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.

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.
