Visitors from Northampton

Six students studying for a BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs and Inclusion degree at the University of Northampton recently completed a visit to IES Jönköping. A very warm welcome was extended to the students and a thoughtful and interesting programme had been arranged for the visit. The students were impressed by the quiet, calm atmosphere in the school and the very good behaviour shown by the pupils. The very clear explanation of SEN processes provided a lot of food for thought and prompted detailed discussion of similarities and differences between English and Swedish systems and schools.

Innovation Camp 2017

Innovation Camp 2017

On March 2nd 2017, IES Jönköping from Year 8 participated in the in the finals of "Innovation Camp", a competition organized by Småland Turism and Ung Företagsamhet.  Students were asked to solve a problem in a realistic and inspiring way.  Groups were asked to budget and plan a fictional 4 day journey to Småland by a school class from Berlin.  To succeed in the task, students were required to demonstrate both creativity and entrepreneurial skills.

A total of three of our classes made it to the final stage at the Elmia convention center.  On stage, infront of a jury and an audience, they presented their solutions to the problem.  All of our groups had great ideas but one stood out as the winner.  With good local knowledge of the area and a well structured environmental plan, our 8A class won the prize!  In adition to the honor and a diploma, our 8A class went home with a checque for 5000 SEK!  Congratulations to all students who did a wonderful job representing IES in the competition.  An extra congratulations to 8A for a well well executed victory!
