World Book Day is a yearly event, celebrated April 23rd, organised by UNESCO as a worldwide tribute to books and reading. According to UNESCO, April 23 is a symbolic day for literature since on that date 1616 both Shakespeare, Cervantes and Inca Garcilaso de la Vega died. Of course we want to celebrate books and reading in our school as well!

Since April 23rd is a Saturday this year we will celebrate on Friday with various activities in the library.

For example: 

  • Discuss books with IEGS Literature Club over fika (afternoon)

  • IEGS Literature

From all of us here at IEGS, staff and students, we want to say a big thank you to all who contributed, visited and donated during our event.

By Lydia Barsawme

En av Södermalms märkesbyggnader fyller 90 år 

Den 10:e mars kl 14:00 fyller en av Södermalms och Stockholms finaste byggnader från  funktionalismen 90 år. På det klockslaget för 90 år sedan invigdes skolbyggnaden vid Allhelgonakyrkan av kronprinsen och kronprinsessan och blev hem för Katarina Realskola som fick  flytta från sina uttjänta lokaler vid Katarina Västra Kyrkogata. 

Numera huserar Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet i byggnaden där gymnasister från hela Stockholm och med rötter från hela världen får sin utbildning bara ett stenkast från Skanstull.
