Lucia 2014

From the Principal

Every year IES Jönköping arranges a traditional Swedish Lucia celebration including both new and traditional Lucia and Christmas songs.

Students in year 8 and 9 can sign up to join the Luciatåg. Our Senior School Music teacher Mr Åsman masterminds the whole show, beginning his weekly practice sessions with students months in advance.
