A crisp, clear winter's day provided the perfect setting for our sports day at Björnö. Students arrived at school warmly wrapped up with sledges, skis and ice skates at the ready. Our year 9s practised ice survival skills, with 2 fearless students taking the plunge by jumping into the freezing cold lake. Fortunately, everyone did a great job of getting the brave duo out of the lake and they were all rewarded with a sauna by the shore.
Congratulations must go once again to 5a and Ms Robinson after another fine performance in Vi i Femman. Although they were narrowly defeated by Fryxellska Skolan, they made everybody here at IES Västerås proud with their great knowledge and exemplary behaviour. This result means 5a finished in the top 3 classes for the whole of Västmanland. Hopefully this great result will inspire Year 4 to build on this success next year. Well done!
It has been great to welcome all the students and staff back after a well-earned Christmas break. I was very pleased with the results from last term and am keen to see the students build on this success. We are focused on the term ahead and I have started the development process for the next academic year by interviewing quality teachers and making sure the school is a top notch learning environment.
Tomorrow at IESV we will be celebrating the 100th day of school. Several interesting things will happen so come back to see the pictures from this day.
This is also an important day for us as 5A are competing in the regional semi-final of ‘Vi i Femman’. Make sure you tune in and give them your support! They will be live on P4 and streaming on the internet from 5-6pm. Everyone here wishes them luck and I am looking forward to cheering them on from the audience.
IESV is also having an Introduction Day on the 9th of February for students who might be joining us next year. This is an excellent opportunity for them to find out more about the school and we are eager to see all the new faces.
Every day at IESV is a beautiful day!

This week the students and staff at IES Västerås have been celebrating the fantastic news that class 5A have successfully made it through to the next round of ''Vi i femman''.
This is a national general knowledge competition open to all year 5 classes in Sweden. 5A's victory means that they will now compete on Sveriges Radio against 3 other year 5 classes from Västmanland for a chance to appear on national television.
We are delighted with this achievement and everyone is very proud of 5A & Ms Robinson. Make sure you tune in and give them your support during the next round of the competition!
