English Speaking Society Invites You #39

English Speaking Society Invites You #39


English Speaking Society Welcomes You & Your Family!


As you may be aware we have set up a non-profit organisation called the "English Speaking Society" (ESS). It started in November, 2018 as an official organisation.

We would like this to be a place where people can come and practice both their English and Swedish skills and a great way to make new friends, or contacts for business or social purposes. We hope to contribute in our community by bringing people together and helping them to find new interests, as well as enjoy the company of someone new. We will have various events through the course of the year to attract people throughout Jönköping to join us and have some fun socialising!  

We would like to warmly welcome all parents and families to attend our events! To do so, please can we ask you to follow us on Facebook to keep updated or sign up for future events, and news from ESS.

Thank you!

Chess Club Competition #38

Chess Club Competition #38

Who would have thought that the classic and forever popular game of Chess would no longer be played face to face but over the internet!

Virtual games are the future! 

Click here to see the website where it all happens!

That's right, our Year 2 students are currently playing Chess with other students across the country to see who will be the ultimate Chess winner. The best thing is that they can all do it from the comfort of their own seat, at their school, at a time that is convenient for all. No other planning is necessary of who will visit who, at which school and what day or time. This will enable a much more smoother and seamless process to compete.

The school that wins, will get a visit from the Swedish Astronaut, Christer Fuglesang!

So best of luck to our Year 2 students who are competing, we wish them the very best but most importantly, we hope they have fun learning and playing at the same time!

Wednesday 27th March, Week 13, the ballot box will be out and the photos of all participants will be on display for everyone to vote for their favourite crazy hat! There were participants from Primary, Junior and our Staff. With all the innovative yet crazy designs on display the competition is strong!

Yeap, it's been a year already since we had our annual Crazy Hat Day! Can you believe that time of the year has come back already, where we all get our creative heads on, to make the most craziest and dare we say, wackiest hat!

On Wednesday 13th March between 10:50 - 12:30, come along to the glass corridor. Here you will witness some wonderful, crazy, silly and amusing innovations our staff and students make at IES Jönköping to take part in some friendly competition!

Year 9 Science Project #35

Year 9 Science Project #35

Take a look at what our Year 9 Science class have been busy experimenting with...building catapults

Their most recent project has entailed them to not only design and build but most excitingly, test their very own catapult!

What is a catapult?

A catapult is a ballistic device to help launch a projectile at a long distance. It was particularly used to build various types of ancient and medieval siege engines.

Take a look at the photos below to see how the project was conducted and tested:
