During week 13 IEGS focused on promoting physical activity as part of our proactive work in raising awareness for health and wellbeing for all ages. Inline with the Sustainable Development Goal #3 Health, IEGS aims to spread awareness, create opportunities to practice what we preach, and engage in conversations with students and staff on different health topics.
For me this was the most active I have been in a week in probably months. Since I help to organise the activities I also try to participate in as many as I possibly can to support the staff and students who engage in them.
In March, we had our new inter-house competition at IEGS: the Citizen Scientist competition! As part of IEGS's involvement in the Big Data against Childhood Obesity (BigO) Project we asked students to voluntarily contribute their data to this big data project in order to help public policy makers in their fight against adolescent obesity in Europe. Students were given information on the problem of adolescent obesity and asked to contribute on a voluntary basis to the efforts of researchers in Sweden, Greece, the Netherlands, Ireland, and Spain by downloading the myBigO app. By using the
We are excited to see the designs created by both the National Program and the IB Visual Art students at the IEGS Third Year Art Exhibition 2019.
Our students have worked on several art forms in different mediums such as collage, oil paint and acrylic, sculpture, photograph and more. They have worked from strange surreal visions, architecture, explorations of media and identity to memories and nostalgia. All students are encouraged to explore a wide variety of themes and topics.
Some of these works are the result of two years of dedication and hard work on bringing the best of their
It’s time to recruit new drama students to the Aesthetics programme. Ninth graders who have applied, have received an invitation to the Audition day the 21st of March. The potential new students will come prepared with a monologue to perform, and they will also get the chance to meet current drama students and do some drama exercises. The workshop gives the students the opportunity to get to know the school and the ways of working in the department. We are positive they are going to have fun and like what they see of our school.
We can’t wait to meet next year’s new drama students!
January and February have been busy months for the Aesthetics Department. The whole school was involved in the Winter Sports Day, and this was sandwiched between the Art exhibition and 3rd Year Drama production.
These events really showcased the passion and enthusiasm within our school. A big thank you to all students and staff that have contributed in making those events a success, as well as those who supported it.
Wishing everyone in the IEGS family a great Winter Sports break. There will probably be more sun than snow in Stockholm, so enjoy the time off.
