From the Principal

Greetings,

The spring term is well underway now and both students and staff have been busy becoming expert learners and teachers.

Here are a few activities we have engaged in so far this term:

In junior school our mentor classes have been going ice-skating and to trips to the Army museum.

Year 4 are preparing for the Chess competition in March in Globen "Schack 4", a much enjoyed annual event, and parents are most welcome to join us.

The year 6 students have already taken part in their Swedish National tests, looking confident and well prepared they will now move on to English and Maths after the holiday break.

In senior school we have kicked off our House competitions for this term and we will follow the results with interest during the term.

The year 9s have made their first choice of  "gymnasium" for August 2019.

Our students in Senior school have signed up this week to enter the IGCSE exams this term in English for  First and Second Language, Maths, Science and Computer Science.

The English department have been working on their Dragon's den unit in year 8 which is sponsored by the PTA. There are so many great ideas being created and presented in class.

Our year 9s took part in the annual dance at Täby centrum. Thank you to all the staff supporting with this.

In line with our Listen, Learn, Lead policy we continue to work with our student voice across the whole school through our Student Council, Breakfast Club and Buddies. Homework: Content and quality is a focus at the moment.

We have launched our new school newspaper by students in senior school. I hope you have read the first copy?

All our teaching staff are working on their Professional Development with several taking part in the Cambridge courses for Middle management leadership and teaching now offered at the school.

The PTA organised the ski trips to Romme for Jr and Sr school and both were a resounding success. Thank you to the PTA for all your hard work in organizing and running the event. Thank you to parents for supporting as well.

I would like to wish everyone a wonderful Sports holiday and look forward to the rest of the spring term, starting back on Monday in week 10.
