Skoljoggen 2018 #13

Skoljoggen 2018 #13

We had a wonderful Skoljoggen morning for our Primary and Junior School students today at Vappenvallen for our annual Skoljoggen.

The weather was great and our students were dressed and present on time. The atmosphere was energetic with very enthusiastic and motivated students! They were not only ready to challenge themselves with personal goals and targets of how many laps they will run but there was true team spirit as each class worked as a team to try and achieve a higher total class score than the other classes in their year group.

The results will be revealed to them in their mentor time this week to see how many laps each student ran and how many laps the class ran in total as well as which class ran the most number of laps in the year group!

So fingers crossed for each student and class! But nonetheless, a massive well done to everyone for their hard work, support and positive attitude today!

Junior School Activity Day #11

Wednesday 29th August was the Junior School Activity Day! Each year’s classes spent the afternoon together, playing activities, making new friends, enjoying spending time with new friends and off course enjoying a delicious fika!

It was a great day not only for the students to get to know each other better but for the staff to make the most of this opportunity outside of a classroom atmosphere to get to know their students socially and have the chance to mingle with new staff too!

There were lots of planned activities for the classes to keep themselves busy all afternoon! Some classes stayed in the school as it gave them a good chance to explore the school whilst the other classes spent the afternoon outside of the school premises. Luckily, for them, it was a nice, dry afternoon!

All in all, it was a successful, fun filled afternoon for the Junior School!

Ex-Student Leaves J-Södra for the Premier League! #10

Peter Gwargis is an ex-student at IES Jönköping!

He has been playing for J-Södra at Jönköping and now his football career is really kicking off as he has been offered a once in a lifetime chance to go and play for one of England's football teams, Brighton & Hove Albion! 

Peter has only recently left school and pursued his career in football, not knowing where it could lead him! But at such a young age of 17 years old, even he was in disbelief how suddenly and fast his football career has blossomed!

Please click on the below news article from Jnytt to get more detailed information about where football takes our young and talented Peter Gwargis!

Year 5 Mentor Activity Day #9

Please remember that Wednesday 29th August 2018 is Mentor Activity Day for all Year 5!

The mentor classes will go to Oset Beach after lunch and spend the afternoon enjoying fun activities and games amongst other Year 5 peers and staff. Off course, there will be time for a fika too! However, please ensure your child brings a healthy fika and a water bottle, no energy drinks, godis, chips and chocolate. We would like them to bring a sandwich, or a healthy snack such as fruit.

The classes will leave the school premises at 12:00 and will return to school at 15:00, leaving Oset at 14:30. (If you are happy to allow your child to make their own way home from Oset then please let them know).

We hope it will be a nice warm day but nonetheless please ensure your child brings all the appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear, especially a raincoat!
