This week we have been informed that our National Test topic in Science will be Physics. Mrs Hales, our HoD, and Mr Hurdsfield, our Year 9 teacher, are busily preparing our students for the practical part of the test during Week 13 and then the theoretical parts on Wednesday of Week 15.
The year 2018 has started well and we are in full swing again.
Students are settling into the routines and our wonderful staff are working hard everyday to deliver the best possible education. I'm proud to walk around our school, listening to students and teachers interact with one another in classrooms and corridors
National Tests are being completed successfully, students have been visiting Expectrum here in Västerås, year 4 completed Schack4an with an incredible result and PTA is working together with our Student Council to organise this years Spring Festival. We are also looking forward to our exchange student visitors from Spain and are planning a program for them that shows the best of Sweden and Västerås. Winter break is almost upon us and then after this are the few short weeks to graduation. Meanwhile and as always we all continues to strive to make our school the best it can possibly be.
Let me just take this opportunity to thank everyone for all their hard work and dedication to making IESV such a proud place to work.
As the end of one year closes and a new one begins it's always a great time to reflect back on how the year has gone and how we can be moving into the future. You have survived challenges and succeeded when you thought it was impossible. You have worked hard and given it your absolute best. You have shown courage and determination to improve but most of all you have the chance to surprise yourself and others just how much you are able to achieve, to be proud of yourself! Remember, our mistakes are often just lessons designed to help shape the course of this amazing journey of life and give us the chance to reach even further than even we thought possible. As we look forward into our futures I ask you to paint it bright, bold and vivid. Live in the now but plan for amazing tomorrow's.
Enjoy the winter break spend time with your friends and family share food, laughter and love and return in the New Year ready to continue our amazing time together.
Wishing you all the best from myself and all the staff at IES Västerås.
Ms Nyborg - Proud Principal of IES Västerås
It's autumn and winter is quickly approaching again and I want to take this time to ask both students and parents to be extra careful when traveling from and to school. Reflective bands and clothing can really help and I ask that drivers to please slow down when dropping off and collecting students, thank you.
Recently we had the great talent show performed by very talented students and special cultural dishes made by our kitchen in collaboration with our teachers from around the world. All with great results, so I want to thank everyone who has been involved in these activities.
IES Västerås continues to be a place I as a principal am extremely proud to be a part of and thank everyone for their hardwork and dedication to making this school amazing. Now we are looking forward to our Open House and for the start of this academic year’s National Tests coming up.
Things are back in full swing again here at IESV.
The term has started well with a very successful BBQ and Meet n Greet. Classes are settling into their usual routines and lots of students are reporting that they are happy with the re-mixing of classes and they have had chance to make some new friends. Teachers as well as other members of staff have noticed how calm the corridors are and they hope they can continue this way.
Autumn is hectic time of the year with an student exchange program to Spain and different cultural and sport event as well as our annual Open house for all students and parents.
I myself is looking forward to the weeks ahead and know with such a great team behind me we can make a real difference to all the lives of our students here at IES Västerås.
