Career Day

Career Day

IESV organised the second Career Day for students in Year 6-9.  This day has been created  to motivate and inspire our students to think about their future educational and professional opportunities.

 

By bringing the real world into our school our students can learn directly from a plethora of professional workers and entrepreneurs.  

 

Example of professions who visit us today was; Pediatrician, different kind of engineers, police, different kind of nurses, UF (Young Entrepreneurs), Radiologists, Plumber, Real Estate Agent, Chef… It was a fun and insightful day for all!

 

 

 

 

A Big Thanks to all who made this day happen!

Time flies! It feels like summer was just yesterday but today when I look out the window I see the first snowflakes fall gently to the ground. Even though we can see the end of the term there is still lots of things we need to do before waving goodbye to 2016.

First and foremost I would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all the fun and interesting meetings I had the pleasure to take part of during our SPT days week 43. For me communication with parents is just as important as it is with the students. It is also fun to see that so many parents have been seizing the opportunity to visit the school during their allocated times. I bump into parents in our corridors and classrooms almost every day, which is both fun and something I am a strong supporter of.

We are currently focusing on how to increase the active student influence in our school and how to allow them to be a part of the decision making in regards to their teaching, but also in activities such as sports days and other school events. Our school’s Student Council, lead by the two new presidents, are hard at work planning our Open House together with the PTA. The Open House, which takes place December 7th, welcomes all parents and siblings to come and take part of our organisation.

Further the school’s Student Health and Safety Officers (elevskyddsombud) together with the Health and Safety Officer (skyddsombud) are working on the school environment, I am eagerly awaiting more information from them in this important task. With this in mind I would like to once more praise students and teachers who during last weeks fire drill showed a prime example of how a fire drill should be done. All 750 students and staff responded promptly to the alarm and lined up quietly in their classes in shorter time than ever before - it was an impressive sight!

So it may be a hectic, but fun, November we have to look forward to!

Science Lab

Science Lab

Science lessons are an opportunity to open students eyes and expose them to situations and phenomena that are not easily explained. During this session the students explored the history of making soap. They discovered that soap had been used for 5000 years and was originally made using animal fat and ash from a fire. Later the Romans used urine and finally the celts created a soap called saipo - where the word soap comes from.

IESV students combined coconut and olive oil with sodium hydroxide to create high quality soaps. They then used natural ingredients to colour the soaps and essential oils to give them a scent. The outcome was fantastic and students were amazed at how 2 liquids can combine to make a solid

For the explosion

Nothing catches the attention of students that creating a half metre fiery explosion. During the demonstration, Mr Hurdsfield combined Calcium and Hydrochloric Acid to produce Hydrogen gas. The hydrogen was trapped in a sealed bottle. The Hydrogen was then lit causing a huge flame and bang. The students had never seen anything quite like it.
