PROM 2018! #88

What a beautiful evening it was for our former Year 9 students Prom night on Wednesday 13th June!

Starting off with photos and welcome drinks with the option to play poker for some friendly entertainment! Followed by, dinner served by our wonderful staff and so the night continued with food, drinks, entertainment and music!

No Prom is complete without a Prom King and Queen announcement, speeches and awards rewarded!

To end the night, off course, lots of dancing and partying and saving the last dance till as close to midnight as possible!

Watch this space to get a glimpse of how wonderfully magical the night turned out!

Barncancer Fonden Success at Spring Fair #87

Barncancer Fonden Success at Spring Fair #87

Wow! What a successful fundraiser, Skyfall Fritids unit had at the Spring Fair on Monday 11th June selling crafts from tote bags, bracelets to keyrings and magnets all made by the wonderful team and students at Skyfall to raise money for Barncancer Fonden!

They raised over phenomenal 2300 SEK!

We would like to use this opportunity to say a big thank you to all the students and the staff who worked continuously hard on making this a successful project! Also, a special thank you to all the parents and guardians who supported us and helped us raise money for such a good cause!

Spring Fair 2018 Success #86

Come rain or wind, there was no stopping us have fun and continuing with the plans as usual for our annual Spring Fair, 2018!

What a wonderful day and success it was! Our students, their parents and guardians had just as much fun as our staff did, regardless of the rain and blistering wind!

It was a great turn out of people, some exciting activities, very popular popcorn and ice cream stalls and off course the much appreciated and well needed warm dinner served by our wonderful kitchen team!

So let's wait and see who won the most challenges as individually, as a class team and as a year group! But regardless of who won, it was wonderful to see our students energised, competitively hard working to achieve the highest score yet friendly and helpful to each other, thus remembering the importance of teamwork!

Whilst our staff was just as engerised as our students, some helped to encourage and motivate them to succeed! Whilst others were responsible to warmly welcome parents and guardians who took time off work or studies to join in! Others actively ensure everything was running smoothly throughout the day!

Watch this space for photos taken by our Principal, himself, capturing all the key moments of the day and to find out exactly how much money we raised!

Skyfall & Barncancer Fonden at Spring Fair #85

As you have seen the extensive list of activities prepared for the Spring Fair on Monday 11th June at IESJ, you can see that we are all ready and geared up for the event across all units and departments in the school. However, there is one particular unit that is participating in the Spring Fair but for a slightly different purpose.

Every year, we hold the Spring Fair to ensure our students, their parents and guardians can join us in having a fun filled afternoon of activities, competitions, prizes and lots of yummy snacks and edibles! Like every year, all the money raised goes back to making our school even more fun and exciting for our students and so we invest the money raised into what their wishes and desires are for the school!

This year, is like, all previous years, where we will do exactly that, expect for Skyfall Fritids unit for Years 4, 5 and 6. As part of their ongoing project for Citizenship(*), they want to raise money to show care and support for others in their community (near or afar). Both the students at Skyfall and the staff have worked hard for the past 2-3 months in making various craft items from tote bags, bracelets, keyrings and so forth to sell at their stall at the Spring Fair (see image above of the items made).

*Citizenship is the sixth pillar of Character Counts, which the school has integrated as part of our learning programme for the students this academic year.

As this is a project to allow our students to understand the meaning of citizenship, during the course of the project, we asked them to go away and find a charity or organisation they would like to support. The results were narrowed down to five different organisations that they selected, from these, all students anonymously voted for their chosen charity. After tallying up the results, the Barncancer Fonden, was selected as it had the highest number of votes from both our students and staff at Skyfall, Fritids.

With the support of our Principal, Simon Varley, and Fritids Coordinator, Helen Lindman, the team at Skyfall will donate all the funds raised at their stall to Barncancer Fonden instead of investing the funds back to the school.

So please ensure to make a visit to their stall to see what how hard they have worked for a particularly special cause. Whilst, you are there, you will have the opportunity to swish any other donation you like, directly to Barncancer Fonden, other than the cost of the items purchased at the stall.
