Mentor Talks #4

By now, most of our students have had their mentor talk meeting with their mentor and parent or guardian or at least are close to having them completed! 

So that means the initial nervousness from both the student and staff is over with and we can all relax and focus on preparing for the start of the new academic year! 

We hope the meetings went well for both the students with their parents or guardian and the staff. This is not always the easiest or most comfortable of meetings especially if you are new to joining IES Jönköping as a new member of staff or a new student but we certainly hope that you were made to feel welcome and at ease after the initial introduction.

We would like to say a big thank you to the staff and parents for making the arrangements to meet and also a thank you to our students who made the effort to attend and consciously make an effort to kick start their year ahead at IES Jönköping!

We hope you enjoy the weekend and what is left of the summer vacation and we look forward to welcoming you back in Week 34 to start the school year!

Preparations Under Way #3

Preparations Under Way #3

New Year, New You, New Us!

Preparations for a new year, a new start (for some of our staff and students) have been ongoing to ensure everything is organised and ready for Week 34 when we kick start the new academic year 2018-2019!

Come and take a look at how busy our maintenance, administration and all staff in general have been the past few weeks to make sure everything runs smoothly and as seamlessly as possible!

New books, new folders, new stationery and for some classes new furniture but most certainly new coat of paint to literally help make a fresh clean start to the year ahead!

We hope our students and parents will have the opportunity to meet and greet with our new team in the year ahead.

Summer Fritids #100

IES Fritids units have had a busy summer spending this very hot summer weather with the Fritids units at Prolympia School.

They have had their fair share of fun activities to ensure they can make the most of their summer break.

So, come take a look at the photo collages the staff have displayed in the corridors of the 1st floor Fritids (opposite Rainbow unit) to see for yourself all the fun they have been having the past few weeks during the summer Fritids.
