Welcome back!

A warm welcome to Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet (IEGS) for the 2020/2021 school year, to both our new and returning students. I hope that you have found your summer vacation to be both enjoyable and restful.

We’ll wrap up GYAR projects, discuss logistics for graduation day, do a lottery to determine order for the utspring, and practice a bit of distanced singing outside in the sunshine.

Welcome back to school! What a strange year we left behind. In uncertain times people are looking for information to help them understand the world we live in.
