Over 700 Visitors to Open House
Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet opened it's doors to prospective 9th grades last week on Wednesday November 28. Despite the bad weather and flutterings of snow, over 700 people came along to see what the school has to offer.
"It was fabulous to see so many vistors," said school principal, Dr Margret Benedikz. "Our students spoke enthusiastically at Gymnasiemässan and did a lot to encourage people to come along. They did a great job."
Over 30 IEGS students stayed on to help out on Wednesday and as well as helping to show visitors around and answer questions, there were also students running bake sales on every floor.
"I was impressed by the effort they put into making the event such a success," said Communications Officer, Dr Buscall. "The students are such a credit to the school."
The IB Programme is Proving Popular
Once again the IB Programme proved to be immensely popular. Since its introduction last year more and more students are enquiring about this highly regarded international programme that prepares students for university both here in Sweden and abroad.
"But that's not to say the national Swedish programmes aren't a good option for students wishing to study abroad," said Dr Benedikz. "Many of our students have studied abroad after completing our other programmes.
Open House January 30, 2013
There's plenty of chance to visit Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet in January ahead of the application deadline for gymnasie. We'll be opening our doors to 9th graders on January 30, 2013 and hope to see you then.
