Spring Festival Fun

Spring Festival Fun

Last week we had our third annual Spring Festival here at IESV! We had a great turnout of students, staff, parents, siblings and other family members.

Our students planned many different activities and sold a variety of home-backed goods and drinks in order to raise money for class activities and trips. 

Inside the building our departments were showing off student work from the year, as well as other activities, such as an escape room!

We also had visitors from our Spanish Exchange, two teachers and a group of students who helped to make and sell the delicious churros that sold out! 

We had great weather and were so happy to see our IESV community come together. The event was planned by our PTA (Parent-Teacher Association) and Student Council and is looking for more members and suggestions to improve this event for next year. Thank you to all those that participated! 

Here are some photos from the event.

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.

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.

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!
