etc.

We also had many fun events, including a UN day, a number of House competitions, a Halloween dress up day, a beautiful Lucia performance, an amazing winter ball and we ended the term with Student Choice days with activities ranging from rock climbing to Javascript programming.

This term we will take on all the National tests for Y 9, we are looking forward to a winter sports day soon and, later on, the annual Spring Bazaar.

We will also have a new team, Care And Development, CAD, and they will be mainly responsible for behavior issues. The CAD co-ordinator will be Mr Ibrahim who had worked with this for many years at IES. He will work closely with a team of school hosts and student assistants to develop the environment for our students.

 

I look forward to a new and exciting term and wish you all a happy and healthy 2017!

Fall Break

Dear all,

We are now heading towards the midterm break and we have already done so much in a short space of time! I think we now all deserve some holiday time after all of this hard work!

We can look back now on a lot of success, fun school work and interesting activities.

In all subjects there have been tests, check points, presentations, assignments, deadlines as well as regular homework. I am so proud of all the ambitious and hardworking students and teachers! Students in year 9 have done the IGCSE tests in English and also there I am so proud of them.

The UN day, October 24th, with different activities in mixed groups was also a huge success.

Of course, the Houses have also been busy. We just finalized the Basketball competition and I want to congratulate House D on being the winner! Soon we will have the X-factor, the next exciting competition.

Today, the day before the break, we see wonderful sunshine and blue sky. The schoolyard with its big and colorful trees is so beautiful. And inside we have a dress up day, a fun school spirit day! The student council has decorated the school and both students and staff look really funny! 

I wish you all a wonderful break and look forward to seeing you again Nov 7th.

 

Regards,

Ms  Rothstein

Autumn Term In Full Swing

Autumn Term In Full Swing

 

Dear all,

The Autumn term is now in full swing and I am happy to report it has been a wonderful school start. We were so happy to meet many of you during our recent parent meetings. These are always a valuable chance to set things up for the year in a positive manner, as well as passing on information, meeting your child's mentor and providing a forum to raise any concerns. Grade 9 parents were given a lecture by our Careers Councillor, the focus of which was naturally on gymnasium applications and the future! 

The students are really happy with the improvements we have made to the school and this is having a positive effect on the feeling of the environment. Our corridors have now become 6 continents, with each House taking ownership of the corridor.  We will soon kick off our House calendar with a Basketball tournament and an X-Factor competition (the winner of which will represent IES Johanneberg in the annual IES eurovision competition). We have increased study areas in the school,providing valuable areas for students to sit and study. 

I am also delighted to announce that we now have a cafe, serving sandwiches and snacks, open outside of the lunch hours. Our library and student lounge are a big success too, giving areas where students can be when not in class and alleviating traffic in our corridors. 

We are excited about upcoming events. We have an in-service day soon in IES Lund, where staff will have a great opportunity to share best practice. We have sports days planned, a UN day, Halloween dress up day, IGCSE exams etc etc ..there is never a dull moment I can say...!
