Principal's Blog - Winter Break

Principal's Blog - Winter Break

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.

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 They discovered that soap had been used for 5000 years and was originally made using animal fat and ash from a fire.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.

Debate Club

Debate Club

Idag hade några av våra studenter en het debatt om att bära skoluniform eller inte. De som var för skoluniform menade att med uniform visar man stolthet över sin skola. De som argumenterade mot tyckte att man kan visa stolthet genom att få goda betyg och att berätta om skolan för andra.
