The hustle and bustle of the first couple weeks has settled and our induction days past us. We are now officially deep into lessons, students have gotten to know their schedules and found their way around. It really is great to see so many faces walking the halls, they are excited and happy too finally be in school learning again.
Even more exciting is our Cross Country IHC happening next week, we like to start the year off with a bang. Giving students an event to get to know each other better, bond and even get in some good exercise! There's nothing better than spending a day outdoors
It's been a busy two weeks here at Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet, Södermalm. We've been working hard to get the school ready for our students and are very excited to be able to have them back in full time. Teachers and other staff members have been working, collaborating, planning and planning some more. It's also been a bit quiet over the past weeks in the building, but we know come Monday it will be full of life and energy.
We hope you are ready for another year and excited to start a new adventure! Here are some words on wisdom as you start your journey of new school year.. don

On Saturday, Internationella Engelska Skolan celebrated its 25th anniversary of providing quality education to students in Sweden. I was honoured to be amongst the 400 plus guests gathered in the Blue and Gold Halls of City Hall in Stockholm to celebrate IES and the success of our founder Ms Barbara Bergström. What an amazing person and entrepreneur. It was a magical evening of festivities. A superb dinner fit for noble laureates. Outstanding entertainment from IES alumni, staff, student choirs and performers. Not to mention our founding mother herself who bedazzled us with a performance in a

This year the Modern Languages Department here at IEGS has had the privilege of participating in two language competitions; the annual Språkolympiaden (the Olympic Games of Languages) as well as the Chinese Bridge, a Chinese language proficiency competition. Both of these competitions look, not only at the students competency in each language, but also at the cultural norms and practices of these countries.
After competing in the first round of the Språkolympiaden in January, our students qualified for the Regional Final in Spanish, French and German. In March the students in Spanish, Parnian
