Welcome everyone to a brand new year at IEGS! This term Matilda and I (Jonathan) will be the house captains of Pavlov, and we will do our absolute best to help the house in any way that we can. On the first Friday after the summer break we had our first house day where the second and third years got to finally meet the new first years. It was great to see so many new happy faces walking in the corridor and filling the empty classrooms.
The assembly which we had was our first as house captains and standing in front of over a hundred people is not as easy as some people make it look
Inter House Debate Reflection
Out of all the different Inter House Competitions taking place at IEGS, the debate competition is one of many trophies that the different houses fight for every year, and by far one of my personal favorites. For many it can be quite scary and stressful to go up and debate in front of an audience, but this year all four houses with teams consisting of both experienced debaters and complete novices took part with great enthusiasm!
This year, we were challenged by relevant and sometimes controversial topics, that lead to intense discussions in the preparation
The Inter House Floorball Competition this year took place over 2 days, in a round-robin that saw King and Pavlov in the final! Both teams played with great sprit and enthusiasm, but at the end of the showdown the title went to King house for a second year in a row! A big congratulations to all of those who participated!
It was an amazing evening with many laughs, and even some tears. We had an amazing range of dances and at the end of the evening everyone was very satisfied! The beloved King House won, due to their amazing energy, dance moves and just because they had so much fun that the audience were stunned in the end!
The other houses Curie, Pavlov and Russel were of course fantastic as well and each house got a standing ovation, which is great! A big theme in the competition was love, and there was
Last week we had our IHC Ensemble competition, which is one of the more anticipated events and the one that definitely requires the most practice. Each house puts together their team and chooses a song that they think will bring home the win. It takes weeks of practice, patience and persistence, but the end result is definitely worth all the hard work. This year we had King House performing “Chandelier” by Sia, Russell House performing “The Angel of Small Death” by Hozier, Curie House performing “Take Me Out” by Franz Ferdinand and Pavlov House performing “Gimme Shelter” by the Rolling Stones
As every year this years song competition has taken place. It's always a great event to both watch and be a part of as the many talents of the students here at IEGS are displayed. It's both a fun and a challenge to work together as one house, first by choosing a song and then having to coordinated everyone so sing on point and on key! It really does bring out the best in us all, giving us the chance to show our creative and fun side and at the same time bringing us all together. The dedication and enthusiasm shown by the students participating is a real joy to watch!

The floorball inter house competition is always an intense event which raises the temperature when autumn is approaching.
This year, there was an increased focus on the house aspect of the event by increasing the total number of players required for a team. After two afternoons with six very competitive matches, the King team could triumph as champions after an early “final” against Curie house.
The organizers would like to thank all competitors for keeping a good spirit and fair play throughout the matches, to all spectators for their massive support to all four house teams and for
The 6th annual cross- country run this year took place at Ursviksmotionsgård in Sundbyberg on the 4th September 2014.
