It’s Friday and you made it through the first week of lessons, give yourself a pat on the back! It’s been the beginning a new chapter in your life journey for many of you.

I hope that during this first week you have taken it all in and been open to all that is new around

For many, the new year brings much promise for new opportunities to learn, improve, be inspired, take risks and be open to change.

On Saturday, Internationella Engelska Skolan celebrated its 25th anniversary of providing quality education to students in Sweden.

Warm, sunny, long days. Hints of summer smells like coconut oil, pineapple, mints and strawberries. The sound of flip flops and gulls. There is no doubt about it, but summer time is here! And with that, the academic year of 2017/18 is over for us here at IEGS. I wish to thank our students and super hero like staff team of teachers and administrators for making this another memorable academic year. Your commitment, dedication and hard work is what makes all the ideas in school, small or large, come to life and be such a success. Thank you once again for making the year a great one!

Well done! To all our IEGS graduates, I wish you good luck and strength for
